I suppose we're grateful to WaterBearer films for making this odd film available to us. It would seem to have been originally shot in a wide screen format as there's a considerable amount of pan and scan. The subtitles are minimal. I have no Greek but those in French aren't entirely accurate nor complete. The film is episodic and only one of the segment's title is given an English subtitle. The credits are also in Greek and less than instructive. I feel the picture could have been more meaningful had we had a better grasp on what was happening. The repetitive reference to Wilde and Douglas reinforces the comments of my predecessor. The one really explicit pick-up sequence early on in the film ends outside the street person's curtained window and we have no silhouette nor even the extinguishing of a light within -- so who knows whether pour Napoleon ever had a satisfactory sexual experience. Still some fascinating performances. It did, however, leave one feeling cheated of a complete story.
