Surprisingly good for a TV production
21 February 2005 | by (Sibiu,Romania) – See all my reviews

Though filmed for TV as a sequel,this picture rises far above the soap-opera level.OK,historically it is not so instructive like other Napoleon-biopics,yet it's still pleasant to watch. The main reason is the perfect sexual chemistry between Armand Assante and Jacqueline Bisset in the title roles.Armand Assante,being of Italian origin,is Napoleon-besides Charles Boyer,no other actor resembles to him so striking-his austere,energetic,very masculine,authoritarian beauty really looks Corsican:an athletic,sun-drenched,proud Corsican ready to conquer the world.While Jacqueline Bisset is very attractive,sensual and stylish like we would expect from a Parisian grand dame of fiery creole descent. Even if history comes short,the love story is worth watching.
