The Belly of Paris

Capturing the atmosphere, sights and smells of mid-19th century Paris, Emile Zola’s The Belly of Paris sees the political prisoner Florent return to the French capital after escaping the notorious penal colony of Devil’s Island. But the Paris he returns too has changed beyond recognition and repulsed by the divide between rich and poor, he begins to think of revolution.
