Plot Sypnosis:

The monumental masterpiece by cult director Bernardo Bertolucci is now available for the first time on Ultra HD Blu-ray. In 1988, the film won an impressive 9 Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director awards. Thanks to a brand new restoration of the original negative, the magnificent images now shine in 4K resolution.

This is the almost unbelievable life story of Puyi, who was brought to Beijing in 1908 as a two-year-old and crowned the new emperor there. From then on, an army of servants takes care of the godlike but isolated child emperor. But outside the palace walls, the revolution soon rages and the millennia-old imperial rule is coming to an end: Puyi is THE LAST EMPEROR. The visually stunning masterpiece impressively traces the path of his life: from his brief reign to his forced abdication and expulsion to his search for meaning as a disempowered person and his collaboration with Japan, for which he was imprisoned for many years before dying as a simple citizen.
