Synopsis


Unfaithful
Diane Lane is a wayward wife and Richard Gere is her suspicious husband in Adrian Lyne's Unfaithful. Connie (Lane) leaves her suburban home on an errand, venturing into Manhattan during a wicked windstorm. On a trash-strewn Soho street, she literally runs into Paul Martel (Olivier Martinez), a handsome young Frenchman carrying a huge stack of books. Connie has a bad scrape on her knee, and is unable to get a cab, so Paul invites her up to his apartment. Paul is quietly flirtatious as he gives Connie some ice and a bandage for her knee. Connie phones home and explains to her son, Charlie (Erik Per Sullivan), that she's running late. Before she leaves, Paul gives her a book of Persian poetry, The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. She mentions the encounter in passing to Edward (Gere), her husband, but it's clear that she's obsessing about Paul, and soon she's back in the city, with a pretext for calling him up. Soon, they are lovers, and they grow bolder and bolder in their passion. Edward begins to suspect, and eventually gets a private investigator (Dominic Chianese of The Sopranos) to follow Connie. His worst fears confirmed, Edward decides to confront Paul, a decision that will come to haunt him. While the screenplay for Unfaithful is credited to Alvin Sargent (Ordinary People) and William Broyles Jr. (Cast Away), the inspiration for Lyne's film came from Claude Chabrol's acclaimed 1969 film La Femme Infidele. ~ Josh Ralske, Rovi

    How it happens...

    Posted
    satanschild88

    To be married for many years and to find out that your spouse has not been faithful is one of the most devasting events a person can endure. In this film the character played by Diane Lane shows how innocently an afffair can start when by pure chance she she meets an exotic stranger on the street after falling and scraping her leg. The husband, played by Richard Gere, gradually figures it out with devasting consequences. The movie ultimately gives no clear cut answers why this happens but that's real life. And that's why I recommend this film.

    Diane Lane steals this movie. What a subtle, heart-wrenching performance. You see the conflict, the passion, the doubt, everything. She's one of the business's great underrated actors, but she shines in this. Richard Gere reliably pulls off the role of her husband, and Olivier Martinez is entirely gorgeous and credible as the lover she can't resist. This is more than a "chick flick." It's a deep dive into human frailty, with a great cast and director.

    In any mystery, in order to accept the plot, you have to believe the motive. This one is stretched a little beyond believability. But overall, the acting is great by Gere and Lane and it does manage to keep you interested despite the weak motive.

    Arian lyne(fatal attraction, 9 1/2 weeks, Lolita) comes up with another fine movie with a twist. Diane Lane & Richard Gere team up for first time since the cotton club.

    I remember seeing this movie many, many years ago and I remembered that it was pretty good. So, when I saw it on Blu-ray and for such a good price, I had to have it.
