Gerard, left behind by a woman who joined the feminist movement, raises his baby alone. He meets Valerie, a young caregiver who will become the last woman, and probably his greatest love. Ferreri’s first collaboration with French actor Gérard Depardieu tells the tale of a man who fears his own desire and makes a radical decision to reassure his partner. Among Ferreri’s most underrated films, The Last Woman is a bleak story of communication breakdown, a tragic romance brought to life by two of the most talented and beautiful actors of this era of European cinema, Ornella Muti and Depardieu. 35mm print from Cinecittà.
