Loosely based on true events, Martin Bourboulon‘s Eiffel is, first and foremost, a love story. Hot off his successful collaboration on the Statue of Liberty, celebrated engineer Gustave Eiffel’s most fervent desire is to build the Paris metro. But the French powers that be have other ideas. They’re badgering him to design something spectacular for the upcoming 1889 Paris World’s Fair. Eiffel is not at all interested… until he runs into an old flame who reignites a long smoldering, but far from extinguished, youthful passion. And suddenly his imagination tales flight.

The son of French producer Frédéric Bourboulon, Martin Bourboulon directed his first short film, Sale Hasard, in 2007. He went on to direct the TV series Un journée dehouf (2005) and numerous commercials. He made his foray into feature films with the wildly popular Daddy or Mommy (2015) and its sequel, Divorce French Style (2016). With an original screenplay by Caroline Bongrand, Eiffel, his third feature, was the opening film at this year’s Angoulême French Film Festival. Bourboulon is currently in production on an ambitious two-part Alexandre Dumas adaptation —The Three Musketeers: Milady and The Three Musketeers: D’Artagnan.
