Abel Gance’s heroic depiction of the rise of Napoleon Bonaparte is an undisputed cinema landmark. Famed for its ground breaking technical innovations – including its famous triptych finale. Monumental and visionary, the story’s chapters play out in exhilarating fashion tied together by an incredible feat of editing and technical ingenuity. Featuring an equally mammoth score composed and conducted and newly recorded by Carl Davis. This definitive digital restoration presents this silent masterpiece in all its grandiose glory.
