The Innocent

L'Innocent

Louis Garrel | 2022 | 99 MINS
France | Subtitles
When Abel learns that his mother is about to marry a man in prison, he freaks out. With the help of his best friend, he will do whatever it takes to protect her.

In Detail

Doubting that convicted burglar Michel (Roschdy Zem) is capable of turning over a new leaf, Abel's protective streak kicks in, and so with the help of his best friend Clémence (a sensational Noémie Merlant), he begins tailing his new stepfather's movements.

Their amateur sleuthing is quickly uncovered by Michel and triggers an unlikely - and bold - business proposition for them both. Few caper comedies have this much heart, and few romantic dramas offer such an appealingly nutty plot. Keeps you off-kilter, and its escalating antics always entertain.
