    Outstanding film, full of insight into the nature of female boarding schools and their existance as a mechanism for sustaining and instilling class and gender distinctions in modern society, beautifully and powerfully shot, this is an enlightening film!

    The whole film is a very clever metaphor for coming of age.

    An extremely interesting film that makes you think. Strange, yes, weird yes, but you will have the plot going round in your head for ever and then probably never understand it.

    Sustains a pervasive feeling of anxiety and suspense, despite an absence of dramatic conflict or resolution.

    This genuine curio maintains its mystery to the end.

    The more overtly allegorical Innocence becomes, the duller it gets.
