Synopsis:
The Eiffel Tower was erected to last no longer than 20 years after the World Fair of 1889. But how was it actually built, who built it and how did it become the most popular and instantly recognisable building in the world? 1884. The workshops of the internationally renowned engineer Gustave Eiffel are bristling with anticipation. There is already talk of the 1889 World Fair and the grand celebrations to mark the centenary of the French Revolution. Eiffel plans to stand out once again as the representative of France. Then an idea comes from one of his partners.
They should turn their most recent bridge design skywards and built a vast tower that will take Europe, the US and the world by storm. By using the detailed day by day accounts left by the people who worked on construction, The True Legend Of The Eiffel Tower tells the fascinating story of the genius behind its creator, his vision and how this truly epic undertaking took shape and stunned the entire world. Shot in HD, this stunning docu-drama ingeniously blends archive footage, CGI, factual accounts and dramatic reconstructions to deliver a fascinating portrait of Gustave Eiffel and his monumental project to build the world's most visited landmark.

A disappointment - The True Legend of the Eiffel Tower review by DW

Spoiler Alert
25/07/2018

Informative in its way as it told me more about Eiffel than I'd known before but oh, how amateur a production it seemed, not helped by the dubbing from French to English. I had no idea that films were dubbed any longer but obviously they are. Nothing more to add, I'm afraid.

Dubbed! - The True Legend of the Eiffel Tower review by LH

So sad I didn’t read the other review. It’s dubbed with an American. I want to practise French. Interestingly I read the only place Lupin on Netflix had to be dubbed was America. Very sad.
