We've not seen it yet (working on it!) but Bertrand Bonello's (The Pornographer, On War) House Of Tolerance looks to be a very intriguing film indeed. Great news for Francophiles everywhere!

With a great female ensemble cast made primarily of up-and-coming French actresses Hafsia Herzi, Celine Sallette, Jasmine Trinca, Adele Haenel, Alice Barnole, Iliana Zabeth and Noemie Lvovsky, the exquisitely shot film tells the story of the last days of a French brothel at the dawn of the 20th Century. Apparently: In a closed world, where some men fall in love and others turn vicious, the girls form a strong bond, sharing their secrets, their fears, their joys and their pains.

House of Tolerance is released in the United Kingdom on 27 January 2012. One to watch.
