A 2001 romantic comedy about UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte based around the premise that he escaped from his second imprisonment at Santa Helena, but that he failed to meet up with the contact man who would have taken him to Paris to start another revolution, that man having died. Thus Napoleon is forced to walk to Paris as a beggar, falling in with a woman who sells melons on the street. Meanwhile the lowly Private chosen to serve as his body double takes a liking to the life of an emperor, even an exiled one, and refuses to admit that he is not Napoleon. Lacking any way to prove he is who he says he is, the real Napoleon lives a humble life, eventually growing to embrace it and falling in love with the woman who helps him.

based around the premise that he Napoleon escaped from his second imprisonment at Santa St. Helena, but that he failed to meet up with the contact man who would have taken him to Paris to start another revolution, that man having died. Thus Napoleon is forced to walk to Paris as a common beggar, falling in with a woman who sells melons on the street. Meanwhile the lowly Private chosen to serve as his body double takes a liking to the life of an emperor, even an exiled one, and refuses to admit that he is not Napoleon. Lacking any way to prove he is who he says he is, the real Napoleon lives a humble life, eventually growing to embrace it and falling in love with the woman who helps him.



* WindmillPolitical: The entire premise of the plot is that Napoleon and his followers have an incorrect-bordering-on-delusional belief that the people love their former emperor and would gladly rise up to put him back on the throne. Justified in that the ''first'' time Napoleon escaped from exile, that's pretty much exactly what did happen.

* BodyDouble: Who refuse to admit he's fake. And later die on the same day as history know Napoleon to have died.
* ForegoneConclusion: We know that history know Napoleon to have died in exile without ever escaping. The beginning of the film even underscore this. So we know from square one that the protagonist will never manage to start his new revolution, or even be accepted as the real Napoleon.
