The Innocent – Movie

Thursday 28th September 2023
Location: Watergate Theatre, Kilkenny
Abel is determined to protect his mother, and is deeply suspicious about his new stepfather. He ropes in his friend Clemence to help spy on the newly-released Michel. They discover Michel is indeed still involved in crime, but before long they become embroiled in his plan to pull off ‘one last heist’ – a risky effort to steal a truckful of imported caviar.

Louis Garrel directs, co-writes and stars in this enjoyable French comedy-thriller. Consistently funny without ever undermining its dramatic core, this crime farce playfully toys with expectations through an abundance of amusing twists and surprisingly nuanced characters.
