Synopsis

An elderly man from a middle-class family finds himself forced to pass the time with a new companion.

Comment

In Ultima donna there is a bath scene, where we feel that desire circulates between the elderly body and the young body of the home help. But above all we witness the love, and therefore the respect with which Tristan Aymon films this intimacy. The emotion comes perhaps from the fact that we witness at this precise moment something that is beyond words: this is called cinema. And it is sometimes rare in films.
