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 :

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
