Anne, a brilliant lawyer, lives in perfect harmony with her husband Pierre and their six and eight‑year-old daughters, in a house on the heights of Paris.

Anne is troubled by Theo and gradually engages in a passionate relationship with him, putting her career and family life in danger.

Last Summer

Catherine Breillat

Catherine Breillat is a French director, screenwriter, and novelist. In 1972, she acted alongside her older sister, actress Marie-Hélène Breillat, in Bernardo Bertolucci's Last Tango in Paris. In the mid-1970s, during the wave of "X" and erotic cinema, a producer offered her the opportunity to direct a film based on her book Le soupirail. The film, A Real Young Girl, which contains pornographic scenes, was not released until 2000 as its original producer went bankrupt. After a second film, Night After Night, she paused her directing career to write screenplays for others, notably for Federico Fellini and Maurice Pialat. She returned to directing with 36 Fillette, also adapted from one of her novels, and Dirty Like an Angel. Already appreciated by critics, she finally gained public recognition with the success of Perfect Love in 1996, followed by Romance in 1999. In 2007, she directed The Last Mistress, which was selected for the official competition at the Cannes Film Festival. In 2023, she was once again selected with the film Last Summer.
