In the "Full Screen Special Edition" love scene at approximately 55 minutes, Ms. Lane's breasts are fully exposed very briefly before being cupped by Martinez's hands from behind. The wide screen version chops off the bottom of the frame thereby removing the full exposure. See more »
A well observed character study made great by Diane Lane
This film is not what you expect it to be. The trailers have you thinking it's another thriller along the lines of A Perfect Murder or Fatal Attraction but it is much.much more than that. Unfaithful is a superbly directed and superbly acted character study and the tragic consequences of someone's actions. It sounds very familiar but it isn't. It's a first class and very absorbing thriller with a stand-out performance by award winner Diane Lane. In fact it is Diane Lane's unforgettable performance which lifts Unfaithful from superb to greatness. A new classic of the genre has been delivered and delivered with style and heart.
