    • Synopsis
    • At the end of the '60s, Madame Claude reigns over Paris and beyond, thanks to her thriving business. By reinventing the codes of prostitution, adopting an upper middle-class demeanor and inventing a respectable background, she is a successful business woman, respected in political circles as well as by the criminal underworld. Madame Claude is a powerful woman living in an environment and an age dominated by men, on the eve of the Women’s Lib movement. Then she meets Sidonie, her opposite, but also her alter ego - an encounter that will lead to the collapse of her empire.
