Sauvage innocence
2001 | France | Philippe Garrel | ★★★★

Philippe Garrel's acclaimed, FIPRESCI Prize-winning Wild Innocence is a slow, beautifully crafted meta-drama about the making of an anti-drug film, featuring cleverly layered storytelling, gorgeous black and white photography, and quietly affecting performances.


"A director wants to make an anti-drug film because his wife died of a heroin overdose. He’s planned the lead for a young actress with whom he’s in love. One day, a man becomes interested in the story and offers the director a vast sum of money—if he’ll smuggle heroin in a suitcase across the border." Mubi
