PR Maison Close: Season 1 on DVD, Blu-ray & VOD Jan 27

Maison Close: S

Unfolding like a serialized 19th century French naturalist novel, this uncompromising series follows a cast of gorgeous women trapped by circumstances beyond their control in the luxury brothel 'Paradise'. Considered a first class closed house reserved for aristocratic or bourgeois clientele and noted for strange and refined practices during a time when prostitution was legalized, Paradise is populated by a fascinating cast of characters, each of whom struggles to find escape and solace in their own way.

PR Favorites Of The Moon: 30th Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray & DVD Aug 12

Favorites Of Th

The story revolves around two objects, a rare set of 18th-century Limoges china, and a 19th century aristocratic portrait. As these items are passed, sold, or stolen from one character to another, a giddy round dance of excess begins to take shape, one which suggests that if history doesn't repeat itself, it certainly rhymes. Co-writer Gerard Brach and director Otar Iosseliani uses a feather-light touch to expose the futility of class and social order, making a bagatelle of the concerns of rich and poor alike.
