Director's cut (featuring over an hour of extra footage) of Bernardo Bertolucci's Oscar-winning epic about the last imperial ruler of China. In 1908 the three-year-old Pu Yi is made Lord of Ten Thousand Years, but is soon forced to abdicate. He is, however, kept on as a symbolic figure and educated by an English tutor (Peter O'Toole) until he is thrown out by the new government. Now in his late twenties, Pu Yi takes his two wives to Tientsin and lives the life of a playboy.
