One of the most ambitious productions in television history, Napoleon is an epic drama as extraordinary as its subject. Follow young Bonaparte's ascent from a simple Corsican solider to the most powerful man on earth, and go beyond the battlefield to examine the political intrigues, personal struggles, and complicated romances that marked Napoleon's rise to power and the eventual distintegration of his empire. With an all-star cast, direction from Yves Simoneau (Nuremburg, Amelia Earhart), and a script adapted by Didier Decoin (Les Miserables, Jakob the Liar) from Max Gallo's bestselling novel, Napoleon contrasts the man and the legend, and illuminates every aspect of his complicated character and monumental legacy.
