The surviving clip is a 4K digital restoration produced in 2015 by the Cinémathèque française and the Institut Lumière from a 35 mm nitrate print tinted and colored with a brush, with Lumière perforations. The encounter depicted is the November 25 1804 meeting between Napoleon Bonaparte and Pope Pius VI in Fontainebleau where they discussed the coronation, and is part of Lumière "historical views and reconstructed scenes" (Vues historiques et scènes reconstituées).

Earliest Napoleon on film

Napoleon is one of the most filmed historical characters in early film, and this short view is the first one. It is a pretty simple, short film, that requires much of the actors that deliver quite well. The pope needs to keep his face, and Napoleon moves around while changing mood into anger until the finale of throwing the papers to the floor. The colored version is well done and a nice piece of preserved history.
