A young firebrand learns the hard way about the practical problems behind political assassination in this lavish period comedy. In 1814, with his reputation in tatters and his rule of France come to an inglorious end, Napoleon Bonaparte flees to the Island of Elba, where his arrival causes no small stir among the citizens. However, not everyone is pleased with his presence, Martino is a young and idealistic schoolteacher who believes Napoleon turned his back on the ideals he fought for in the French Revolution, and doesn’t hesitate to criticize the former Emperor in front of his students. When Martino isn’t busy with his students, he attends to the romantic needs of the beautiful Baroness Emilia, but she’s powerless to help him when his controversial opinions about Elba’s new arrival cause him to be fired. When Martino learns that Napoleon is in need of a personal secretary and librarian, he has a brainstorm — if he can get the job, he’ll be close enough to the former emperor to win his trust and then kill the despot when no one suspects. Martino is awarded the prestigious position, but once he gets to know Napoleon, the great man’s charm and wit make it difficult for Martino to put his deadly plans into motion. N received its North American premiere at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival.
