The line between cinematic art and exploitation has rarely seemed finer and nervier than in the French film "Innocence." A parable about the lost paradise of girlhood, specifically those prepubescent years before a girl surrenders to the inevitable bumps and fluids, the film marks the directing debut of Lucile Hadzihalilovic, whose seemingly plotless story centers on an all-girls boarding school in a thickly treed forest of the sort usually inhabited by hungry wolves and little wayfarers in symbolic red hoods. Ms. Hadzihalilovic based her screenplay on a relatively obscure text by the German-born playwright Frank Wedekind called "Mine-Haha, or the Corporeal Education of Young Girls." The fealty of Ms. Hadzihalilovic's translation of the Wedekind text notwithstanding, the dubious vision of utopia put forth in this film finds the girls engaged in an almost militaristic pursuit of physical perfection without commensurate attention paid to their intellect. — Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

Глубоко в лесу находится таинственный интернат для девочек от 7 до 12 лет, куда их привозят в закрытом гробу. Сюрреалистические фантазии, тайны и угрозы царят в этом мире. И куда старшие девочки исчезают ночью?

While the acting was generally good, I found the film to be manipulative and exploitative. Perhaps this is how it was intended to be, but if so, then I would not recommend it to anyone.
