Emperor's New Clothes, The
Source: Catholic News Service
Pleasing historical comedy that has Napoleon Bonaparte (Ian Holm), exiled on St. Helena, sneak off, leaving a double (Holm again) in his place to reclaim the throne of France, but upon his arrival in Paris he discovers the sentiments for the emperor have changed and ends up falling in love with a poor widow (Iben Hjejle). Holm's superb performance makes the slender what-if premise in director Alan Taylor's film enjoyable, although the opportunities for humor are mostly squandered. An implied live-in relationship and fleeting crass language. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
