  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database


Deep in a forest lies an all-female boarding school. Cut off from the outside world its occupants are forbidden to leave the grounds or ask questions about the sounds they hear at night. The close proximity of the uncanny beside everyday activities creates a unique atmosphere of dread. It sounds like an art-house version of The Village and though the scenario is similar, the details and intention could not be more different. One of the most original debuts of recent memory, Innocence uses sound particularly well to build up an atmosphere of foreboding. Few answers are forthcoming - but signs and symbols abound. With strikingly composed 'scope images it's a rich cinematic experience.
