"Gives arthouse a good name." Variety
Selected for official competition in Cannes 2007, a gripping period piece from Catherine Breillat. We're in Paris, 1835, and the Marquess of Fleurs chooses the romantic but philandering Ryno de Marigny to marry her innocent young daughter. But Ryno must first disentangle himself from a 10-year affair with the devilishly seductive Vellini (played by Asia Argento). In partnership with the Institut Français.
Dir Catherine Breillat, France/Italy 2006, 104 mins, subtitles, Cert 18
