What isn't very good is the meandering story that has so many points to make that it makes none. Luckily, there is a romantic ending, but how could there not be - it's set in Venice, after all.

Francis's fluster-as evinced by Dussollier and nurtured by Téchiné-makes for a pleasure both subtle and mildly sadistic.

Techine's latest is rich in emotional intrigue
September 7, 2012
Though the movie lasts a reasonably brief 107 minutes, Téchiné is in no hurry to reveal his characters. We're still learning about them in the last few scenes, and our loyalties and attractions change.

An exquisitely crafted, brilliant, confusing, disordered, maddening, and wonderfully flawed film that tries to show life as it is lived.

Flat and a bit stale, like the characters. Not one of Téchiné's finest.
August 11, 2012
Unforgivable is a bit too relaxed to function as a thriller. Though admirably unpredictable, its plot is also spread thin among these fickle lovers.
August 9, 2012
It creates the lived-in sense of being in the world of the characters.

Bouquet and the waterways of Venice are the chief charms of Téchiné's movie, which is otherwise one of his less convincing efforts.

What makes the film involving is that it doesn't depend on the mechanical resolution of the plot, but on the close observation of its effects on these distinctive characters.

[Unforgivable] sets out as an account of unusual lives, finishes as a portrait of a society -- one that lives between the conventional and the openly low.
August 3, 2012
It's clearly the work of a master storyteller, conveying a rich, novelistic sense of character and a poetic feeling for the passing of time.
July 20, 2012
The way Techine holds them up to the film's unforgiving light, they sometimes seem less like people than like insects in a jar.

Techine lavishes upon us not just scenery and characters but complications and emotional turmoil in pursuit of subtlety. If this seems perverse, it most certainly is.

July 19, 2012
The pervasive morbidity of Venice holds the narrative together, and a melancholy that companionship, parenthood, and art can't console.

July 19, 2012
An elegantly rambling Franco-Italian affair about the ways we do each other wrong while trying to do each other right.

July 19, 2012
The multi-layer cake story has one or three too many.

July 13, 2012
...a roundelay of obstinacy and desire, where lives are lived on their own terms, fiercely.

In "Unforgivable," Téchiné keeps throwing out teasing ideas, but he never makes good on any of them.

Every single player in Unforgivable is worth a movie of his or her own. The fact that they are all in the same movie together is more boon than bust.
