House of Tolerance, DVD


French drama portraying life in an upmarket Paris brothel at the beginning of the 20th century.

Champagne and opium oil the workings of the house, which is presided over by the sweet-natured Madame, Marie-France (Noémie Lvovsky), herself a former prostitute.

As the regulars come and go, each with his own particular set of sexual preferences and perversions, the ever-resourceful working women find ways to cope with the more dangerous aspects of their trade: one girl, Madeleine (Alice Barnole), is tied up and brutally disfigured by a regular client (Laurent Lacotte), while another is dying of syphilis.
