Acclaimed director André Téchiné (Wild Reeds, Les Voleurs, Witnesses, The Girl on the Train)'s UNFORGIVABLE, is a multi-layered new drama starring iconic actress Carole Bouquet (That Obscure Object of Desire), set against the beautiful backdrop of Venice. Selected for the 2011 Cannes Film Festival Directors Fortnight, UNFORGIVABLE is scheduled to open in NY (at the IFC Center) and LA on Friday, June 29.
In this adaptation of Philippe Djian's best-selling novel, Francis (André Dussollier, Wild Grass, Tell No One) is a successful crime novelist who moves to Venice to start a new book. When he meets bisexual model-turned-real-estate-agent Judith (Bouquet,) he is instantly infatuated. The two eventually marry and move to a remote house on the island of Sant’ Erasmo but Francis’ newfound happiness hinders his writing. Obsessing over what Judith does while at work, he hires a young ex-convict (Mauro Conte) to investigate. As Judith’s sexual past is revealed, both men become increasingly fixated on the mysterious woman. UNFORGIVABLE examines the consequences of unresolved past relationships while exploring themes dear to Téchiné such as love, desire, guilt, parenthood and fidelity in all their complex variations.
