Starring Marion Cotillard, the film narrates life inside a girl’s boarding school through the eyes of 6-year-old Iris, as she gets used to her new life.

Focus & Homages / Lucile Hadzihalilovic

After La bouche de Jean-Pierre, Hadzihalilovic returns to the passage from childhood to adolescence, although in this case she steers clear from the Parisian-suburbs sleaziness of her first film and adapts Mine-Haha, a novel by German playwright Frank Wedekind. In some way, the three films directed by Hadzihalilovic to date try to capture that decisive moment of transformation: the instant, which lasts a few months, in which an entire phase of life (childhood) is inexorably left behind and some sort of rebirth takes place. Set in a female boarding school to which the new students arrive in shiny coffins, Innocence is a superb, sensual fantasy influenced in equal measures by Kafka, the Walser from Jakob von Gunten or the Peter Weir from Picnic at Hanging Rock.
