Monsieur N is a 2003 French film directed by Antoine de Caunes and starring Philippe Torreton. The film tells the story of Napoleon Bonaparte (Torreton) during his imprisonment by the British on St. Helena. While on the island, Napoleon was able to befriend a number of the guards and officers, who helped plan his escape and evade the island's Governor, Sir Hudson Lowe (Richard E. Grant). A young English officer arrives at the island to keep guard on Napoleon, but the officer is secretly fascinated by the military genius. The movie changes the accepted history by claiming that Napoleon's body buried at Les Invalides is actually that of the English officer, and that Napoleon escaped to Louisiana, where he died. The filmmakers also suggest that perhaps Napoleon was able to attend "his" funeral at Les Invalides with his English wife. Also starring Jay Rodan, Elsa Zylberstein, Roschdy Zem, and Bruno Putzulu, Monsiuer N was well received by critics.
