Abel Gance’s heroic depiction of the rise of Napoleon Bonaparte is an undisputed cinema landmark.
Renowned for its groundbreaking technical innovations, including a stunning triptych finale, Gance’s visionary epic traverses many of the formative experiences that shaped Napoleon’s rapid advancement. Cool under pressure, Bonaparte overcomes fierce rivals, deadly seas and political machinations to seal his imperial destiny. The story’s chapters play out in exhilarating fashion, tied together by an incredible feat of editing and technical ingenuity. With an equally enthralling score composed and conducted by Carl Davis (newly recorded in 7.1), this new digital restoration presents the silent masterpiece in all of its grandiose glory, with rich velvety blacks combining with gorgeously coloured tints and tones. Truly a magnificent big-screen experience.
