The Last Mistress
Controversial director Catherine Breillat (ROMANCE, FAT GIRL) delivers her most ambitious film yet with THE LAST MISTRESS. Adapted from the novel by Jules Barbey d'Aurevilly, the film is set in 19th-century France, when the world was a seemingly much more innocent place. Underneath the surface, however, lurk infidelities and other dark secrets. Ryno de Marigny (Fu'ad Ait Aattou) is about to marry the beautiful and sweet Hermangarde (Roxane Mesquida). He is so devoted to her that he has decided to make a clean break from his ongoing affair with the tempestuous Vellini (Asia Argento). One day, Hermangarde's grandmother, the Comtesse d'Artelles (Yolande Moreau), convinces Ryno to tell of his affair with Vellini, which he does. By the end of his story, even she is concerned that he is in too deep with Vellini and that the couple's torrid romance will continue. Nonetheless, Ryno and Hermangarde get married, but Vellini's lure proves too strong a temptation. Breillat's biggest production to date also feels like one of her most personal. While the film has a sedate faade, it is in keeping with the graphic work of her previous films. Argento is a perfect Vellini, at once carnal and terrifying but also sensual and alluring. The striking Ait Aattou, who makes his first screen appears, confirms Breillat's gift of getting the most out of non-actors. THE LAST MISTRESS is a lush period piece that nonetheless has a universal, modern message, and it makes many daring statements about love, lust, and romance.
