I lost interest in the movie very early on. I did not continue watching it. I would not recommend this movie to watch.

This is a delightful series that I enjoyed years ago. It seems equally good now. Ian Holm plays Napoleon very effectively, but T. P. McKenna steals the first episode. What a marvelous actor he was!

This production shows of how a man who started off with little and ended up becoming Emperor and all the women he seduced. Poor Josephine! I love this DVD and actor Ian Holm was wonderful playing Napoleon.

Very nice period costumes but writing and acting clearly not today's standard. I should not have spent $24.99 to view it.

I love all things Napoleon so had to see if this would be good. Unfortunately it pales to the Napoleon and Josephine Love Story with Armand Assante and Jacqueline Bissette (spelling??) that never seems to age. I believe they were produced relatively close maybe one in the 70s and the other in the 80s but this one is pretty boring and not near as beautiful. I have watched the one with Armand at least 10 times and always love watching it. I would pass on this one.
