I was delighted to find out that "Napoleon and Josephine: A Love Story" is, 25 years after its original airing, finally on commercial DVD. I taped this to VHS way back in 1987 when it first broadcast, only (much to my dismay) to accidentally tape part of it over with something else. Over the years since, I've hunted down and traded for VHS and DVD-R copies of varying qualities from video collectors. That this classic has finally gotten an official release gives me a lot of hope that another great 1980's TV costume epic, Simon Langton's "Casanova", will soon receive the same treatment.

This miniseries is sumptuously produced, with affecting performances by Armand Assante (Napoleon) and Jacqueline Bisset (Josephine) at its core, fittingly so since the film is, after all, about the relationship of this legendary couple. The movie is overall quite accurate in its depiction of the story, reproducing many famous events both from Napoleon's life and that of the duo. This is really, I think, Jackie Bisset's movie, and she makes one of the best Josephines I've seen - though, to be sure, she's quite a bit more attractive than the real-life Josephine de Beauharnais, who made up for what she might have lacked in looks with tremendous charm and allure. Armand Assante makes a commanding, passionate Napoleon, and Stephanie Beacham, one of my personal favorites, does well in her supporting role as Josephine's closest friend Therese Tallien. The disk is rather Spartan in its setup (no extras, no closed-captioning) but the video transfer quality is excellent.

I am so excited to find out that this movie is now on DVD. I had recorded this myself about 12 years ago on VCRS. It is wonderful! I love Armand Assante, he is so masterful in this, and a perfect Napoleon. I was a member of the board of the Napoleonic Society of America, so I am in a position to know how well he was depicted. and.it is very accurate. Also loved Jacqueline Bisset in this...she was a perfect Josephine. I went to Malmaison on a Napoleonic tour which is beautifully depicted in this movie.
Even if you didn't love Napoleon, this is a passionate story of love, seduction, and some betrayals. Armande Assante brings Napoleon to life.
This movie is a MUST for Napoleonic fans, and also for those who are into love stories...this is the best ever! I highly recommend it..and thanks to someone for putting it on DVD's

I have been waiting and waiting for this release. My excitement at seeing this finally for sale was that of a 5-year old when the first streaks of dawn hit the window pains on Christmas morning. As soon as I saw this was by Warner Brothers, my excitement dwindled to despair. And yes, in checking IMDB, this miniseries is missing 10 minutes of footage.

How can it be that movies are being released and there is no note that they are not complete? Shouldn't this be (dare I say it) ILLEGAL. Why does Warner Brothers keep doing this to beloved miniseries that we wait and wait for? The prices are set high enought that they shouldn't have to scrimp. Does everyone realize that the cost is less than $1 per DVD?

How is is that the UK can receive complete discs but we can't in the US? It just doesn't seem right.

I SAW THIS MINISERIES WHEN IT FIRST AIRED WHEN I WAS 12 YEARS OLD. I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR IT EVER SINCE. ARMAND WAS SO INTENSE IN HIS PORTRAYL AND PASSION. JOSEPHINE OR ANY WOMAN WOULD HAVE FOLLOWED THAT MAN TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH.

Armand Assante played this role very well. Anything with Napoleon and Josephine I love. It is a true romantic story. I loved the movie and the story was alright. It is true love between the both of them that has lasted in history since their deaths.

The series is great, and recommend this to all history students. I also believe the series is accurate and the best part are the battle scenes. I like the one in the Egypt Campaign.The ending is also great, but it did not explain the main reasons why Napoleon was exile to St. Helena, after the loss in Waterloo. The end is not really the complete saga, its just the beginning of the myth, Napoleon.

I first saw this when I was 14 yrs old. Not knowing anything of history, mainly preoccupied with cars, trucks and tractors. Then I saw this on TV with my parents and it opened my eyes, to the French Revolution, Marie Antoinette, the British Regency and Napoleonic France. This TV series is made best by the amazing array of stars and their talent set against the backdrop of some of the most beautiful palaces in France.

I have waited a long time for this TV series to be released on DVD and I was so impatient to get it that I paid for the next day delivery, which is something I never do!

A made for TV movie from 1987 about one of the greatest (and perhaps tragic) love stories of all time; the Corsican upstart and impoverished, but ravishing and aristocratic Josephine. The story line is a bit campy (especially the battle scenes), and not exactly historically accurate (besides, a brown eyed Napoleon? Oh well). Filmed largely on location in all its opulant grandeur with exquisitely designed period costumes. This one of the better made for TV movies made during the 70's and 80's when these type of movies were popular. The video quality was very good.

If you're into the Napoleonic Era, enjoy beautiful costumes and settings, or simply enjoy a good love story, this two disc video is a good buy. Armand Assante stars as Napoleon Bonaparte with Jacqueline Bisset as Josephine. Anthony Perkins, Stephanie Beacham, Patrick Cassidy, and Ione Skye round out the cast.
