The Last Mistress

The title that raised audiences' blood pressure at the Cannes, Toronto and New York Film Festivals, this smoldering adaptation of Jules Barbey d'Aurevilly's scandalous 19th-century novel from always-controversial Catherine Breillat (ROMANCE, FAT GIRL) stars Asia Argento "who, while there's a touch of anachronism in her punkish insolence, gives Vellini much the same swaggering, dangerous sexuality she brought to her Madame Du Barry in Sofia Coppola's MARIE ANTOINETTE." -Romney, Screen

"Ms. Breillat's explorations of desire and pleasure are so far from the antiseptic world of most screen depictions as to seem far out. In truth, she's just fearless, determined to show what others keep hidden -- the good, the bad, the tumescent, the fluid…What's explicit here is ravenous passion and the depiction of desire as a creating, destroying force that invades the very flesh." -Dargis, NY Times

"May have more erotic smolder than any film Catherine Breillat has made before." -O'Hehir, Salon
