US release date: June 29, 2012


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 (Carole 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.

Carole Bouquet is one of France’s most acclaimed actresses, having appeared in over 40 films, from Luis Buñuel’s surrealist classic That Obscure Object of Desire to Claude Berri’s Lucie Aubrac and Bertrand Blier’s international hit Too Beautiful for You for which she received the César for Best Actress. Ms. Bouquet was a Bond Girl in For Your Eyes Only.
