Les Innocents

This challenging 1987 drama stars Sandrine Bonnaire as a resolutely single woman from northern France who journeys to Toulon to attend her sister's wedding and take custody of their younger brother, who is deaf. She quickly succumbs to the lures of Provence and falls for a fragile young man (Simon de la Brosse) who's been driven to xenophobia by the liaison between his bisexual father (Jean-Claude Brialy) and a French Arab (Abdel Kechiche). Director Andre Techine (Changing Times) values form over character motivation, abruptly reshuffling his duos to explore class and cultural dynamics while ace cinematographer Renato Berta helps connect the seemingly random threads through hypnotic wide-screen tracking shots. In French with subtitles. 96 min.
