"The Liar" is a farcical tale of a pathological liar named Dorante. The moment he arrives in Paris, this man's true identity becomes a moot point. Every word out of his mouth will be not just a lie but a whopper, except, perhaps, for his instant affection for a young lady, Clarice. Or is it her friend, Lucrece? Just whom he's truly fallen for gets tangled in a zany plot filled with mistaken identities, elaborate fabrications and furious misunderstandings.
