Napoleon

Abel Gance's original 1927 masterpiece is a must-see not only for silent film buffs, but for all interested in classic world cinema. You are taken from the future emperor's first strategic victory, a schoolyard snowball fight, to the climactic invasion of Italy. This restoration, originally presented in 1981, was the result of many years work by silent film historian Kevin Brownlow. The concluding triptych scenes are a staggering and innovative achievement that were years ahead of their time.
