Wild Innocence

Sauvage innocence

Directed by Philippe Garrel
France, Netherlands, 2001
  • French
  • English


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.

Our take

This film, last ever shot by Raoul Coutard, sees this highly personal director—whose dramas flirt with autobiography, reveries and memories recast in celluloid—explore the emotional turmoil of a movie production whose story is undeniably personal.
