Product Description

Product Description

From the director of Fatal Attraction comes "a steamy thriller" (People Magazine) about physical passion so intense, it consumes everything - and everyone - in its path. Edward and Connie Summer (Richard Gere, Diane Lane) have the perfect life: a happy marriage, an eight year old son, and a beautiful house in the suburbs. But when Connie's chance encounter with a handsome stranger (Olivier Martinez) erupts into a full-blown affair, desire becomes obsession, and the true price of betrayal takes a shattering toll. Pulsing with heart-pounding suspense and erotic thrills, Unfaithful is "sexy", stylish and seductive!" (Wireless Magazine)

Amazon.ca

If you ever need dramatic proof that adultery is inevitably destructive, look no further than Adrian Lyne’s Unfaithful. Drawing inspiration from Claude Chabrol’s 1969 film La Femme Infidèle, the director of Fatal Attraction is mining similar territory here, but this grownup thriller is more intimate than Lyne’s dead-bunny potboiler, probing more deeply into the rush of conflicting emotions provoked by infidelity. In what many critics praised as the role of her career, Diane Lane plays the instigator of emotional turmoil, a seemingly happy housewife and fundraiser who cheats on her devoted husband (Richard Gere, in a welcomed change of pace) when she casually encounters a seductive Frenchman (cliché alert!) played by Olivier Martinez. Allowing his actors to speak volumes without words, Lyne emphasizes silent tension over explicit thrills, creating a sexually charged thriller that remains riveting even as it turns partially predictable. "Someone always gets hurt," says one character in a pivotal scene, and Unfaithful fulfills that prophesy in a timeless tale of passion. --Jeff Shannon

In short - the beginning was strong. The characters were more or less believable. The affair was convincing. Diane Lane did give a strong performance. The chemistry between Diane Lane and Olivier Martinez was as erotic as it was unsettling. Never did it seem that the affair was glamourized; always shot as secretive and sleazy. The core message was obvious, infidelity is a bad thing. This was successfully portrayed in the first half of the film and showed potential for being a strong film. Why the film decided to take a strange left turn and stumble through stupidity and banality is beyond me. Everything worked well up until Gere met with Olivier. Heck, even their meeting was OK. But they had to take it one step further. And in that one second, it all fell apart. Not to mention all the ridiculous plot holes the size of watermelons. What could have been an interesting film about the pitfalls of infidelity turned into a morality lesson. That lesson being, if your spouse has an affair, just kill their lover, then forgive each other and live happily ever after.

Diane Lane's character represents the target audience for this film: a housewife with a good marriage who nevertheless perhaps feels that there's a little something missing in her marriage. Maybe she feels her husband takes her for granted, or she feels confined in her house and her role in life, etc. She fantasizes about what it would be like to be swept off her feet by a buff, younger man -- maybe even one with a foreign accent.
Of course the movie is unrealistic from beginning to end. First, few wife/mothers entering the early stages of middle age have Lane's body. Second, the odds of running into a French playboy are slim at best. Third, it's probably not going to end in murder, but will almost certainly end in disgrace, divorce, the loss of both family AND boyfriend.
So go ahead and fantasize, ladies, but if the movie convinces you not to act on the fantasy, it will have served some small purpose. And give me an honest answer: If you thought the French guy was sexy, didn't you also get the feeling, when Gere's character confronted him, that it was a meeting of a grownup and a boy?

Months before the award ceremonies that honoured 2002 began, there seemed to be an unspoken decision among the powers that be that the actress of the year would be Nicole Kidman for delivering what was essentially a supporting role in Stephen Daldry's brilliant film THE HOURS. A shame really. While Meryl Streep delivered what was arguably her finest work to date in the same film, the Actress of the year was undoubtedly Diane Lane for her honest, naked work in this perfectly realised melodrama. Adrian Lyne's best work always seems to spring forth when he examines women & their emotions. Sharing similarities with FATAL ATTRACTION in it's study of urban angst, the power of the film springs from a screenplay that doesn't justify Connie's(Diane Lane)behaviour. When we first meet her, it appears she has everything. A stable homelife, a handsome, loving husband & son. Literally crashing into a handsome bookdealer during a violent windstorm(aided by a very clever credit sequence..watch closely), Connie slowly but surely begins a hot, torrid affair. Unable to resist the temptation, watch her closely as she wrestles with herself(& with him). Her train trip home following her first sexual encounter is a wonder to behold. In flashback we are shown the encounter while Connie alternately laughs, cries, squirms & exalts as she rejoices in her own(almost new)sexuality. To watch her behaviour as she(& we)realizes how much her handsome new lover has set her free, the feeling is infectious. Ably supported by Richard Gere( a big year for this guy) & Olivier Martinez, Lyne delivers a film filled with honesty & warmth. More than just a fantastic central performance, for my money, this is one of the best films of 2002.

Lane plays a housewife who has an raunchy affair with a young french loser who supposedly makes her quiver in a way her husband doesn't. Her husband is a good provider, loving father and caring husband that worships the ground she walks on. So it doesn't make sense why she felt a need to have an affair. She displays guilt for her actions but she keeps cheating anyways... again... and again... and again with her french sex machine. All we know about the french guy is that he can read braille, has plenty of band aids in his apartment and loves to have sex. Eventually, her husband finds out and bops the french sex machine on the head with a snowglobe and hides his body. And voila, their marriage is saved and they live happily ever after looking over their shoulders for pending murder charges. A protagonist is the character that changes the most or learns the most in the story and an antagonist is the character that changes the least or refuses to learn. I felt like the story was all antagonists. None of the characters seemed to evolve by the end of the story. It is hard to relate and enjoy a story without any protagonists.

Unfaithful starring Diane Lane (Connie Summer), Richard Gere (Edward Summer) and Oliver Martinzez (Paul Martel) is an "erotic thriller" directed by Adrian Lynne, (Fatal Attraction).
From the first few moments of this film, Unfaithful had me hooked. The story is an old one, a woman who seems to have it all is drawn into a tumultous affair with a handsome and mysterious stranger but never have I seen the destructive nature of adultery put on screen before. It's like the 5th and 6th chapter of Proverbs were the basis for the screenplay here. It's a sad and tragic tale here and might serve as a warning to those whom are considering having an affair, simply don't! Run like the wind!!
Unfaithful is rated R for sex scenes, nudity and some foul language, (totally in context). I used my trusty fast forward button to get through the sex scenes, although they are necessary to this story I got the picture without having to watch it.
It's a really well written and superbly acted thriller, Diane Lane and Richard Gere do some of their best work here and Adrian Lynnes direction is great as well, you are really drawn in to this story and at times you almost feel like you can't breathe, the tension is high.
Brilliant film but use your fast forward button about 4 times!!
Thanks for reading.
