Etienne Boisset. Journalist.

No drolers here.

I am not just a journalist.

I write about Vidocq.

I am his official biographer.

What is so funny?

He did not need anyone to write his

memoirs. If somebody writes something...

i am the first to know.

I am Nimier, his partner.

Do u understand?

Give me a moment, i will show u something.


Vidocq wrote me.

He was expecting me. I Swear it.

He was going to re-read it.


Don't u know it? Vidocq is dead.

Yes, exactly.

-Why, exactly?

What do u want?

-I want to fpinish my book.

I must find the murderer.

The murderer of Vidocq.

Poor fellow.

I must find his murderer.

Then its more than just an Biograpy.

It will be revenge. His revenge.


Go Away! Than i can forget you.

-Help me. Tell me what you know.

You were doing an investigation? Both of you?

Aren't you doing anything?

-Who killed him, is as good as dead!

I can help you.

Tell me what happened.

Then it'll become more clear.

Tell me how did it started.

It began one week ago,

with two rich people.

Belmont and Veraldi.

Thay is nonsence. It is not because they

were hit by lightning...

One men hit by lightning is an accident.

Two men hit by lightning is a plot.

Certainly if it are Belmont en Veraldi.

-Who are They?

Belmont was the most important

weapenmanufacturer of France.

Veraldi was a chemist.

He makes explosives of it.

So what?

It is an heavy battle for our army.

We cannot have a weak spot

now. Certainly not now.

What do you fear?

An attack from the Germans?

They put you on the Throne.

I fear an attack from the inside.

The reformations are not populair.

Not really.

-Paris is full of conspiricy.

Orleanisten, bonapartisten,


Even i do not know.

I don't do politics.

My people have their hands full.

That with the lightning, goes to far.

you have to investigate this.

You fired me.

Can't you remember?

No, it is not possible. Too much work.

Don't you understand?

The monarchy is threatened.

I expect a new attack

with the next lightning.

Pay. I will think about it.

Is ethic a strange thing for you?

You're hiding your talents.

Whose fault is that?

Do not forget it.

You have until the next lighting.

Napoleon made all clocks

melt to cannons.

There were never enough.

The workplaces where built

in churches. Like us.

This is a good place.

Very close to the Lord.

Yes, but not for long anymore.


What a question. Only Belmont

was aquainted with the secrets of irrigating.

Do you have an idea about his dead?

That is the big Theatre of life.

Belmont was successfull because of the fire.

He died because of the fire.

Youre boss never left without

his body-guards.

He did not only feared ghosts, he?

-Yes, he was afraid for a long time.

Did he do strange business?

A fairer person then him

didn't exist.

He had some bad things, the bourgeois...

but he deserves

that we make a toast on him.

Which bad things?

-Well, I will tell you.


What do you mean?

-He was like a painter, if you like.

But his paintings,

were himself.

Was he married?

-Yes. with his belly button.
