Abel Gances monumental tribute to the steady rise to power of Napoléon Bonaparte is a genre-defining breakthrough in cinematic history and a landmark of technical and artistic invention. The story of Napoléons ascension from lowly Corsican outsider to emperor is fertile ground for Gances outrageously daring and audacious style. From a snowball fight at the young Napoléons boarding school to the siege of Toulon and the terror of the French Revolution, violent, beautiful, and unforeseen images are captured by Gances mostly handheld camera, interspersing Napoléons heroic posturing with dizzying verité depictions of breakneck action.
