"The Last Mistress"

La Amo "Asia" Aria Anna Maria Vittoria Rossa Argento

Via Sundance Channel:

French filmmaker Catherine Breillat (ROMANCE; FAT GIRL) is famous for her uncompromising features examining varied forms of human sexuality and eroticism. In her most accessible film, Breillat parts 19th century bedchamber doors to tell a story about a sexually insatiable courtesan (Asia Argento) and her longtime lover, a penniless young rake (Fu'ad Ait Aattou) who tries to end their affair when he marries a young, wealthy aristocrat. A sumptuous and passionate period piece examining the anarchy of desire. "Like an erotic dream" -- Salon.
