Dickens` epic tale

Dickens` epic tale follows the fortunes of a disillusioned English lawyer, Sidney Carton (Dirk Bogarde), whose solace is drink and who bears an uncanny resemblance to a young French aristocrat named Darnay. Carton defends Darnay but ends up falling in love with Darnay`s fiancee Lucy.
When Darnay is imprisoned by the revolutionary mob, Carton is given the chance to redeem himself as he leaves for Paris for Darnay`s aid. A truly gripping tale, incomparably told and flawlessly performed.
