Critic Reviews for The Innocent (Der Unschuldige)

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

Unfolds like a slow-motion thriller, achieving a captivating kind of intimacy even as it maintains a chilly arm's-length remove from a cosmic mystery that no film can satisfyingly answer.

Though certainly ambitious and well-performed across the board, this has to be considered a bit of letdown from the clearly talented Swiss-German writer-director Simon Jaquemet.

The wildest film seen at Toronto, Swiss director Simon Jaquemet's dreamy and bewildering film is purposely enigmatic and consistently compelling.

The confusing passage from objective reality to mental delirium... reveals an immature director behind his images. [Full review in Spanish]

September 24, 2018 | Full Review…

Jaquemet cycles through all this mystery at an insufferably slow pace with a drab aesthetic. Yes, there are some images to ponder over, but they never cohere together in a satisfying way.
