The Ideal Palace

A Feature film by Nils Tavernier

Produced by Fechner Films

Release in France : 16/01/2019


    South of France, 1879. Ferdinand Cheval is a reserved and quiet man. A rural mail carrier, he enjoys the loneliness of his 20 miles rounds, daydreaming about a world full of wonder and beauty he only glances through postcards and magazines. After the birth of Alice, his daughter, he has a revelation: building a castle to make her a princess. With no architectural background, driven by his love for Alice, the unconditional support of Philomene – his wife – and his vision.
