Une vieille maîtresse, by Catherine Breillat (104’)

Ryno de Marigny, before getting married to the young and innocent Hermangarde, makes a last visit to La Vellini, his Spanish mistress, to bid goodbye in an act of lovemaking. After the marriage, the newlyweds move away to a castle at the seashore. They are happy and soon Hermangarde conceives. But the “mistress” reappears, and while Ryno tries to keep her out of his life, she is not to be rejected, and his wife finds out about it.
