Watch: Very NSFW Clip From 'Maison Close' Features May-December Lovemaking

The French aren’t afraid of a little nudity — so trust us, you don’t want to watch this strange new clip at work, which is NSFW from minute one.

Set in a Parisian brothel circa 1871, the preview shows (from a variety of angles) a young woman and her client, a decidedly older gentlemen who appears to be a General, making passionate love. We are then led into a bustling brothel teeming with guests and prostitutes. A young man is pulled into the fray by his father, who requires his son to “prove his manhood.” The reluctant boy is a poet, and more interested in looking at paintings on the wall than at the women themselves; but as one of the hookers assures them, “the girls love a poet.” 

Originally a drama on Canal Plus that premiered in 2010, in 2012 HBO picked up the remake rights to “Maison Close,” which follows three women attempting to free themselves from prostitution and stars Jemima West (“The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones”). As previously reported by Indiewire, “the series has been getting rave reviews that praise its political astuteness and bold eroticism.” 

Music Box Films has acquired all U.S. and Canadian rights to the two seasons of the drama series. Season 1 of the show will premiere in the US on DVD/BD and VOD February 10. Check out the sneak peek below:
