In this glorious historical drama, Gustave Eiffel (multiple award winning actor Romain Duris in fine form), a well-respected engineer known as the 'magician of iron', is currently basking in the success of designing the framework of the Statue of Liberty among his many engineering feats. When asked by the Parisian government to design something spectacular for the 1889 Paris World Fair, he comes up with a simple idea to build a subway.

While he contemplates his design, Eiffel crosses path with a mysterious woman (Emma Mackey, Sex Education) from his past who encourages him to go bold with his idea. He agrees, but as his design gets more complicated, he's left battling banks, poorly paid workers, politicians and even the people of Paris who ridicule the 'monstrosity' causing him further frustration.

With stunning cinematography, director Martin Bourboulon spins an enchanting tale with parallel stories that explore the headstrong engineer's grand vision as he battles both his professional and personal passions to create a stunning masterpiece that has stood the test of time.
