Plot Summary: "The Last Mistress" marks the monumental pairing of cinema's premiere provocateur, director Catherine Breillat ("Romance," "Fat Girl") with the most fearless and explosive actor of our generation, Asia Argento ("Marie Antionette," "Boarding Gate"). A penniless rogue, Ryno de Marigny (newcomer Fu-ad Aît Aattou), shocks 19th century France with his engagement to the virginal gem of the aristocracy, Hermangarde (Roxane Mesquida of "Fat Girl"). As lurid speculations of Ryno's ten year affair with the carnal Vellini (Argento) manifest, a supremely erotic and wickedly humorous depiction of human lust is revealed - overriding the brittle facade of nobility and reverence. Bolstered by Breillat's mastery of the medium and Argento's commanding performance, "The Last Mistress" is a highly entertaining yet incredibly provocative film that has resulted in unanimous praise from audiences and critics across the world.
