The Innocents

De Uskyldige

Eskil Vogt | 2021 | 117 MINS
Norway/Sweden | Subtitles
Four children become friends during the summer holidays, and out of sight of the adults they discover they have hidden powers. However, their innocent play takes a dark turn and strange things begin to happen.

In Detail

The lonely, uncanny and sometimes unthinkingly violent world of childhood is explored with chilling candour and exceptional skill in writer-director Eskil Vogt’s arthouse horror feature.

A group of children gain uncanny powers including telekinesis and the ability to hear other people’s thoughts.

Ida’s friendship with Ben threatens the stability of the group. As the tension escalates and the stakes get higher, with gruesome consequences for several of the principles, Vogt keeps the focus tight on the children throughout, which somehow punches up the sense of dread.

Chilling and deeply unsettling.
