I reckon the Napoleon section is overlong and doesn't quite come to life, despite Ian Holm, which is a pity - but after that, things pick up considerably. There is a heartbreaking tragedy in the protagonist being benevolently plucked from Mycenae just when he has found something like a true home and a true father. I rather liked the ending! I like the sense of his being left totally on his own - though I think he's probably ultimately better off anyway. The glimpses of the TV game show that we see at the start are hilarious!

Not a bad idea, but Terry Gilliam doesn't make it come to life. His only good work was with the Pythons.
