It's an unrated drama/history/romance, written by Jacques Fieschi, Xavier Giannoli, and Yves Stavrides, adapted from a Balzac novel, and directed by Giannoli. It stars Benjamin Voisin, Cécile de France, Vincent Lacoste. In 1821, Lucien de Rubempré (César winner Voisin) arrives in Paris as a sensitive, idealistic young poet determined to write a reputation-making novel. Instead, he finds himself swept into journalism, whose influence and reach is booming with the help of the printing press. Under the mentorship of cynical editor Étienne Lousteau (César winner Lacoste), Lucien agrees to write rave theater reviews for bribes, achieving material success at the expense of his conscience. To see more, visit
