Louis Garrell comedy ‘The Innocent’ – Deadline

Actor / director Louis Garrell’s Hist Film The Innocent (L ‘Innocent), Flat out recreational. It hits all the familiar beats of a romantic dark comedy, but its fun, satirical dialogue that carries the pressure of the whole establishment to the end.

Sylvie (Anuk Greenberg) is a drama teacher in a prison and she falls in love with one of her students, Michelle (Rosdy Jem), who was imprisoned for taking part in a robbery. The couple gets married in a prison where her son Abel (Louis Garrell) is present. Abel is not a smart man but an honest one and he wants to protect his mother. She is remarkably uncomfortable because her mother is marrying an ex-con, but she smiles and endures. She has the right to be upset because she’s constantly wondering if Michelle is still guilty. Or someone who wants to live an honest life.

Abel begins to frustrate his guard when his stepfather and mother start a business together, but when he suddenly finds a gun in Michelle’s pocket, His suspicions were rekindled. Her best friend and colleague Clemens (Nomi Merlant) discusses her results, but she advises him to get out of paranoia. He also tells Sylvie about it and she doesn’t believe him either. Abel takes matters into her own hands and begins tracking Michelle around Paris until she discovers something that may or may not confirm her suspicions.

Innocent Cannes 2022’s first movie To give me that stomach ache, the knee-slapping smile that was sorely needed at the festival. Of course, the film is traditional in the humorous sense, but it eliminates the cinematic arrogance that is embedded in most of the ear content.

The ingenuity of the script lies in the idea that it is the art of acting, and how it is the skill needed to create the perfect hit. The film also takes an interesting path when it comes to unraveling the latent romance between Abel and Clemens. At one point in the movie, the two are assigned to act in a scene where a couple breaks up, but it turns out to be a love confession that shocks them both. At first it seemed like a simple guy / girl friendship (which would be refreshing), but at least it didn’t show up in the ordinary, romantic comedy fashion.

Garrell cracked a smile inside one or two Innocent. Usually, not such a description, but because the actor always seems to be in a lazy mood, I was surprised to see him eager for a change and absolutely. Her co-stars Noemie Merlant and Roschdy Zem praised the actor for their humorous and high strength and acting.

Innocent Garell doesn’t want to reinvent the genre or use fancy cinematic techniques Wants to have a good time. And I also wanted to have some fun with the way the Cannes Film Festival is going for me. The thing to appreciate here is its focus on keeping the audience engaged in the story and the characters – all the things needed to keep pace from start to finish.
