It is the Quatorze Juillet, the day France celebrates Bastille Day with a military parade on the Champs Elysees, fireworks over la Seine and bals populaires in each arrondissements fire station. So tonight we thought we’d show you how the most iconic symbol for Paris, la tour Eiffel, was built…

The Eiffel Tower has been visited by more than 300 million tourists and is as indispensable an element in the establishing shot of any Parisian story as someone carrying a baguette home for dinner or bal-musette music on the soundtrack. – Robert Ebert. com


Eiffel (2022) Martin Bourboulon featuring Romain Duris

(In French with English Subtitles, 1hr 48 min)

Having just finished the Statue of Liberty, French engineer Gustave Eiffel (Romain Duris) is at the peak of his career. Pressured by the French government to design something spectacular for the 1889 Paris World Fair, Eiffel simply wants to design the subway, but everything changes the day he crosses paths with a woman from his past love (Emma Mackey), including the Paris' skyline… forever.
