For a blissful spell, the movie flirts with becoming a noirish study in voyeuristic obsession. (Téchiné, replicating a view through binoculars, briefly aligns our perspective with that of his distrustful protagonist.) In the end, however, Unforgivable is a bit too relaxed to function as a thriller. Though admirably unpredictable, its plot is also spread thin among these fickle lovers.
