Unique and divine Unfaithful finds a way to tell a simple story perhaps the simplest story of all Unfaithful appears to be todays translation of Paradise Lost Edward and Connie have a picture perfect marriage But when Connies chance encounter with an attractive stranger Paul turns into a full-blown affair desire becomes obsession and the true penalty of betrayal takes a devastating toll In this movie there are many subtle details and intriguing metaphors Just as Eve falls from grace because she gave into her temptation of the tree of knowledge Connies marriage falls due to her temptation for Paul Martel The viewers are supposed to like all of the characters in Unfaithful and yet in someway they cant like any of them Paul Martel is a brilliant example of this While Paul is ever so charming and seems almost untainted he is the one who brings the fall upon Connie and her family Paul is a devil in disguise In fact Paul is much like the devil in Paradise Lost Paul never once makes Connie deceive her husband but instead lures her to do so Connie is more often than not taken in my Pauls romancing ways When Connie first visits Pauls apartment he gives her a book and has her read a passionate poem The last line reads Enjoy this moment for this moment is your life After Connie reads this she has a look of innocence A look that has the viewer assuming she has fallen for Paul Even though Connie shows up at Pauls apartment after their first encounter she has good intentions to just be friends Paul on the other hand seems to want more He romances her by telling her that she has beautiful eyes So beautiful that she should learn to sleep with her eyes open This type of romancing is very similar to what the devil in Paradise Lost does to Eve before he gets her to
