Last Mistress, The (in French)

Rating = C-

I liked the period costumes and sets. Other than that (actually including that), the film was astonishingly static. Everything happens in slow slow motion. I don't know what point the writer/director was trying to make; perhaps she was just contrasting the wild woman and the staid woman. It did seem clear enough that writer/director Catherine Breillat was portraying the young man as not having any self control. The explicit sex scenes were the most geometric since “Lust, Caution.”
