(15)

An irresistable mix of tense action, likeable characters, a hint of romance and some fabulous French humour. 

Crime, suspense and high jinks humour – here they blend together brilliantly. Abel, a troubled, protective son, is convinced that his mother’s new beau Michel, the former burglar who she met while running a prison workshop, is up to his old tricks. Accompanied by his wary best friend Clémence,  Abel tracks Michel’s movements and his suspicions are heightened. Spurred on, he risks getting embroiled in something distinctly shady.

Dir: Louis Garrel I Cast: Louis Garrel, Noémie Merlant Language: French (subtitled)  

“Garrel’s The Innocent deftly mixes comic family melodrama with genre thrills in this pacy, emotive thriller with a killer cast” 
Christopher Machell, CineVue
