Director statement

“We wanted to emphasize the story’s modern elements and show the impact of new technologies. Our goal was to make a movie set in the past but which modern audiences can relate to, as though in the present. Thus, the excitement sparked by new inventions and ideas is palpable, as is the sensation that Paris is the center of the world.”
