s Napoleon was to be at once a character study and a sweeping epic, replete with grandiose battle scenes featuring thousands of extras. To write his original screenplay, Kubrick embarked on two years of intensive research

with the help of dozens of assistants and an Oxford Napoleon specialist, he amassed an unparalleled trove of research and preproduction material, including approximately 15, 000 location scouting photographs and 17, 000 slides of Napoleonic imagery. No stone was left unturned in Kubrick apos

s nearly-obsessive quest to uncover every piece of information history had to offer about Napoleon. But alas, Kubrick apos

Мужчине нужны разные эмоции. Дуже атмосферне випадкове чудо. Несколько минут терпишь, да она не последняя. Чтобы я в такую влюбился.
