Trivia

The scene where Connie rides the train home after her first sexual encounter with Paul, and silently remembers the encounter, was filmed in one continuous take. The camera simply stayed on Diane Lane as she went through a series of expressions, and then the scene was cut and edited together. See more »

Goofs

When Connie is in Paul's bathroom to clean and bandage her knee, there are no items in the bottom shelf when she opens the medicine cabinet. But the next shot of her looking in the medicine cabinet shows several items on the bottom shelf. See more »

Quotes

Paul: We take Medicard...
Constance: I'm uninsured.
Paul: I'm sorry, we don't take charity cases here.
[closes the door, and then opens it again]
Paul: [laughing] It was a joke.

Drama as Art...
3 February 2004 | by (Dallas, Tx) – See all my reviews

I have read alot of reviews here that expressed displeasure for this film based on the notion that this was basically "softcore porn for housewives" and had nothing new to offer it's audience. Ok, granted; this is not the most original film/script ever written, but I think that many reviews (both Professional and Ametuer alike) have missed the point of this film. Behind the obvious guise of a morality tale showing what can happen if you stray from your marital vows, there is a rather amazing piece of art to be seen. This film is not about marital infedelity, but, rather, about DRAMA. This is what we in the Theater refer to as Drama As Art, meaning that the plot is less important than the impact that the various plot points have on the characters, creating more and more and more drama as the story unfolds. As is the great ballets or stage plays ('Giselle', 'Whose Afraid of Virginia Wolf', 'Swan Lake' 'A Streetcar Name Desire'), the DRAMA is the star of the production, not the actors or the plot lines.

And in this respect, 'Unfaithful' excells! Watch carfully as the world slowly turns itself upside down and rips itself to shreds around these two people based on a SINGLE MOMENT IN TIME (the first scene outside of his apartment: Should she go in? Should she go home? One choice, one mopment in time, a world of difference). Based on her choice(s), the drama begins to build to a point when, at the end of the film, the DRAMA is the star, not Geer and Lane. And Drama does a fine job holding this otherwise middle-of-the-road film above the frey.
