PG-13 | | Biography, Drama, History
This was the first western film made in and about the country to be produced with full Chinese government cooperation since 1949.
Reginald Fleming 'R.J.' Johnston:
The Emperor has been a prisoner in his own palace since the day that he was crowned, and has remained a prisoner since he abdicated. But now he's growing up, he may wonder why he's the only person in China who may not walk out of his own front door....
When Johnston and Pu Yi say "farewell" to each other and as the musicians appear and follow Johnston, reflections are visible in such a way that indicate that the scene was actually shot through the glass of a pre-existing structure. The reflections are not consistent with anything else in the shot.
