Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

Although the premise of infidelity and its devastating consequences on all involved may not be a new one, Unfaithful still manages to emerge as a stylish, involving thriller. Based on an obscure 1970s French offering, director Adrian Lynne's version is pure Hollywood, from its casting of Richard Gere and Diane Lane in the lead roles, to its graceful visual style and even its somewhat unsatisfactory denouement. It's impossible not to watch the film without thinking of Lynne's own Fatal Attraction, although here the gender roles have been reversed to focus on the affair between bored suburban housewife Connie and exotic French book dealer Paul. The obsessive relationship between the two provides the film with its only real frisson. Gere is given very little to work with as the dull cuckolded husband Edward and delivers even less. The film moves rather slowly towards its key plot twist which never really lives up to its promise.

On the DVD: Unfaithful may be lacking a little as a film, but this DVD is an impressive package. The film has a rich visual element and the digital picture quality brings out the best in Adrian Lynne's unique eye for detail. The reams of extras include commentaries from director Lynne and the cast, a well put together documentary, interviews, features, deleted scenes and a (superior) alternative ending. Lynne is always good interview value, coming across as a slightly less eccentric Ken Russell, and Lane and Olivier Martinez are both engaging and charismatic. A shame, then, that the movie itself isn't quite so impressive. --Phil Udell

Product Description

Richard Gere and Diane Lane star in this erotic thriller from director Adrian Lyne. On a trip into Manhattan during a thunderstorm, spoilt housewife, Connie (Lane) is unable to get a cab home and bumps into a handsome Frenchman, Paul (Olivier Martinez), who invites her to his apartment to bandage the cut knee she has. Whilst there he flirts and gives Connie a book of Persian poetry when she leaves. Connie cannot get Paul out of her mind and on another trip into Manhattan contacts him and the pair begin a very passionate and obsessive affair. However, Connie's husband Edward (Gere) becomes suspicious of his wife's behaviour and hires a private detective who confirms the worst; but when Edward confronts Paul things don't go according to plan.

Wow, I knew Diane Lane could act, but this movie really sealed it for me. She MADE this movie. "Unfaithful" is a really well-done movie about a suburban housewife who finds herself having an affair with a younger man. This action has a devastating reaction that will reverberate forever. Although the theme is really nothing new, Lane's superb acting truly conveys her character's mixed emotions - embarrassment, excitement, shame, giddiness. The gamut of emotions that runs across her face on her subway ride home after her first tryst with her lover pretty much tells the whole story of how this woman feels about what she's doing. It's an unforgettable scene and an unforgettable piece of acting that will be a classic. Without Lane, this movie would have been very, very good. With Lane, it was elevated to a whole new level. Diane Lane thoroughly deserved her Oscar nomination for this performance; she deserved to win it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy, seductive, smashing. 8 Mar 2010
Format:DVD
A wonderful film. The chemistry between the "settled" housrwife and her Parisian lover is absolutely mindblowing and intensely sexual and erotic. Her flashbacks and mixed emotions portrayed on the train home after her initial romp make for compelling and interesting viewing and display a real insight into the human psyche on the part of the director. One can see how she was sucked into a situation which she, arguably, has no control of. The unusual convention of a sharek secret and a resolution to remain together on the part of the married couple was different, thought-prvoking and insightful. A must see movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and disturbing 30 April 2003
Format:DVD
UNFAITHFUL is a movie that needs to be seen for a person to understand how it towers above and achieves everything that the four I just mentioned tried to do (or should have). The best double feature I could think of would be pairing this with AMERICAN BEAUTY; UNFAITHFUL could easily be seen as a sublime lesson in what the suburbs can do to the soul, and how it as such can be more dangerous to the soul than the ghetto's crime rate can be to the body and mind. *Boredom* seems to be the only motivating force leading to the eventual destruction of their entire lives in this movie--a woman's boredom. And yet what makes this film so powerful (other than, again, the triple-Oscar winning performance of Diane Lane) is the fact that it is so well written and masterfuly directed--not to mention achieves ensemble with its supporting cast of men and women--that a clear cut motivation really does not exist. Glen Close was just crazy; Michael Douglas was just selfish; Jeremy Irons was just strung up too tight and a profoundly manipulative woman snapped him; Wesley Snipes (according to Spike) just had to have some White-ness; Thandie Newton was heartbroken...everyone had a clear cut motivation for their actions (otherwise known as the megaphone for the director in question's ideas about life [or the marketplace]), except Diane Lane in UNFAITHFUL. And that is what will really disturb you to the point of needing to take a couple days out and digest the lesson on human nature you have been given by the time the credits role.
If you are a Richard Gere fan, you will be surprised over the fact that, as good an actor as he is and can be, he triumphs in this movie almost purely by staying out of Dianel Lane's artistic way! He deserves a *most generous supporting actor* Oscar. My girlfriend's life was changed by what she saw in this movie (it deeply frightened and overwhelmed her); and I think mine was too. If you are in love or married, see this movie at your own risk. But see it.

By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
For me "Unfaithful" presented some interesting considerations simply on the basis of the casting of the principle actors in the Sumner family. This is Diane Lane, whom I had a big time crush on when her first film "A Little Romance" came out in 1979, as the wife; Richard Gere, the sexy star of "American Gigolo" and "Pretty Woman," as the husband; and Erik Per Sullivan, Dewey on "Malcolm in the Middle," as the child. Consequently, "Unfaithful" tells the story of a wife who has a steamy affair, played by the only child star I ever had a crush on, who thereby cheats on her husband, one of the sexiest stars in the movies, while their child, one of the cutest and funniest little kids ever to be on television, watches and wonders what is going on.
In all these personal ruminations the Gere movie persona actually plays into the effectiveness of the film, because we are never really sure why Connie Sumner has an affair. More to the point, we are not sure why she, or any woman, would cheat on Richard Gere (Edmund Sumner). The film's suggestion is that Connie is caught up in strong natural forces, symbolized by the extremely strong winds that literally blow her into the arms of another man, Paul Martel (Olivier Martinez). But ultimately what is important here are not the causes, but the results as both straying wife and desperate husband go too far.
"Unfaithful" is based on Claude Chabrol's film "La Femme Infidele," and "based" is indeed the operative world (although the story goes back in great literature to "Madame Bovary"). Although I have not seen the original, it is clear from the director's commentary and other mentions of the French film that there are significant differences between the two, both in terms of what is shown regarding the affair (more) and where the story ends (later).
