From 1769 to 1821, Napoléon Bonaparte's life, loves and exceptional destiny but as seen through the eyes of Talleyrand, the cynic and ironic politician, who once was the Emperor of France's Minister of Foreign Affairs.
I was fortunate enough to catch this movie a number of years ago in a film festival, and absolutely loved it! The characters were wonderfully written, as was the dialog (though I'm sure that I missed a lot of the word-play as the movie was subtitled and I, unfortunately do not speak French). It is a far more intelligent film than it's American re-make (Lucky Partners).
It is a shame that this film isn't more readily available in the States, as I would love to see it again.
