Abstract

The Last Emperor is a 1987 epic biographical drama film, directed by Bernardo Bertolucci, about the life of Puyi (1906-1967), the last Emperor of China. Puyi's autobiography, From Emperor to Citizen, published initially in 1960 and re-edited in 1964, provided the basis for the screenplay. The film depicts the period from Puyi's ascent to the throne as a small boy to his imprisonment and political rehabilitation by the Communist Party of China in the 1950s.
