Instead, he finds himself swept into journalism, the influence and reach of which is booming with the help of the printing press, widely available of late.

Under the mentorship of cynical editor Étienne Lousteau (César winner Vincent Lacoste), Lucien agrees to write rave theater reviews for bribes, achieving material success at the expense of his conscience.
