Lucille Hadzihalilovic's Innocence is a parable of female adolescence set within a mysterious,
other-worldly boarding school for young girls. The Paris-based
Hadzihalilovic's previous film, La Bouche de Jean-Pierre, was produced and shot by her partner,
Gaspar Noe and dealt with pedophilia. The new film, pictured
at right, is a kind of magical fairy tale for adults and looks to be quite different in tone
while retaining the cool formal control of her previous work.
Look for it to be somewhere in Cannes this year.
