Paris in the 1820s. The young, idealistic poet Lucien comes to the great metropolis to pursue his writing dream and make a career as a writer. But when success fails and the money runs out, he is drawn into a world of unscrupulous journalism, where the aim is to sell scandals and crush rumors - no matter what the truth is, only the price is right. The award-winning film Lost illusions (Illusions perdues) is based on French writer Honoré de Balzac's novel, and premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2021.
