Watch Trailer

Director: Bernardo Bertolucci
Starring: John Lone, Joan Chen, Peter O’Toole


A 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.

While decidedly imperfect, Bernardo Bertolucci’s epic is still a feast for the eyes.
