Except during its heated sex scenes, Come Undone, a sober exploration of the disruptive effects of adultery on family life, portrays infidelity, despite its thrills, as almost more trouble than it’s worth. . . . Miserable and agitated when not together, Anna (Alba Rohrwacher, I Am Love, SFIFF 2010), a comfortably married accountant for a small insurance agency, and Domenico (Pierfrancesco Favino), a slightly older waiter who is married, are seized by an irresistible carnal attraction once Anna impulsively makes the first move. The besotted lovers face the usual logistical obstacles. Where and when will they meet? And what lies can they get away with telling?. . . [Soldini’s film] measures the day-by-day emotional cost of the affair: not only to Anna and Domenico, who are increasingly guilt-ridden and prickly with each other, but also to family, friends and business associates. . . . Like his last film, Days and Clouds, a calm, very sad examination of the effects of a husband’s sudden job loss on an affluent couple’s relationship and social life, Come Undone is solidly grounded in reality. If the movie tells an old story, its unvarnished realism lends it poignancy and depth. —Stephen Holden, New York Times
