Aquarium worker Abel is furious when he learns his mother Sylvie is marrying a recently paroled inmate named Michel. Abel is determined to protect his mother, and is deeply suspicious about his new stepfather. He ropes in his friend Clemence to help spy on the newly-released Michel. They discover Michel is indeed still involved in crime, but before long they become embroiled in his plan to pull off ‘one last heist’ – a risky effort to steal a truck full of imported caviar.
Louis Garrel directs, co-writes and stars in this thoroughly enjoyable French comedy-thriller. Consistently funny without ever undermining its dramatic core, The Innocent is a crime farce that playfully toys with the audience’s expectations through an abundance of amusing twists and surprisingly nuanced characters.
