    Unforgivable isn't one of Mr. Téchiné's greatest achievements, but it's engrossing even when its increasingly populated story falters, tripped up by unpersuasive actions, connections and details.

    While Unforgivable stays true to this approach, its disparate souls feel too scattershot to be interwoven into a meaningful narrative tapestry.

    That seems to be one of the main theses of Unforgivable: that nothing is as dramatic as it appears, and presuming otherwise means risking unnecessary trouble and pain.

    It's some kind of monster of romanticized antiromanticism, filleting and exalting its characters, cheating and rewarding its breathless audience. The closest the film gets to a thesis is this shoulder-shrug torpedo: "People do things like that without knowing why."

    There appears to be well-crafted elements in service to an intriguing story when this movie starts, but it becomes less engaging and credibleThere appears to be well-crafted elements in service to an intriguing story when this movie starts, but it becomes less engaging and credible as the time goes by. The male lead has no charisma or animation, positively stunning us with boredom whenever he's on screen. The female lead is marginally better, but seems to have no motive for a range of silly acts. Ultimately, though we've peeked around a lot of corners, there is really nothing much to find out. Reasonably pretty view of Venice though. Full Review »
