Two of cinema's most thrilling and dynamic female talents - the provocative Asia Argento and the controversial director Catherine Breillat - join forces in this audacious and sexually-charged tale of lust and seduction. Argento gives an electrifying performance as Vellini, the beautiful and headstrong mistress of Ryno de Marigny (Fu'ad Aït Aattou), an aristocrat who has just taken the young and innocent Hermangarde (Roxane Mesquida) as his bride. Lacking the emotional connection and carna passion in his marriage that he shared with Vellini, Ryno attempts to resist temptation bu eventually succumbs to desire, rekindling the illicit affair with tragic consequences
Argento exudes a heady mix of eroticism and power... Irresistible passion --Film4.com

The long dialogue between Ryno de Marigny (Fu'ad Ait Aattou) - a first role for an extraordinary androgynous looking boyish actor - and his future wife's grandmother the Comtesse d'Artelles is highly evocative of Proust, as are the friendships between the Comtesse and Madame de Solcy (Anne Parillaud) and the Viscomte de Prony (Michael Lonsdale).
Rynos's tormented long standing destructive affair with Vellini (Asia Argento) provides the erotic element, and Argento is outstanding in her role.
The action could do with a little bit more show (but certainly not on the erotic front) and less tell, but this is probably due to the original novel from which it derives.
The costumes are sumptuous and are superbly filmed with exceptionally clear mainly shadow free front lighting, a visual pleasure.
For all fans of the director Catherine Briellat (her 2001 film Brief Crossing is one of my favourites) and of highly charged historical romances.
