LE LIBERTIN is a period adaptation of Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt's play set in late 18th century France about the exploits of the 18th century philosopher and libertine Denis Diderot (Vincent Perez), who was the author of the first encyclopaedia. Diderot is visiting the chateau of the Baroness d'Holback (Josiane Balasko) with his family, where the encyclopaedia is being illegally printed because it has been banned by the Government and the Church. Despite being targeted by a cardinal (Michel Serrault) who is determined to stop him printing it, Diderot who's more interested in pleasure than his work, gets up to all sorts of antics especially when the playful society artist Madame Therbouche (Fanny Ardent) arrives at the chateau.
