2007. France/Italy. Dir: Catherine Breillat. With Asia Argento, Fu’ad Aït Aattou. 104 min.
Director Breillat recreates the glamour of 19th Century Paris to frame a steamy story of sexual obsession. Swashbuckling Ryno leaves his lover of ten years to marry a virginal daughter of aristocracy. But is his passion dead, or will his last mistress come back to haunt him? Presented as part of The Tournées Festival.
The Tournées Festival was made possible with the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the French Ministry of Culture (CNC).
