The Last Mistress
aka Une vieille maîtresse
First screened in October 2007
Director: Catherine Breillat. Cast: Asia Argento, Fu'ad Ait Aattou, Roxane Mesquida, Claude Sarraute, Yolande Moreau, Michael Lonsdale, Jean-Philippe Tesse, Sarah Pratt, Amira Casar, Anne Parillaud. Screenplay: Catherine Breillat (based on the novel by Jules-Amédée Barbey d'Aurevilly).
Twitter Capsule: Aattou brings little to the table but sterile beauty. Argento overdoes sexual hunger. Few pleasures. A letdown.
