Movie Info

Produced for the Lifetime cable channel, Indiscretion of an American Wife is a remake of Vittorio De Sica's 1953 theatrical feature of the same name. While her diplomat husband (Michael Murphy) is stationed in Rome, neglected wife Julia Burton (Anne Archer) enters into a clandestine romance with dashing Italian vintner Matteo (Andrea Occhipinti). Eventually, her husband is called home -- and during what may or may not be her final rendezvous with Matteo at a Roman railway station, Julia is forced to make a crucial decision about her future, and the future of everyone whom she holds near and dear. Unlike the 1954 American release of the De Sica original, which was cut by 20 minutes for domestic consumption, the remake runs a full 90 minutes, allowing for fuller character development and a less abrupt denouement. However, Anne Archer and Andrea Occhipinti, talented though they may be, are but pale shadows of De Sica's stars, Jennifer Jones and Montgomery Clift. Filmed on location in Italy, this Indiscretion first aired March 9, 1998.
