Missing Images of St Helena

I have recently come across Cédric Villain's short film about Napoleon's exile, death and exhumation.

I would be less than honest if I didn't admit that at times it challenges my comprehension of spoken French, but that doesn't seem to matter too much! I loved its graphics, its unemotional commentary and its abstract, matter of fact treatment of a subject which has generated millions of words and so much passion.

If I have missed any factual errors hopefully my French reader(s) will inform me!
