Earlier this spring I was, as always of course, one of the first ones to inform you that the French are preparing a lavish new period set adventure, and now we have the first trailer and magnificent character posters for THE EMPEROR OF PARIS (L'Empereur de Paris) in which our favourite French star Vincent Cassel takes the lead role, alongside always lovely and stunningly charismatic Russian star Olga Kurylenko, in the story  of François Vidocq, the legend of the underground, the only man to

WHAT'S THE FILM ABOUT?
Under the reign of Napoleon, François Vidocq,  the only man to have escaped from the biggest prisons of the country, is a legend of the Parisian underground. Left to die after his last spectacular escape, the ex-convict tries to be forgotten in the guise of a simple trader. His past caught him, however, and, after being accused of a murder he did not commit, he offered a deal to the chief of security: he joined the police to fight the underworld, in exchange for his freedom. Despite exceptional results, it provokes the hostility of his fellow police officers and the fury of the underworld who put a price on his head ... alive or dead.

  1. Vincent Cassel sure does have the proper tough looks of a legendary figure.
    We call it "state witness" nowadays, when a convict makes a deal with the state: admits guilt and testifies against his accomplices. His troubles don't end with that,however.

  2. Vincent Cassel is one of my favorites and I think a perfect choice for the role. Though, I don't think much has changed when you describe Paris of later years as dirty and smelly, as it did still have some dirty, smelly elements to it while we were there over the summer.

    1. It is the same in my city, the centre is beautiful and tidy, but step just 100m away from downtown and you will step into filth and depressive greyness :) Did you see Vicent's young new wify? :)

    2. I had not seen his wife, but I just looked her up and what a pretty one he snagged. Hopefully, they last, but you never do know with celebrities.
