Jean de la Fontaine, the challenge

Jean de La Fontaine, the challenge is a French film directed by Daniel Vigne , released in 2007 .

Synopsis

September 5, 1661 : Fouquet , the powerful minister of the king, is arrested by order of Jean-Baptiste Colbert ; the young Louis XIV becomes sole master of the kingdom. While the other artists rush to the service of the divine right monarch, only one of them rises to affirm his support for the deposed superintendent: the artist Jean de La Fontaine . Colbert swore to bend the rebel who places art above the king.

Null

Even in misery, La Fontaine will never give up his beliefs. He resists, amuses himself, observes, writes fables, murderous pamphlets against a despotic regime in full decadence.
