The iconic Eiffel Tower proudly stands on the Champ de Mars in the heart of Paris, a beacon of French artistry and ingenuity. But what do we
know of Gustave Eiffel, the engineering genius for whom the wrought-iron lattice tower is named? This lovingly detailed biopic recreates
Paris in the late 19th century to tell his story.
Having already achieved international recognition for his work – which included the gargantuan framework for the Statue of Liberty – Eiffel was in high demand. He wanted to design the Paris Subway, but the French government had other ideas: they wanted a spectacular centrepiece for the 1889 World’s Fair. Initially struggling for inspiration, everything changes when Eiffel re-encounters a mysterious woman he once knew many years ago.
An all-star cast that includes Romain Duris (The Spanish Apartment) as Eiffel and Emma Mackey (Netflix’s Sex Education) as Adrienne Bourgès, the woman from his past, lead this gorgeous historical film, inviting audiences to be swept away by the passion and brilliance behind the creation of France’s greatest cultural icon.
Eiffel is released on Thursday 14 October at all participating cinemas
