The Innocent

A comic thriller inspired by celebrated actor-director Louis Garrel’s own life. When Abel learns that his 60-year-old mother Sylvie is about to marry a man in prison he freaks out. With the help of his best friend, Clémence, he will do whatever it takes to protect her. But meeting Michel, his new stepfather, may well offer him a new perspective…
After The Crusade in 2021, his ecology-themed film shot with Laeticia Casta, Louis Garrel tries his hand at a new genre with The Innocent, a romantic thriller. This touchingly offbeat and funny film juxtaposes various themes, oscillating joyously between a romantic comedy and a heist movie. As in his three previous films, the actor-director draws on his own life story to tell that of Abel, who opposes his mother Sylvie's marriage to a convict. Alongside his co-screenwriter Tanguy Viel, Louis Garrel has taken on the role of Abel to create a multicolored work of self-fiction boasting an enticing choice of actors. Roschdy Zem, in the shoes of the romantic convict, Anouk Grinberg (Sylvie), who is making her big comeback, and Noémie Merlant, who draws upon his undeniable comic potential as the best friend of the actor-director. A zany, light-hearted rush.
