The Last Emperor

Puyi, the last Emperor of China, died on this day in 1967, exactly 50 years ago. In honour of the occasion, I’ve decided to share one of my personal favourite movies, the 1987 British-Italian film The Last Emperor, about the life of Puyi, which was the first Western film authorized to film in the Forbidden City in Beijing. Enjoy the lost splendour of Imperial China!
