What’s so capturing in the movie depicting a Parisian brothel in the 20th century? Still it keeps you enchanted with beautiful dresses, music, and luxury blended in a place of fear, hope, love and hatred. It’s like a different world sharing the border with war and bustle.
This story is also about colonialism, but it’s turning the lives of the characters upside down. A white French girl used to live from hand to mouth before she met an attractive and rich Chinese man.
