If I used too much caps lock will not be enough to express the themes of this story lack of orinality, almost I dare to say mediocre. Who don't be afraid to make an story full of expositive dialogues, shallow character devolopment and an soulless direction, an very disappointing picture with an banal and cliché resolution.unfaithful could be an good film, if not commited the crime to be so,so unoriginal to be look like...Is more an Lasse Halstrom picture than some Andrew Layne movie.Avoid!
Chalk this one up as a surprisingly tender film, one that eschews all potboiler cliches for the sake of character nuances and an intelligent, thoughtful script.
Diane Lane turns in an incredible performance, easily her very best so far, as a reasonably happy wife and mother who decides to have an affair with a hunky Frenchman, simply because…well….it’s just something she needs to do. She conveys just the right emotions as a woman going through something at turns rewarding, dangerous, daring and thrilling.
However, refreshingly, the film is not about the affair itself, but the actual marriage (with a terrific Richard Gere) and its fractured, shaky state. They are an ideal couple, normal in just about every sense, dealing with extreme obstacles.
This is Adrian Lyne’s best film.
Going in I was like "I have no idea what this about!" but since I'd read the title and seen at least one movie before, it turns I already knew the entire plot. This thing is straightforward to a fault and a little too classy to be enjoyably sleazy, although I'd be lying if I didn't say "mmm Olivier Martinez." Some sexy sex scenes—what would an Adrian Lyne movie be without them?—but Hitchcockian this ain't.
The content on display in this film had to read like pure, trashy Lifetime Original material on paper, but under Adrian Lyne's guidance and borderline-exceptional performances from both Diane Lane and Richard Gere, Unfaithful rises above several could-have-been-disastrous pitfalls.
When I first saw this movie a little over ten years ago, I was just as stunned as everyone else to witness the raw intensity of Lane's surprising portrayal of a woman who gives into sexual desires with a young stranger she meets in the street by chance. Even after all these years and a couple of viewings later, I'm still rather amazed that she decided to spontaneously push the boundaries of an otherwise risk-free resume...and it resulted in what is…
In 1987, Adrian Lyne brought us Fatal Attraction, an sensually charged cautionary tale to any man thinking of flirting with disaster in the form of the attractive blonde he meets by chance. He practically invented the modern erotic thriller with that work of genius and fifteen years later he released Unfaithful, yet another domestic story of a married adult straying, except this time it's the woman who ends up in the bed of an attractive stranger.
Since Attraction there have been a myriad of attempts to recapture the combination of thrills, suspense and eroticism that Lyne was able to achieve but, with the rare exception, they failed to bring out the urgency and seriousness of his tone and instead fell…
A fairly good film that I feel struggled with being great because of the last act. The film never feels to be to long but when it shifts to their marriage in the last thirty minutes, it feels too strained and to long because we all know that there will be some difficulties with what has happened but it is stretched to a point and then it is all better. Diane and Richard seem like a true flesh and blood couple and you can tell that they love each other but one just wants something more and new in her life. Most of the time, it is always the male who is a cheater but in this one, it is the female. A very solid film.
My review -- this film is now on DVD and yes it does have a sizable profit margin. The contents is as follows we meet this married couple as they have been married for some years now, but it is fair to say on both sides they have been neglecting the fundamental aspects to any wholesome marriage just for an example just sitting around taking any interest in whatever the other one is saying or simply put romantic/sexual intercourse. So it is fair to assume based on the title that one of these characters is going to find other avenues to romantically feel alive. To be completely honest I'm not sure if I like this film project will not be…
Slow-burning erotic drama that doesn't really go anywhere deep or meaningful. Ah, middle-class America... even your sexual fantasies are vanilla flavoured. Good for late night titillation and not much else.
Fuck the Soho windstorm of 2002. Also: sexual women ruin EVERYTHING! [D+]
I like Diane Lane a lot, so I wanted to like "Unfaithful." I really did. But nothing, short of Richard Gere's reaction to the affair, makes the slightest bit of sense. I can't connect with a fictional world where a woman with a perfect life, including good kids and a great husband she loves, becomes so bored that a wisp of wind is enough to drive her into a destructive affair. And once you reject Adrian Lyne's hatred of marriage, humorless mocking of suburban and misogynistic attitude (Lane's character is incapable of thinking, appreciating her perfect life or controlling her instinctive lust because, well, she's a woman), there's nothing left but a bunch of attractive people behaving stupidly.
A surprisingly catchy film which i realised i have seen before. The suspense kicks of almost from the beginning and does really not let go until the very end. Though this is probably one of Richard Gere's better performances, Diane Lane gives a great performance and is basically the highlight of the film..
Nothing like I thought it would be. With the director being Adrian Lyne, and the topic (again) being infidelity, I was expecting Fatal Attraction 2. Instead it is quite an insightful film that examines what marriage means. Really liked the ending...
Ready to dismiss it initially, but Diane Lane kept your interest and the film rolled along....
Much superior to Adrian Lyne's more famous but, in my opinion, somewhat uneven thriller dealing with infidelity, 1987's Fatal Attraction, Unfaithful is a finely directed film that offers compelling drama and well crafted suspense. Richard Gere and Diane Lane delivered top-notch performances which enhanced the story's power.
