Unfaithful [WS] [DVD] [2002]

Presented in anamorphic widescreen with English 5.1 Surround Sound, Unfaithful looks beautiful and sounds crisp and clear. Fox did a great job with all the extras on the disc, providing many more than were expected. The best of the list includes the deleted scene file, which contains an alternate ending to the much-griped-about theatrical version. All deleted scenes are available with or without director Adrian Lyne's commentary, which is very enlightening. Other extras include two screen-specific commentaries: one with Lyne and another with Diane Lane and co-star Olivier Martinez. The director's commentary is much better, as it sounds as if Lane and Martinez recorded their dull-as-dishwater chats in two separate recording studios in two separate time zones. Then there's the behind-the-scenes featurette called "An Affair to Remember." Inside, viewers are given a glimpse into everything from Lyne's love of French films to why Martinez got into show business. The cast interviews feature was surprisingly interesting and well-edited, and the excerpt from The Charlie Rose Show revealed yet another side of actors' lives as well as the history of this film. To round out the disc there is an editing featurette with Anne Coates, hard-to-read director's script notes, and trailers. All of these special features should be enjoyed after watching the entire film first, as Unfaithful does provide a wallop of a plot shift that promises to be ruined if the extras are viewed at the start.

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
