December 9, 2002
Cox's own directorial style is innocent, in the sense of being original without ever straining for effect.

December 6, 2001
A human story told with taste and simplicity. Better still, it is not maudlin.
November 8, 2001
Makes you long for an American filmmaker with the guts to put the AARP generation in roles this deep and rewarding.
October 28, 2001
Innocence is remarkable in several big ways that make it possible to overlook the nagging little ways in which it doesn't succeed.
October 25, 2001
It's about grown-ups and for grown-ups.
October 25, 2001
Because the script has them lovey-dovey from beginning to bittersweet end, their story is fatally lacking in dramatic conflict.
October 18, 2001
At first, the setup and Mr. Cox's lyricism are intriguing, but he has little to say once the wheels start turning.
October 12, 2001
The windy passages about life, love, time and whatnot are meant not to be spoken but reverentially intoned.

Conflicting emotions give the film a genuine and warming sense of humanity.
September 28, 2001
Cox keeps burdening [Blake and Tingwell] with lines that come to sound less like credible dialogue than windy rhetoric.

Films that achieve the dimension of seraphic embrace achieved by Innocence, as it explores a return to first love, are the rarest of the rare.

Speaks to the romantic in all of us, and it doesn't take long before we don't care about age.

This movie is so wise about love it makes us wonder what other love stories think they are about.

September 13, 2001
If there's a more passionate love story out there, then I haven't had the privilege of seeing it.
September 7, 2001
Innocence has all the other ingredients, too: a marvelous cast, a touching story, some lovely camera work (shot on location in South Australia and Belgium) and a palpable emotional connection between its characters and its audience.
September 6, 2001
A beautiful, almost defiant film on an unusual subject: love among the elderly.
August 31, 2001
Even if the idea behind Innocence outweighs its execution, it's hard to get angry at a film that embraces that.

August 17, 2001
It has the right performers for a character-driven romance, and the near-uniqueness of its screen concerns ultimately nudges you into its corner.
August 17, 2001
A moving and persuasive argument that the urgency for all-encompassing love only grows in the autumn of life, rather than diminishes.

A film for the ages.
August 14, 2001
It mostly proves that lovers in old age can be as cloying and narcissistic as they are in youth.
