An original feelgoodfilm, filled with surprises, by the French director and actor Louis Garrel.
When Abel (Garrel) finds out that his mother wants to marry an ex-inmate, he doesn’t trust this Michel (Roschdy Zem) right away. But his mothers happiness is more important to him than anything else. Together with his best friend Clémence (Noemie Merlant) he keeps a close watch and decides to follow Michel to Paris. This leads to a string of discoveries that might offer the dynamic duo a whole different perspective.
L’Innocent had its world premiere in Cannes in 2022 and it was the closing film of the Tapis Rouge Festival.
