The Last Mistress

Catherine Breillat (Fat Girl) adapts Jules Barbey d'Aurevilly's scandalously explicit 19th-century novel. Set during the reign of "citizen king" Louis Philippe, it maps the betrothal of aristocratic Ryno de Marigny (newcomer Fu'ad Ait Aattou) to the virginal Hermangarde (Roxane Mesquida). Waiting in the wings, and firing the imaginations of the era's gossip hounds, is de Marigny's tempestuous, longtime lover La Vellini (Asia Argento in a feral performance). In French with English subtitles. 114 minutes
