Maison Close - Season 2 - Wallpaper

It's not Canal+'s most critically acclaimed series, but season 1 made it one of its most-watched original dramas : Maison Close is returning for a second season (8 episodes) in February, 27 months after the end of season 1.

This is a tribute to Eugène Delacroix's 1830 painting, "La Liberté guidant le peuple" (Liberty leading the people) :

Make love AND war, apparently. Here's the original, for you to compare :

There's a great play-on-words with bordel, which is a word with multiple meanings :

1 - it means "brothel" — therefore the tagline would mean "the brothel defies the order".
2 - it also means "mess" — thus the tagline could also mean "the mess defies the order" (works as well).
3 - it doesn't apply here given the sentence, but that word is also a 'light' subtitute for "fuck!" (= "putain !", which btw is a curse word but also a noun that means… "whore" *. We go full circle, it's all connected!).

* Nowadays, when refering to a lady of the night, most people don't say "putain", they would simply say "pute" (or "fille de joie" to keep it classy).

Season 2 premières on Monday, February 4 at 8:55pm on Canal+. It will be released on Blu-ray on March 1.

Remember that season 1 is available on DVD/Blu-ray with English subtitles and HBO is developing a English-speaking remake (also set in 1870 Paris). Here's a trailer for the first season :
