Soldini brings us vivid characters, and gets all the details right, from the humdrum rhythms of marriage to the unglamorous milieu of working-class Milan.
If the movie tells an old story, its unvarnished realism lends it poignancy and depth.
The outcome is of little surprise, but to Soldini's credit, the predictability is no hindrance to enjoying "Come Undone."
Come Undone ends with less than a proper gut-punch of cumulative effect, but this self-consciously modern movie contains classical pleasures.
Come Undone collapses the façade of emotional connection by highlighting the small erosive moments of deception rather than grandiose melodramatic tirades.
Mild but absorbing drama about infidelity, passion and deception among some everyday middle-class types in Milan is short on insight but benefits from involving characters, an enveloping urban milieu and inevitable consequences.
A sensitive anatomy of a sexual affair by Silvio Soldini, one of Italy's most gifted directors.
The story of a two lovers who forms a relationship based on cheating from both of their partners. The acting seemed natural but I kept yelling slut as I watched the film, it is unacceptable to try to justify cheating behavior, it's just wrong.
"Cone Undone" starts with a phone call in the middle of the night. Relax, it's good news for a change as Isa(Martina De Santis) has just gone into labor. That leaves her sister Anna(Alba Rohrwacher) and brother-in-law Alessio(Giuseppe Battiston) scrambling to find transportation to get her to the hospital with her husband away from home on work. Luckily, they are friends with Bruno(Fabio Troiano), a neighborly cab driver who has done this sort of thing before. All of which gets Anna and Alessio thinking about having a child of their own and she promises to go off the pill. Before then, fate intervenes in the person of Domenico(Pierfrancesco Favino), a waiter at a company retirement party who Anna asks out for a cup of coffee despite their both being married. That's not what they are only interested in, as finding a convenient spot to get it on proves harder than it initially sounds. Finally, they settle on a hotel that charges by the hour.
"Come Undone" is a knowing and well-acted look at the emotional pitfalls of an extramarital affair. The one thing I was initially struggling with was Anna's motivation. It definitely has nothing to do with Alessio's rotund body since they certainly have a loving marriage. Rather, I think it comes down to one last blowout before her body betrays her and full responsibility kicks in, especially since she got so freaked out by her sister giving birth. After the first successful encounter, the story shifts from Anna to Domenico and we get a feel for the pressure that he is under on a daily basis. In fact, the characters are all drowning in responsbility with the price of everything counted since they have to keep track in order not to go under. However, time can be even more precious than money.
