撮要

At the height of Napoleon’s reign, Vidocq – who broke out of prison 27 times – is a legend. Left for dead after his latest escape, the ex-con is lying low as a modest cloth merchant.
When his past catches up with him, he is framed by former cellmates for a murder he didn’t commit. To prove his innocence and his good faith, he makes a deal with the police: In exchange for his freedom, he will hunt down all the thieves and murderers on the streets of Paris.
From convict to sheriff… Vidocq becomes, without intending to, the Emperor of Paris.

Jean-François Richet and Vincent Cassel team up again to tell the story of a fascinating character who inspired the greatest authors like Victor Hugo for Les Miserables.
Based on a true story, this very ambitious adventure movie gathers an international cast.
