(OK) So consistent ans sustained in its grandeur, since the beginning with the child's play battle in the snow. There the film is planted, in great episodes, of personal intimate story and big History...

Director Abel Gance's epic biopic of the life of Napoleon from his days as a schoolboy to his invasion of Italy soon after his appointment as commander-in-chief of the French army in March 1796 and the subsequent invasion of Italy. As a young lad, his talent for tactics were shown when playing a war game in the snow - with snowballs as their primary weapons. As as adult, Napoleon is deeply affected by the revolution and the chaos that results in everyday life. On his return to France from Corsica, we follow his life through his military career and his rise to power.

"17.1. 2024 Out of all the biopics and historical epics ever made, Abel Gance's "Napoleon" is the most creative and captivating one and the climax of Gance's experimental achievements. Gance's intention wasn't to only present important details of Napoleon's era but recreate its spirit. The director did this by liberating the camera: he put mounting devices on the chests of cameramen, cars, sledges, horsebacks, and guillotines. In the snowball fight scene in the beginning of the film, it looks l"

"From Richard Schickel’s 1981 TIME review of a reissue of Napoleon: “On April 7, 1927, Charles de Gaulle and his friend, André Malraux, saw the Paris premiere of a new movie. At its end, the two great-men-to-be were on their feet, cheering. Malraux remembered De Gaulle waving his long arms and crying, ‘Bravo, magnifique!’ It is said that De Gaulle never forgot the images of glory he found that evening in Abel Gance’s epic reconstruction of another young soldier’s climb to greatness, "
