Sex is such a profoundly disruptive force in Adrian Lyne's film ''Unfaithful'' that as you watch it with your heart in your throat, you realize the degree to which Hollywood has succeeded in reducing screen sex to a fashion accessory. Its purpose in most movies nowadays is to embellish a story with enough but not too many discrete fillips of titillation and soft-core fantasy to quicken the pulse without causing palpitations. The lovemaking in ''Unfaithful'' leaves deep emotional imprints. In the most extraordinary scene, Connie Sumner Diane Lane , a beautiful, happily married suburban housewife and mother of a young son, mentally relives the details of her first extramarital tryst while taking a commuter train from Grand Central Terminal home to Westchester County. Connie is so absorbed in the memory of an encounter that has left her dazed and exhilarated that her features subtly re-enact the contortions of ecstasy, joy and trepidation she experienced during sex.
It tells the story of a couple living in suburban New York City whose marriage goes dangerously awry when the wife indulges in an adulterous affair with a stranger she encounters by chance. Despite mixed reviews overall, Lane received much praise for her performance. While shopping, Connie runs into stranger Paul Martel Olivier Martinez and scrapes her knees, accepting Paul's offer to treat her injuries at his Soho apartment. Uncomfortable with his advances, she leaves.
