Francis (Andre Dussollier, Micmacs, Tell No One) is a successful crime writer who moves to Venice to work on his next novel. When he meets model-turned-real-estate-agent Judith (Carole Bouquet, That Obscure Object of Desire, Red Lights), he is instantly infatuated. Francis and Judith eventually marry and move to a remote house on Torcello Island 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. Set against the beautiful backdrop of Venice, Unforgivable examines the consequences of unresolved past relationships and their far-reaching effects into the future. Directed and co-written by veteran French filmmaker Andre Techine (The Girl on the Train, Wild Reeds). Official selection of Cannes 2011 Directors’ Fortnight. (Fully subtitled)
