Une vieille maîtresse

Catherine Breillat France, 2007

EdieEmm's rating of the film The Last Mistress

Frankly, the only reason I didn't turn it off at first was that I've committed to watching a quota of films directed by women. After that, it was because of the grandmother, who was a delight. After that, it was resignation, time invested, comfort on couch, etc. Felt like a film going through the motions. Halfhearted. No surplus energy with which to compel. 2.5
