“Madame Claude” is a 2021 Netflix original movie
It is set in Paris, in the late 1960s.
She is at the head of a flourishing business dedicated to prostitution that gives her power over both the French political and criminal worlds.
But the end of her empire is closer than she thinks.
Madame Claude (Karole Rocher) runs an exclusive brothel that caters to politicians, entertainers, and other rich and powerful people (including Marlon Brando and John F. Kennedy). She’s a fierce businesswoman, a mother figure, a myth to many, and a government informant. She keeps busy (to say the least), but things are never as simple as they seem on the surface.
About 200 young women work under her watchful eye, and 30% of the cut goes to her – which seems to keep everyone happy. When clever young Sidonie (Garance Marillier) begins working for Madame Claude, it’s only a matter of time until she proves herself worthy of being her right-hand woman – and the two continue to take the business to new places, perhaps beyond what Madame Claude ever had in mind.
