10 June 2000 | by (Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this mini series when it first was aired, and was thrilled to see it again 10 years later. I am frustrated this wonderful portrayal of Napoleon and Josephine which inspired me to research the Napoleonic Era is not available to rent or purchase. After 13 years, one would think one could purchase this movie. I hope Warner Brothers will release it so others may enjoy it.
