Catherine Breillat cowrote the script to this French sex comedy with producer Léo L. Fuchs, and it was directed by Michel Boisrond. In it, Catherine (Jane Birkin) is a young Parisian prostitute who decides to incorporate herself after learning the ins and outs of big business from her clients.
MoonInTheGutter.blogspot.com has a great write-up for this film. You'll have to click the link to read the whole thing, but here are some excerpts, "None other than controversial director Catherine Breillat penned the original screenplay for this seemingly inconsequential Jane Birkin vehicle. Written in her early twenties when Breillat was right at the beginning of her career, the silly CATHERINE AND CO. does contain many of the themes that she would explore much more seriously in her later films such as the prostitution of oneself and women's position in modern society. I'm not trying to apply any serious meaning to the very daft CATHERINE AND CO. but Breillat's involvement in the film shouldn't be overlooked and it definitely shares some of the themes of her later works... CATHERINE AND CO. isn't a great film by any means but for the talent in front of and behind the camera it remains well worth searching down. It is currently unavailable on dvd but used copies of it on VHS can be found."
He's right about that, I'm afraid. There is no DVD of this film available in any region. There are however NTSC VHS tapes available in the US that were released from VidAmerica. Definitely disappointing, especially since MoonInTheGutter describes the tape as "an eye sore," but its prospects for a DVD release don't look too good, and at least we do get to see it in English.
So, I hope this blog has been helpful for you... I've learned a lot just putting it together. Like I said at the start of this post, there will be updates when new information comes about (hopefully an English Last Mistress DVD will gracing the pages of this blog rather soon, or an update on Blue Beard) - this will always be the best, most up-to-date source for information on Breillat DVDs - but until then, this is goodbye.
