In "A Song of Innocence," Charlotte(Emilie Duquenne) has just given birth to a baby girl but hated the experience so much that she does not want to let her husband Julien(Gregoire Colin) anywhere near her. It is harder than it sounds since he was disappointed that he did not get a son. At least, he hired Angele-Marie(Isild Le Besco) to be their wet nurse from an agency.
"A Song of Innocence" is a darkly enchanting movie that in mood resembles one of the fairy tales Charlotte is so fond of. That does not mean the movie is not steeped in reality, in this case late 19th century France where cameras are becoming more common. At the same time, ignorance is still rampant which does nothing to help with the incredibly high infant mortality rate. And the master-servant relationship of the time is not much different from that under the monarchy, except it takes on a fetishistic tone in the movie. All of which is a shame because Charlotte really does not need a wet nurse(she is lactating nicely on her own) but a friend.
