Unforgivable (2011)

Directed by: André Téchiné
Country: France

Plot: A crime writer living in Venice while working on his new novel meets and soon marries his real-estate agent.
Review: “Unforgivable” is all about relationships. Told in a simple manner, the ideas flow, without really being engrossing. Veteran actor André Dussolier plays a writer who can’t write when in love. Besides, his head is too stuffed with concerns related to other people around him: a missing daughter; a wife who is much younger than him; a problematic son of a dying friend. With a structure organized in four parts, each one representing a different season (Eric Rohmer did the same approach with great success but in four different movies), “Unforgivable” shows baffled feelings within a futile imbroglio of relationships.
