Cox's own directorial style is innocent, in the sense of being original without ever straining for effect.

I'd applaud Australian writer-director Paul Cox ... just for showing two people of about 70 who are emotionally alive, sexually connected and mentally vibrant.

[Blake] brings such warmth and understated passion to the role that she single-handedly offsets the weepy, melodramatic acoustic guitar riffs on the soundtrack.

A human story told with taste and simplicity. Better still, it is not maudlin.

The timelessness of love is perfectly expressed in Innocence, Paul Cox's humane story of rekindled romance among the elderly.

Takes a brave look at the need for emotional and physical love, no matter one's age, and proves a memorable glimpse into the lives of characters who are so often merely forgotten.

Claire and Andreas are both strong characters with compelling dilemmas that are beautifully realized by actors Julia Blake and Charles 'Bud' Tingwell.
