A Napoleon Fantasy: “The Emperor’s New Clothes” – A Movie Review

A confection of a costume drama by Alan Taylor, The Emperor’s New Clothes (2002) is about a make-believe scheme to get the imprisoned Napoleon Bonaparte off the island of  St. Helena and back in Gallic power.  Taylor’s moviemaking team–Andrea Crisanti on production design, Rachel Portman on music, etc.–quit themselves honorably, and the acting is a joy.  Will there ever be a better Bonaparte than Ian Holm, the epitome of variety?  And the Dutch actress Iben Hjejle, speaking English, is warmly true.  How come I never see her anymore?
