This is a remake of Claude Chabrols La Femme Infidèle (leave it to French to make a movie about sex, love and everything in between), and this theme can also be seen in newer movies like The Other Man. It is very delicate and touching, especially for the men population with their fragile ego situation. In the words of Homer Simpson: It is funny because it’s true, and in this case it is not funny at all. This movie is very deep and it deals with the classic bored wife crisis that almost every married women experiences. The important part is what do you do about it? Should you talk to your husband or perhaps a close friend?

Connie Sumner has a perfect life, a loving husband, great kid, but there is something missing. That joy of life, that peak in her flat-line life. Men call this midlife crisis. Her finds that peak in young artistic French guy by the name of Paul Martel. A chance encounter brings them together and creates a passionate affair, but the husband is starting to suspect. I hate those Paul Martels, just pure fucking hate and the reasons for that have nothing to do with cheating. It’s the cosmic lottery that they have won, with their smarts, looks and everything else in their lives. There I go, all judgmental and stuff, but this is a passionate movie. Unfaithful does not judge, it just paints the picture and leaves the conclusions to you. Enjoy.

Director: Adrian Lyne

Cast: Diane Lane, Richard Gere, Olivier Martinez, Michelle Monaghan, Chad Lowe

Fun Stuff: Brad Pitt and Ryan Phillippe were offered the role of Paul. However during pre-production, the producers decided that Paul be French rather than American, so Olivier Martinez received the part.
