It's probably easiest to think of Infidélité as a set of three interconnected, but very different, stories about infidelity. The protagonists of the three stories are all men, and the stories themselves are focused more on the emotional fallout of these illicit relationships than on their sexual aspects.
The first of the stories—they are interwoven, but we have to start somewhere—concerns Patrick [Rodolph Antrim] whose infidelity consists in his exploring his fantasies by watching porn on his computer and masturbating, rather than sharing them with his wife Marianne [Rebecca Lord]. The second concerns his friend Jean Marc [Pascal St James], who has an arrangement with his wife Hélenè [Defynn Delage] that allows him to sleep with other women one day a week—on Tuesdays. The third concerns Alban [Bruno SX], who is a masseuse, and who has been having an extended affair with the much younger Sylvia [Graziella Diamond]. His wife Aline [Nomi] knows about the affair, but mostly chalks it up to a mid-life crisis: Alban celebrates his 50th birthday near the start of the movie.
There are all kinds of twists and turns in these three stories, which are really engaging and often quite funny. The first two sex scenes are really excellent, as well, especially the first. There isn't as much variety in the sex as we would wish, however, and as a result we didn't find the later scenes as exciting. But the camera work during the sex is, as always with Ovidie's films, fantastic.
Overall, then, we really enjoyed this movie. It's not as good as Histoire de Sexe(s), but that's hardly a serious criticism, since that is one of the best movies we have ever seen. But it's emotionally deeper than Liberte Sexuelle, if not quite as funny.
This movie won the 2013 Feminist Porn Award for Movie of the Year.
Scene 1: Bruno SX and Graziella Diamond (⚤)
Alban has sex with his mistress Sylvia in his office.
It's amazing how arousing this scene is, given how inexplicit it is in some ways. But it is really, really hot, in part at least because of what we know of their relationship. He had decided to break off their affair, but he cannot resist her, and it is hard to blame him!
The camera work is amazing. The general feel is very close and intimate, and with some fantastic shots of both their faces.
They kiss, and she rubs and then kisses his cock through his pants. She takes him out and sucks him, and he leans over and kisses her. She turns onto her back on the massage table, and he reaches over and fingers her. He goes down on her, then kneels up, and she removes his shirt.
They masturbate each other as they kiss, and he fucks her, standing beside the massage table as she sits on it. He disengages and goes down on her again, then stands up and re-enters her. They switch to doggy style, with her standing and leaning onto the table, and he then pushes her over onto it. He then lies on the table, and she gets astride him on her knees and rides him.
She gets off him and sucks him, deep-throating him, then masturbates him until he cums—first demanding that he tell her he loves her.
Scene 2: Rebecca Lord and Rodolph Antrim (⚤)
Patrick and Marianne are taking pictures for their profile on CyberSwinger, and they are having such a good time that they end up having sex.
Here again, the sense for why they are having sex really contributes to how sexy this scene is. We know, from the story, that this is going to be a special moment for them.
They kiss on the bed, as he lies on his back and she lies over him. He lowers her top and sucks her tits, and she kneels up and slowly undoes her bottoms. He helps her out of them, then reaches down and rubs her pussy through her panties as she grinds on his cock a bit.
She straddles his face, and he pulls aside her panties and eats her. She reaches back and rubs his cock through his shorts, and she cums at about 43:30. She leans over and kisses him, then gets between his legs and sucks him after he loses his shorts. We think he cums in her mouth, but we are not sure.
After Alban breaks up with Sylvia, he has sex with Aline in their bed.
Yet again, the relationship that has been established between these two dominates the sex. Her love for him really shines through in this scene.
She kisses her way down his body, lowers his shorts, and sucks his cock. She takes off her panties, at his request, then lies over him as they kiss. She makes her way back to his cock, and he then flips her onto her back, spreads her legs, and goes down on her. They kneel up together and masturbate each other as they kiss.
She lies back on the bed, and he fingers her pussy as he rubs her clit. He then lies over her and enters her, and they switch positions so she is on top of him. She kneels up and bucks against him...and the scene sort of ends, as we switch to seeing Sylvia outside their house.
Scene 4: Pascal St James and Tania Ritz (⚤)
Jean Marc has decided to stop having sex with random women and Tuesdays and instead to have no-strings-attached sex with prostitutes. This is his first time, in a hotel room.
In this case, the lack of any relationship between these two is very noticeable, and as a result the sex did not feel as erotic to us—though that may well be the point of the scene.
She lies over him and kisses his body, and he kneels up and kisses her chest. She leans over and sucks him, wrapping her necklace around his cock.
She grabs a condom and puts it on him with her mouth, then lies on her back on the bed, and he kneels over her and enters her. They switch to spooning, and then to doggy style. She then masturbates him to orgasm as he lies on his back.
Scene 5: Nomi and Phil Holliday (⚤)
Aline has grown somewhat tired of Alban's cheating and so, in revenge, she picks up a guy in the park, takes him home, and fucks him. He is more than a bit surprised at her attitude: sex, no talking. And she insists on giving him a few francs when they are done, just to make sure there are no strings.
They kiss, standing in the kitchen, and she takes off his shirt, then undoes his pants. She kneels down, lowers his shorts, and sucks his cock.
She sits on the counter, and he lifts her dress and goes down on her. She then lies back on the counter, her hips at the edge of it, and he stands up and enters her, leaning over to kiss her as he fucks her. She turns over, lying on her stomach on the counter, and he stands behind her, fucking her doggy style and, we think, in the ass.
Scene 6: Ricky Mancini and Graziella Diamond (⚤)
Sylvia has taken to dating Alban's son Quentin [Ricky Mancini] as a way of getting back at him. In this scene, they have sex on a staircase at his house.
He pulls her panties aside and eats her pussy as she stands against the wall. They switch positions, and she kneels down, undoes his pants, and sucks him.
She stands up and leans against the wall, and he fucks her from behind.
