The Last Emperor
The Jeremy Thomas Collection
"One of the most intelligent and genuinely artistic historical epics in cinema history" – Variety.
The dramatic history of Pu Yi, the last of the Emperors of China, from his lofty birth and brief reign in the Forbidden City, the object of worship by half a billion people; through his abdication, his decline and dissolute lifestyle; his exploitation by the invading Japanese, and finally to his obscure existence as just another peasant worker in the People's Republic.
