Movie Info

Les Innocents reflects the desire of French film critic turned director Andre Techine to "find tragedy in melodrama." As with most of Techine's films, this drama is rich in style and gorgeous cinematography. Set in a French town upon the Mediterranean coast, the story centers on Bonnaire, a young woman who has come to see her sister marry an Arab. She has also come to find her deaf-mute runaway little brother who is working the streets as a petty thief for an Arab crook. The young boy feels misunderstood by everyone but Brialy, a bisexual but married man with a taste for young Arabs. Meanwhile Bonnaire meets de la Brosse, the bisexual son of Brialy. Sparks fly between Bonnaire and her new friend and they become romantically involved. Bonnaire then finds herself falling in love with Kechike, the Arab thief who takes care of her brother and this creates considerable dramatic tension.
