The film is excellent and Diane is seductive, sexy and downright awesome as the films main focus. Because this is a stunner that will put both back on the map - big time. When she bumps into him, she falls down and scrapes her knee. I've always liked Lane as an actress from when she was a kid in Francis Ford Coppola films, but she rarely got the chance to 'carry' a film. As a movie critic said, this movie will indeed make you never have an affair! All of these expressions flashing through in a matter of seconds all in one shot!. She helps her son get ready for school and also makes sure that the husband is ready for work. A scene that was shot only once and Lane's expressions changes from giddy, guilty, shameful, embarrassed, and excited as she cries and laughs and giggles.
She proves here what many believed before. In the third encounter, Paul and Connie have sex and it is the beginning of a tumultuous affair that will set a chain reaction of guilt, jealousy, obsession, heartbreak, and murder. Connie was not looking for an affair and her relationship with Paul was the result of an accident. Unfaithful really plays itself out as a human story about lust and the consequences but it doesn't preach. Lane doesn't make us hate her character but at the same time doesn't really allow us to condone Connie's actions.
We see the slow fall the family begins to take and we are even touched at the little child's innocence and how he never ever picks up the signals that his parent's marriage is breaking apart. The movie did okay at the box office and was known to be a decent movie. The private investigator tells him that she has been seeing another man and this devastates Edward. Edward frantically cleans up the apartment and takes the body out. Edward snaps and hits Paul in the head with the glass ball and kills him. The classic Lane moment was the scene with her on the train on her way home after her first sexual encounter with Paul.
Unfaithful was an extremely powerful movie and was much, much more than what i had expected when i rented the dvd. The summary of this movie is that Diane Lane's character starts cheating on her husband Richard Gere with a beautiful French man Olivier Martinez. And of course there is Diane Lane: she was beautiful at 13 and she is beautiful today. Everything else should be left for surprise. At first you see a housewife named Connie who is helping her husband Edward and son Charlie get ready for their day. This is not an art-film, but it is not a blockbuster either. First off, I was quite surprised to see the cinema so full for this movie, even on opening weekend.
For all their star power though, it is the female star Diane Lane who must take huge credit for making this such an effective movie. They also contemplate leaving the country. Whoever thought that director Adrian Lyne and star Richard Gere were finished needs to see this haunting and provocative film. It's message is that no one is perfect and everyone is only human and we respond to the basic human desires and needs but there is always a consequence for every decision or impulse made. The scene where she finds the pictures of her and her lover taken by the private detective; How she looks through them and waves of nausea, embarrassment, guilt, and absolute regret. He was simply fulfilling his own desires and hers and it aroused him, but his desires in the end made him the victim of a tragedy that didn't need to happen.
Unfaithful 2002 Full Movie with subtitles. I love how Adrian Lyne very much like he did in Fatal Attraction adds the human drama of the family breaking apart because of an infidelity. One choice, one mopment in time, a world of difference. Even Olivier Martinez plays his role effectively. And of course Edward inevitably finds out.
We got a sense of Connie and Edward's home life before she met the dashing Paul. On the way home she gets caught in a windstorm and accidently bumps into a guy who is carrying books. And in this respect, 'Unfaithful' excells! He didn't fall in love with Connie and he wasn't searching for anyone. Adrian Lyne is fascinated by human sexuality and he presents it in a way that is adult but without being pornographic. On her way out he gives her a book with his phone number. He never even asks his wife if she is cheating but hires a private detective.
Connie is immediately attracted and fascinated by the handsome stranger, but nothing happens and she goes home but she cannot stop thinking about Paul. At the end of this movie I didn't feel cheated or robbed with some contrived ending although others may argue differently. I was totally glued to my seat from start to finish. The movie is about a married woman who runs into a male stranger and begins to have an affair with him. She did it out of impulse, out of lust, and for the pure excitement of how far she could take it until she realizes the effect it begins to have on her: she begins to obsess over Paul, she is hurting the man she truly loves, Edward, and she begins to see the toll it takes on her as a mother.
