Imperial Venus

1963 PG

Gina Lollobrigida stars in this lavish historical epic dramatizing the life of Paulette Bonaparte, tempestuous sister of French emperor Napoleon, and the diminutive tyrant's jealous attempts to control her fiery behavior. Twice forced by Napoleon to marry men she does not love and suffering his disapproval of her many lovers, she nevertheless stands by her brother's side through his darkest days of exile. Jean Delannoy directs.
