“House of Pleasures” is a French Film that was featured at both the Cannes Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival. This movie takes place in a brothel during 1899 and 1900. The story revolved around the Madeleine (Alice Barnole), her co-workers, and their clients. They attempt to show the audience what happens behind the scenes of a fictional brothel and what the ladies have to go through in their line of work. Everything looks glamorous to the clients, but the work conditions and standard of living are anything but spectacular even for this time period.
