One of this year’s most awaited cinema releases, Ridley Scott’s “Napoleon” is hitting Moroccan cinemas on November 22.
Starring Oscar winner Joaquin Phoenix, Vanessa Kirby, and Tahar Rahim, “Napoleon” focuses on the rise and fall of French historical figure Napoleon Bonaparte. The film traces Bonaparte’s relentless conquest of power through the prism of his passionate and tormented relationship with Joséphine, the great love of his life.
Author of memorable movies, Ridley Scott evokes the military genius and political strategies of Napoleon while staging some of the most impressive battle sequences ever filmed.
Napoleon established himself as a liberator from a modest family, one of the very first figures to prove that talent is not dependent on one’s background.
His genius in strategic matters and his reputation as an implacable man were such that it took various coalitions of European states to defeat him. But off the battlefield, his life is shaped as much by his obsession with Joséphine – his mistress, his wife, his empress – as by his conquering will.
A great lover of Morocco where he filmed Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, Black Hawk Dawn, Body of Lies as well as a large part of Gladiator 2, British director Ridley Scott returns to the Kingdom’s cinemas with this historical film.
By playing Napoleon, Joaquin Phoenix signs a second collaboration with Ridley Scott, after his unforgettable role of Emperor Commodus in “Gladiator”.
After the release of the latest Hayao Miyazaki animated film, “The Boy and The Heron”, distribution company Film Event Consulting, in partnership with Pathe BC Afrique, invites Moroccans to discover Scott’s newest production.
Film Event Consulting, based in Oujda, demonstrates its commitment to providing a wide and varied selection of films in the Moroccan distribution market by introducing recently released big productions.
