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 Histoires 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 (♀♂)
Female Orgasm: Maybe, Cumshot: On Himself
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! There's great variety in the sex, too, including a very hot sequence of mutual masturbation. The scene finishes with her deep-throating him, then masturbating him until he cums—but first demanding that he tell her he loves her.
The camera work is amazing. The general feel is very close and intimate, and with some fantastic shots of both their faces.
Scene 2: Rebecca Lord and Rodolph Antrim (♀♂)
Female Orgasm: Yes, Cumshot: Mouth
Features: Cunnilingus Orgasm
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. It's hot and passionate and natural sex, too. We really enjoyed watching her ride his face to orgasm and then leaning over and sucking his cock to orgasm.
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.
After Alban breaks up with Sylvia, he has sex with Aline in their bed. The sex is once again very natural and appropriate to the story. The scene ends a bit abruptly, though, with a switch to Sylvia standing outside the house.
Yet again, the relationship that has been established between these two dominates the sex. Her love for him really shines through in this scene.
Scene 4: Pascal St James and Tania Ritz (♀♂)
Cumshot: On Himself
Jean Marc has decided to stop having sex with random women on 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.
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: just sex, no talking. And she insists on giving him a few francs when they are done, just to make sure there are no strings.
The sex is passionate and hot, as you'd expect it to be. We were a bit surprised by the anal sex at the end, as she lies on her stomach, bent over the counter. But it seemed to fit the flow of the scene, and there's certainly nothing distubring about it.
