Although the movie reports Napoléon Bonaparte's height as 5 feet 2 inches correctly, this was actually in pre-metric French units, which would be 5 feet 6 inches in British-American units - an above-average height for a 19th-century Frenchman who would therefore not be as sensitive about his height as the movie portrays.

This is THE definitive work on the nature of good and evil. It asks the age old question: Who is the Supreme Being, and what is it exactly that he wants from us? Terry Gilliam gives us a morality tale wrapped inside a an epic poem seen in the guise of an abstract painting.
As a film, all the seperate elements are perfect, and blended together seemlessly by the hand of the maestro Gilliam. It is not only a brilliant comedy, but an enthralling story as well. This is a film that sparks discussion and debate that goes on well into the night.
It is the rarest of all cinematic creatures-- a movie that is a genuine pleasure to watch and one that makes you think.
