Selected for the official competition at Cannes 2011, House of Tolerance is directed by the award-winning Bertrand Bonello (The Pornographer and On War), and tells the story of the last days of a French brothel at the dawn of the 20th Century. 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.
