A delightful confection…
This is a charming movie, a shame it didn’t get more notice when it was in the theaters.
Ian Holm plays Napoleon who uses the old “switcheroo” to escape St. Helena.
But his substitute enjoys the job so much that Napoleon’s escape is never announced, and he eventually dies leaving “the real Napoleon” loose in France without an army.
Great and Delightful Satire of the Last Years of Napoleon Bonaparte
Napoleon Bonaparte (Ian Holm) is exiled in Saint Helena, after being defeated in Waterloo, and his loyal friends plot a daring plan to upraise Paris: Napoleon would swap place with the sailor and deck washer Eugene Lenormand (Ian Holm), and once in Paris with Napoleonic loyalists, Eugene would expose himself to the British troops. However, the ship where Napoleon is hidden does not harbor in Paris, and the impostor enjoys his new lifestyle and does not reveal his true identity. Meanwhile, Napoleon falls in love with Nicole ‘Pumpkin’ Truchaut (Iben Hjejle), the widow of a loyal soldier of his troops. ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’ is a great and delightful satire of the last years of Napoleon Bonaparte’s life. The cast is magnificent, highlighting the performance of Ian Holm and the gorgeous Iben Hjejle (the young prostitute Liva Psilander of ‘Mifune’). The reconstitution of the period and the photography of the streets of Paris are also amazing. The lunatics pretending to be Napoleon, symbol of crazy people, in the institution for mentally ill is one of the funniest parts of the movie. ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’ has comedy, drama and romance in right doses and is a great entertainment, recommended for the whole family. My vote is eight.
