Claude Eastman, is a composer and conductor. He is married to Daniella, who is half his age. While away on a trip he told his Italian driver, Giuseppe, to tell his friend Norman to keep an eye on her, or take care of her. But his english is not too good, so Norman thought he was saying that Claude wanted him to hire a private eye to keep tabs on her. Which he did. Claude tells him that it's ok but the man Norman hired gives him his report and it says something happened while he was away. Claude, of course, tells him to throw it away but after Norman leaves, Claude tries to retrieve it and tries to read it but Daniella's there, when Giuseppe destoys it, he goes to the man Norman hired to get a copy. He tells Claude that a man went into his apartment while he was away and left at an unusual hour, and that he also has a video.

'Halliwells' stated that the film was a "modernized and simplified version of . . . Unfaithfully Yours (1948) . . . with only one plot instead of three", whilst similarly, 'Allmovie' declared that "the plot is simpler and more straightforward than the original version [of Unfaithfully Yours (1948)], in which the conductor harbored three separate elaborate fantasies".

User Reviews

Benefits rather substantially from the above-average efforts of its various performers...
22 September 2019 | by ierenzSee all my reviews

Unfaithfully Yours follows composer Claude Eastman (Dudley Moore) on the basis of the 1948 Preston Sturges movie as he becomes confident that his youthful wife (Nastassja Kinski's Daniella) is having an affair with a hunky singer (Armand Assante's Max) - with the story finally detailing Claude's attempts to plot a complex vengeance.It's a good premise that director Howard Zieff uses to watch (if mostly forgettable) impact, as the filmmaker, working from a script by Valerie Curtin, Barry Levinson, and Robert Klane, provides a slow-moving comedy that eventually benefits significantly from the above-average attempts of its multiple actors - with Moore's typically winning turn matching his two costars.There is also little doubt that the opening hour of Unfaithfully Yours contains a number of admittedly hilarious pieces of comedy that contribute heavily to the affable atmosphere, although it should be noted that the excessively slapsticky third act is not quite capable of making the knee-slapping impact that Zieff certainly intended.- Which confirms the location of the picture as a rather small Moore car.
