Paris, France: 1860s. Whole neighborhoods reduced to ashes. By order of Emperor Napoleon III, Baron Haussman has set into motion a series of large-scale renovations that will alter the face of Paris, molding it into a 'modern city.' The reforms will erase generations of history - but in the tumult, one woman will take a stand. Rose Bazelet refuses to leave, taking refuge in her basement, where she passes the time by writing letters to her late husband.

What is the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer?
The Tomatometer measures the percentage of Approved Tomatometer Critics who recommend a certain movie --

A good review is denoted by a FRESH tomato.
