Something we had ALREADY seen before
For much of his career,director Adrian Lyne has clearly had sex on the brain,or thoughts of eroticial porno,turning out huff and puff features both good(the Oscar winning Fatal Attraction and the controversial Lolita)and bad(9 1/2 Weeks and Indecent Proposal,the latter firmly cemented as one of the worst films of its decade). Happily,Unfaithful rests more toward the upper end of the spectrum;based on a 1969 French film by Claude Chabrol(La Femme Infidele),the movie sports a continental demeanor that seems wholly appreciate,but as a whole we have seen this kind of adulterated behavior several times before. Diane Lane’s standout performance is what elevates the first half,which could be easily dismissed as a straight-to-cable soaper or straight-to-video softcore porno assembly. A well to do housewife seemingly content with her husband(Richard Gere,is one of his best works here and one of his finest performances since the latter part of the 80’s and early 90’s),her son (Erik Per Sullivan),and her home in a quaint New York(upscale Manhattan) suburb,unexpectedly enters into a torrid affair with a French book dealer(Oliver Martinez-who looks like something out of grocery store paperback novel and one of those daytime TV soap hunks). Lane’s complex portrayal of a woman caught between the borders of reason and risk is simply smashing,yet eventually she’s not required to carry the picture by herself,as the second half heads off in some interesting and unexpected directions that ultimately lead to the wonderful amibiguous final shot. Unfaithful works for viewers willing to put some thought into it that only works for those who want cheap thrills will probably be disappointed,but in all its a illusion of eternal bliss that will find this easily a satisfying picture.
Great cast; great direction ;great entertainment
Early in the film a violent wind storm in Manhattan (a stunning piece of cinema) brings Connie a New York suburban house wife in collision with Paul a book seller (Olivier Martinez) He notices her knee is bleeding so he invites her up to his nearby apartment so that he can dress the injury. Uncertain at first, she relents and climbs the stairs and enters his world of books. The conversation is general. The chemistry is simmering.
Diane Lane as Connie is certainly the winner in this film. She is able to portray a whole range of emotions, her excitement, her anticipation, her guilt and changing attitudes in a way that sweeps you along in the dramatic turn of events. Nervous at first in entering a stranger’s apartment, she quickly departs and returns home to her husband Edward (Richard Gere) and Charlie her young son.
It’s amazing how a single decision can change the course of one’s life. Connie makes frequent calls to the book seller, not to buy his books but to enjoy his exciting company. Olivier Martinez with his soft French accent and smoldering smile is a real charmer. What woman would not yield to such a man? Yet Connie knows full well she is cheating on her husband. The guilt is written all over her face. It is these mixed emotions that Diane Lane can so capably project.
The husband’s discovery of his wife’s affair with this young book seller explodes into violent drama. Subsequent scenes with police investigators have both the husband and wife telling lies to cover up their respective activities at the book seller’s.
I felt there were a few weak points in the plot. The wife seemed to me to forgive her husband’s violent crime too easily. Also the body wrapped in a floor rug seemed too small and too light and too easily carried.
Various reviewers argue about who was really responsible for the whole mess. I think without doubt Connie was fully to blame. She made the wrong decision in the first place. This is admirably confirmed in the later fantasy sequence where she says “No” to the book seller when he invites her in. Also the husband blamed the wife not the young Frenchman. However Connie’s wrong decision was followed by multiple visits to his apartment. Paul gave her what she wanted and she continued to be mesmerized by his ardent attention.
A worthy production not to be missed.
