Film show: Louis Garrel’s ‘Innocent’ family romance

Issued on: Modified:

Actor and director Louis Garrel drew inspiration from his mother’s unconventional romance for his latest release “L’Innocent”. Film critic Lisa Nesselson tells us why it’s an endearing watch and why he’s building a thoughtful body of work as a young filmmaker. We also discuss recent reports that attendance in French cinemas is down this year, and how the industry’s virtuous cycle is jeopardised by the streaming services offering movies on the small screen.

Plus, Cristian Mungiu’s latest release “RMN” takes a powerful social snapshot of contemporary Romania, and we check out Jerzy Skolimowski’s unique and touching homage to a donkey in the form of “EO”.
