  Abel Gance (1889-1981)
Gance’s remarkable symbolism is exemplified in the film’s conclusion: as the old railway mechanic dies quietly and painlessly in his mountain chalet, his daughter joins the local villagers outside in the snow in a circular farandole dance, a dance in which nature itself, in the form of clouds, participates.
Gance’s radical technique is thus wedded to a radical vision of history at odds with the classical restraint which had long held both social organization and aesthetics in check.
Abel Gance was a giant of cinema art, a genius whose artistic courage and humanist vision created masterpieces that inspired many other directors, from his silent film contemporaries in the 1920s to the French Nouvelle Vague of the 1950s and 1960s.

 Napoleon
Gance has been recongnized as an innovative filmmaker whose vision went far beyond the limits of the technology available to him (wide-screen, split screen, colour).
The British film historian Kevin Brownlow, who has restored both the film and the reputation of Gance in the English-speaking world, quotes Gance as saying that "a major fault of Napoleon was its 'abuse of documentation'" and that Napoleon was a tragic figure trapped in the "whirlpool" of history.
Gance's excessive, often self-indulgent masterpiece is visually astounding with its use of split-screen effects, etc., and at moments very moving (for example, in the college snowball fight).

 Napoleon
Even though Gance was never able to finish his gigantic historical fresco (designed for showing on several screens at the same time), the viewer is nevertheless carried away by the film's beautiful construction and the lyricism of the images.
The pace is breathless, doubtless as a result of the new techniques which Gance invented specially for this film: cameras on horse-back or on swings, superimposition of images, etc. As for Honegger's magnificent music, it remains as powerfully seductive as it was when first written.
And Gance loved this film so much that that he released later versions, notably one with sound, a feature which the director had planned for when he made the actors articulate the words of the dialogue for the soundtrack that was to come.
