Storyline

At 30, boyish penniless aristocrat Ryno de Marigny has separated from Villini, a passionate Spaniard and his mistress of 10 years. He's now in love with Hermangarde, a young, wealthy, and titled virgin. Days before the wedding, the bride's grandmother sits Ryno down and insists on knowing if his affair is over. He relates a story of passion, which we see in flashbacks, swearing he loves only Hermangarde. After the wedding, the couple moves to a castle by the sea. And Villini? Can passion survive disgust and self-loathing? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Catherine Breillat thought that Roxane Mesquida, who was in her twenties, was too old to be cast as a teenager. However, after viewing a retrospective of her own work, Breillat realized that Mesquida looked the same as she had as a teenager and gave her the role of Hermangarde. See more »

Engaging Story of Love and Obsession
30 May 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

"The Last Mistress" revolves around Ryno, an impoverished nobleman and his long relationship with Vellini, his mistress. From the very start they have destructive relationship which over the time has been converted to an amalgam of love and hate.

The subject of the movie is age old, but I never got bored. There are many unexpected twists and turns and keep the audience occupied. The sets, costumes , acting and everything else is top notch. Asia Argento has done a wonderful job. Her performance seems different from what she has done earlier but I think that is due mostly to what was demanded of her for the role.
