The House Of Pleasures depicts a highly cinematic and atmospheric look at the final days of a turn of the century brothel when much of the Parisian sex trade was confined to grand maisons, populated by elegant madams and vetted clientele and Xavier Beauvois.
Within L'Apollonide's walls, Bonello tracks the lives of the Madam and close to a dozen girls among them: Madeline who is horribly disfigured by a client and becomes known as "the woman who laughs," Clotilde the veteran who longs to be a "respectable woman" and Pauline, the newcomer whose eyes are quickly opened to reality.
The House of Pleasures movie is directed by Bertrand Bonello. The film stars Hafsia Herzi, Céline Sallette, Alice Barnole, Adèle Haenel, Jasmine Trince, Iliana Zabeth and Noémie Lvovsky.
