Abstract

Adieu Bonaparte examines the Napoleonic Wars through the French campaign in Egypt in 1798. General Cafarelli is transformed by his experiences there, rejecting his militarism and embracing Enlightenment ideals by supporting the resistance to Bonaparte's rule. Director Youssef Chahine, widely regarded as Egypt's best, frames the film as a clash between modern humanism and ancient traditions, ongoing themes in Egypt's independence and nation-building.
