Napoléon Reviews

August 5, 2020
[Napoléon] was produced on rather a lavish scale with a large cast. But the photography is very poor, the scenes jumpy and disconnected. The picture is on the whole, tiresome.

There are innumerable war scenes, and these were done clumsily. The romance with Josephine is not sufficiently played up.

The photography is wretched and the direction even worse than that. If I was running a house and the picture was offered me I wouldn't play it for nothing.

There is in this edition of the picture an effort to cover too many historical incidents and the consequence is that quite a number of the passages are confused.

Apart from the fireworks the film is blocky, arrhythmic, and resolutely superficial.
