Movie Info

Though directed by John Shleisinger, adapted from a book by popular British author Ian McEwan and featuring an international all-star cast, The Innocent was only given a limited release before it was relegated to video. Set in a misty Cold-War-era Berlin, it is the tale of a rather naïve British telephone tapping expert (played by American actor Campbell Scott, son of George C. Scott) who is seduced by an enigmatic Italian beauty (Isabella Rossellini) who may or may not be working for the Russians. The Brit is mentored by an American spy (played by British actor Sir Anthony Hopkins) in charge of completing a secret tunnel beneath the German city that will allow the Allied nations to tap into East German/Russian phone lines.

Critic Reviews for The Innocent

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

A convoluted but not very credible spy story about Cold War intrigue in Berlin in 1955.

March 28, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

I found the movie more intriguing than finally satisfying; because it kept spinning off-center, kept changing the rules of its game, however, it was never boring.

February 13, 2001 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It tells a story that never engages or involves the audience and lacks any semblance of energy
