Synopsis

Aspiring poet Lucien de Rubempr joins a cynical team of journalists in 19th century Paris and discovers that the written word can be an instrument of both beauty and deceit in this sumptuous adaptation of Honor de Balzac's LOST ILLUSIONS.

"The film's galloping momentum is exhilarating, and there is broad comedy in its elision of carnal desire and social ambition." -Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
