The last emperor (1987)
Mark Peploe/ Bernardo Bertolucci
The Last Emperor is a biographical film telling the life story of Aisin-Gioro Puyi, the last Emperor of China.
It follows his life from its elite beginnings in the Forbidden City, where he was crowned at age of three and worshipped by half a billion people. He was later forced to abdicate and unable to fend for himself in the outside world, became a dissolute and exploited shell of a man dying in obscurity.
