Cinematical has just gotten this stunning, exclusive poster for Catherine Breillat's new film, The Last Mistress (click on image above to enlarge). I just absolutely adore pictures and posters that combine that grainy look with sharp, contrasting colors, and this one pulls it all off wonderfully. Based on the novel by Jules-Amédée Barbey d'Aurevilly, the film is another sexy and shocking taste of Breillat, director of Fat Girl and Anatomy of Hell, but this time, she goes back to the 19th century. Asia Argento stars as Vellini, a courtesan who has lust-filled and violent forays with Ryno (Fu'ad Aït Aattou) for years. But then he leaves her to marry Hermangarde (Roxane Mesquida), and she's not prepared to say goodbye.
If this slice of sexy is right up your alley, the film will open on June 27 at IFC Center & Lincoln Plaza Cinemas, and On Demand, before rolling out nationwide.
