THE INNOCENTS (Anne Fontaine, 2016)

I find myself at a loss for words here.

This is a tough film to watch, a tough film to process, and a tough film to do justice to in words. But what a remarkable, relevant, beautiful, moving, illuminating and necessary cinematic achievement. It brings into focus yet another utterly devastating facet of World War ll horrors, but one that I'm not particularly familiar with and certainly haven't seen in a film before. Languid pacing, muted colour palette and minimal mise-en-scène visually convey the unthinkable, and when the sparse sound design is punctuated by either ethereal choral singing or piercing female shrieks it's more noise than one can emotionally handle.

This will haunt me for a time to come.

British actor Peter Wyngarde has died. I remember him best as the Honourable John Cleverly Cartney in The Avengers episode "A Touch of Brimstone", but he also appeared as Peter Quint in The Innocents, Jason King on Department S and its spinoff Jason King, and Klytus in Flash Gordon. #peterwyngarde #theavengers #atouchofbrimstone #theinnocents #departments #jasonking #flashgordon #classicfilm #classicmovies #britishcinema #classictv #classictelevision #britishtv #britishtelevision

So sad to hear of the passing of Peter Wyngarde - a man whose career ran through British Telefantasy and film from the 60s to the 90s.
Most famous as Jason King in Department S and his own spin off series, and to later generations as General Klytus in Flash Gordon.
He appeared with 2 great TV Sherlock Holmes - As Baron Grüner in “The Illustrious Client” opposite Peter Cushing, and his last TV role was playing gossip columnist Langdale Pike in “The Three Gables” with the immaculate Jeremy Brett.
In film he starred in the brilliant supernatural chiller “Night of the Eagle” (aka “Burn Witch Burn”) and the spectral Peter Quint in “The Innocents”.
On TV, he played villains in two of the best episodes of The Avengers: “A Touch Of Brimstone” and “Epic”, a notably suave and sinister No.2 in The Prisoner - “Checkmate” and appeared in the Doctor Who story “Planet of Fire” as Timanov opposite Peter Davison’s 5th Doctor.
Whilst also appearing in The Saint, The Baron, The Champions, The Comic Strip Presents..., Out of This World, One Step Beyond and numerous other shows, he spent a majority of his post-Jason King career on stage.
He even found time to record a partially spoken word, self-titled album in 1970, re-released in the 90s as “When Sex Leers Its Inquisitive Head” - which needs to be heard to be believed (WARNING TO THE CURIOUS - it’s very much a product of it’s time, and, one track in particular must have been fairly dodgy, even then)

A final note: My dear old dad used to dress to emulate like him back in the 60s (although he ended up looking a bit more like the Yorkshire Ripper lol)
RIP

Peter Wyngarde has died. This means there's only Su Pollard left who can carry off a lilac neckerchief and a crushed velvet blazer. He's been a mountain of a figure in my existence and an obsession with Department S/Jason King left to many ill-advised cravats purchased and acerbic remarks issued. I will be scribbling a tribute to Mr Wyngarde today. #peterwyngarde #departments #jasonking #doctorwho #lastofthefamousinternationalplayboys #queer #queericon #theinnocents #style #handlebarmustache

Peter Wyngarde died and the 1970’s have gone with him. The very embodiment of dandy, a true enigma (no one one knew his age not even him!) and the sort of gent that would have propped up the colonial club and toasted the setting sun over Hong Kong when she left the empire. Let’s not judge the past by modern standards but if you do want a laugh check out his wonderful spoken word Music, not for the easily offended. Peter wyngarde the last of an era, Steepways salute you! #peterwyngarde #sleuth #1970s #dandy #colonialclub #soho #actor #jasonking #departments #flashgordon #rpmrecords #alanbates #grossindecency #klytus #theinnocents #nightoftheeagle #thesaint #doctorwho #sydneycarton #cyrilgoldbert

Erasure “The Innocents” from 1988 🕺🕺🎤🎹🇬🇧Great music and great memories. I was in 10th grade and I hated school. But music and the friends I had at the time got me through. Cutting class and going to Tower Records and Pizza Hut were the best 🤣🙌🏼 #erasure #theinnocents #andybell #vinceclarke #fmradio #billboard #synthpop #newwave #britpop #80s #80smusic #80spop #nowplaying #nowspinning #record #recordplayer #teac #turntable #records #vinyl #vinylcollection #vinylcommunity #vinylcollector #vinyloftheday #instavinyl #vinylrecords #vinylrecord #vinyljunkie #vinyladdict #alittlerespect

#theinnocents #suspense es una elegantísima adaptación del famoso relato #otravueltadetuerca de #henryjames .
Apoyada por una soberbia fotografía en #cinemascope en blanco y negro y un excelente reparto encabezado por #deborahkerr a la que casi eclipsa un brillante #martinstephens (el niño), la acertada dirección de #jackclayton lleva a bien puerto un guión escrito por #trumancapote , entre otros, que en sólo 90 minutos nos lo cuenta todo de la forma más efectiva e inteligente.

Quizás falla un poco en la escritura del personaje principal, que parece darse cuenta con extrema facilidad de todo lo que sucede en realidad bajo la apariencia de una falsa normalidad cotidiana. Es, quizás, demasiado intuitiva para resultar del todo creíble, quedando en evidencia que esa inteligencia perceptiva es, en realidad, un recurso de los guionistas para hacer avanzar una historia que, de otro modo, transcurriría más lentamente. Ese artificio es un tanto evidente y distrae de la película.

La película huye de efectismos baratos todo lo que puede y consigue realmente inquietar y hacerlo con clase. Se echa en falta, eso sí, una descripción más descarnada de ciertos actos puntuales que se nos relatan, pero eso es algo propio del cine de la época, por lo que se aligera más de la cuenta lo que debiera ser algo más sórdido. Pero como hay talento de sobra involucrado, la película termina dando a entender lo que no muestra y es que, en el cine, cuando se hace bien, siempre es preferible sugerir a mostrar.
