Napoleon digitally re-mastered
Famed for its ground-breaking technical innovations – including its famous triptych finale – and a running time of 5 ½ hours, Gance’s silent screen epic traverses many of the formative experiences that shaped Napoleon’s rapid advancement.
Cool under pressure, Bonaparte overcomes fierce rivals, the deadly Terror and political machinations to seal his imperial destiny.
Monumental and visionary, the story’s chapters play out in exhilarating fashion tied together by an incredible feat of editing and technical ingenuity.
