“Any ideas for the competition? “We must be more free. More daring.” Build it bigger! Pathé in France unveiled the first official trailer for the intense romantic drama Eiffel, set during the construction of the Eiffel Tower in Paris in the late 1800s. The film not only chronicles the struggles of famous engineer Gustave Eiffel as he created this iconic monument, but also his romance with another woman, a “long lost and forbidden passion that inspires her to change the skyline of Paris forever”. Oh my. The government asks Eiffel to design something spectacular for the 1889 Paris Universal Exhibition, but Eiffel just wants to design the metro. Suddenly, everything changes when Eiffel crosses the path of a mysterious woman from his past. Featuring Romain Duris like Gustave Eiffel, Emma Mackey like Adrienne Bourgès, and Pierre Deladonchamps like Antoine Restac, with Armande Boulanger, Philippe hedgehog, Andranic Manet, Juliette Blanche. I actually think it sounds pretty good, yes a little melodramatic and campy, but filled with passion and love.

Here is the first official French trailer (+ posters) of Martin Bourboulon Eiffel, on Pathé’s YouTube:

Barely finished his collaboration on the Statue of Liberty, the famous engineer Gustave Eiffel is on top of the world. Now the French government is pressuring him to design something spectacular for the 1889 Paris World’s Fair, but Eiffel just wants to design the metro. Suddenly, everything changes when Eiffel crosses the path of a mysterious woman from his past. Their long lost and forbidden passion inspires him to forever change the skyline of Paris. You’ll never look at the Eiffel Tower the same way again! Eiffel is directed by the French filmmaker Martin Bourboulon, director of the two comedies Mom or dad and French divorce previously, as well as some short films and some televised works. The screenplay is by Thomas Bidegain, Caroline Bongrand, Martin Bourboulon, Martin Brossollet and Natalie Carter. Produced by Vanessa van Zuylen. This premiered at the Alliance Française French Film Festival earlier this year, and opens in France from this August. No US releases have been scheduled – stay tuned. First impression? All good?
