While this year's Cannes Film Festival is stacked with films already earning buzz well in advance of their trips to the south of France -- "Drive," "Melancholia," "We Need To Talk About Kevin," "The Skin I Live In," "This Must Be The Place," "The Tree Of Life" -- the real treat of the fest is always uncovering the movies that come a bit out of leftfield.

While this year's Cannes Film Festival is stacked with films already earning buzz well in advance of their trips to the south of France -- "Drive," "Melancholia," "We Need To Talk About Kevin," "The Skin I Live In," "This Must Be The Place," "The Tree Of Life" -- the real treat of the fest is always uncovering the movies that come a bit out of leftfield.

One contender is Betrand Bonello's "L’Apollonide" (aka "House Of Tolerance"). The arthouse filmmaker, perhaps best known for his 2001 film “The Pornographer” with Jean-Pierre Leaud, will once again explore sexuality with his film taking place in a brothel at the beginning of the 20th century. The plot goes into motion when the workers shut themselves off from the world after one of their own is horribly disfigured by a client. The teaser trailer for the film doesn't hint at the darkness but more or less drops us straight into the world -- and girls -- of the brothel. We're really digging the anachronistic use of Lee Moses' "Bad Girl" in the spot and we hope it's a sign of things to come.

The Cannes Film Festival kicks off on Wednesday. Check out the trailer below.
