Everyone must pay, one way or another.
27 July 2012 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Everyone must pay, one way or another. This series is taking you to discover what lies beneath the curtains of a luxury brothel at the end of XIXth century Paris. Translation of french term "maison close" is brothel, ironically called Paradise, where men are trying to get in and women are trying to get out. Its the drama of the women caught in Paradise, with their schemes, problems, loves, fears, weakness and hopes. Everyone is trying to control the others through these weaknesses. The owner her girls, the girls their customers, the customers the owner. Beautiful music, decors and atmosphere complete the circle. If you're trying to watch something new, fresh and original, try this french series
