N (Io e Napoleone)

Synopsis: Elba island, 1814. Martino is a young teacher, idealist and strongly anti Napoleon, in love with the beautiful and noble Baroness Emily. The young man finds himself serving as librarian to the Great Emperor in exile, whom he deeply hates, yet soon begins recording Napoleon's memoirs, getting to know and learning to value the man behind the myth. Among seductions and affairs, expectations and fears, he will craft a precise portrait that nevertheless will not manage to hide a final, inevitable, disappointment.

by ass-kissing painters.

The crowd is enthusiastic

about something worse than them...

this places more blame on he

who charms and captivates them.

The more they venerate

that bloodthirsty being...

the more I hate him.

Good morning.

- I said good morning.

- Good morning, Ferrante.

Most of the cargo has been loaded.

- Did you see him?

- No, I was busy.

Are you ready?

Brother, I'm confused.

Are you setting sail or not?

They should have cut off

his head...

but instead they make him

our sovereign.

What does that have to do

with your departure?

You're mixing work and politics.

Tell me why! I'm an imbecile!

I consider it philosophically

correct, ethical!

Politics at the expense of others...

removes you from duties

and real life, which is elsewhere.

Elsewhere, in the shop?

You lost your job, you surround

yourself with faded books...

containing no trace of reality.

- Let go of my arm!

- Answer me, are you setting sail?

Is that a question or an order?

If it's an order, let it be clear

that I take orders from no one.


Holy Mary...


- Careful!

- It's your brother's lunch.

Room service! Absurd!


- Sorry.

- He's so lazy.

plus these bales of buckwheat.

When your brother's ready,

they'll set sail.

Martino won't go.

You must go, Oreste.

I know your wife is ill...

My daughter gives birth

at the end of the month.

- May I speak to you?

- Quiet!

So, it isn't possible?

Master, if you command me...

If you command him...

You be quiet!

Go on, I'll see you at the pier.

So I'll have to set sail,

with all the things I have to do!

Try to understand, I want to stay

and see what Napoleon does.

Are you fighting?

Diamantina, your brother won't leave

because he hates Napoleon.

- Yes.

- I hate him too...
