The Loss of Sexual Innocence Photos

Movie Info

A series of loosely connected vignettes and flashbacks explores the life of a filmmaker named Nic (Julian Sands). In one, a pair of identical twins (Saffron Burrows) who were separated at birth discover each another at an airport, purely by chance. In another, 16-year-old Nic (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) discovers his girlfriend is having sex with someone else. Meanwhile, a creative retelling of the story of Adam (Femi Ogumbanjo) and Eve (Hanne Klintoe) frames the separate narratives.

Audience Reviews for The Loss of Sexual Innocence

  • Aug 21, 2009
    This plot-free film plays like a stream of dreams. The downside is that it also feels like a film-school experiment driven by Calvin Klein ad aesthetics. The core story is about a filmmaker who has lost much more than the film's provocative title suggests. Scenes in which a curious child evolves to a jaded adult are also intercut with a modern version of Adam and Eve in which a black man and white woman emerge from a small lake. There's enough philosophical and cinematic doodling here for several films.

    Delicate approach on various,contemporary sexual topics,from the Adam-Eve standard to puzzling tales of liturgical beauty.Figgis' most allegorical film.

    There are some people who can't even get these kind of shots on 35mm.

    A total f"#ked up mess!! Boring, tedious and terribly directed. Slow pace adds nothing. 25/100
