A historical mystery thriller about Napoleon Bonaparte. Sir Hudson Lowe (Richard E. Grant) is assigned to guard Napoleon (Philippe Torreton) while the latter is in exile in Saint Helena.

This, along with the fact that keeping Napoleon on the island is costing the British a great sum of money, leads Lowe to consider drastic action.

Critics' reviews
  • "Fascinating and likable (...) I liked it better than the more blustery 'Master and Commander', which it distantly resembles"
