Hafsia Herzi, Celine Sallette. A turn-of-the-century brothel becomes an unlikely bastion of loyalty in this erotic feast about the uniquely intimate camaraderie that develops among the ladies of the luxurious French house L’Apollinde. Madam Marie-France provides a glamorous life for some of the most alluring and desirable women in Paris, but also treats them as virtual slaves. Among the employees are a cheerful girl with a regular adoring john, a regal beauty who disdains all the men fighting for her services, a long-legged stunner reaching the end of her career, and a sweet and trusting new girl who winds up in bed with a very rough customer. From Bertrand Bonello, the director of The Pornographer. In French with English subtitles. 2011/color/125 min/NR/widescreen.
