The Emperor’s New Clothes – 4 stars

The Emperor’s New Clothes. A real find with a great concept. Napolean (Ian Holm) sits on St. Helena, but makes his escape to reclaim his Empire by use of the services of a look-alike. The plan: Napolean gets to France, the double declares himself a fake, and Napolean stirs the national passions to his rise once again. Needless to say, things don’t work out that way, and Napolean has to get himself a real job. Holm is pitch perfect. The picture is well-paced and a lot of fun.
