Napoléon, Act 1, Part 2: ‘Napoleon and the French Revolution’:
Visually stunning and boldly experimental, Abel Gance’s acclaimed silent epic traces the French Emperor’s rise to power. Newly restored with an orchestral score by Carl Davis, Napoléon offers one of the most engrossing, surprisingly modern, experiences of French cinema.
