Dark Portals: The Chronicles of Vidocq is a 2001 film directed by Pitof and starring Gerard Depardieu. The character Vidocq is based on an actual person who lived in the late 1700s to mid-1800s. We listened to it in the English dubbing, which I think was a mistake. We enjoyed this little adventure.
Moria describes it as "an extravagant dark fantasy film from France" and says it "feels like the filmed equivalent of a graphic novel".
