Paris, 1830. Former criminal, inventor, master of disguise, scientist, detective, and all around genius Vidocq (Gerard Depardieu) appears to have become a victim of his latest case. A young reporter, Etienne, follows the trail of clues Vidocq left behind him. The case began with the mysterious murder of two businessmen, Belmont and Veraldi, who died by the curious means of lightning striking their gunpowder dusted clothing.
As Etienne retraces Vidocq’s investigation, encountering Vidocq’s acquaintances like the lovely dancer Preah, he is taken into the brothels and seedy underworld of Paris. It is there that he begins to unravel the tale of high powered businessmen in a quest for eternal youth, and the cause behind the murders, a devilish figure of legend cloaked in black with a nightmarish mirror mask and seemingly supernatural powers known only as The Alchemist.
