Lemme try and answer your questions (Spoilers follow, obviously):
1. ...bianca is blindfolded and injected with something...
I don't remember any such scene. Can you tell me where that scene appears? Anyway, if you are talking about the scene when Iris follows Bianca to the big house during the night, then, the woman getting the injection wasn't Bianca
, she was just some old caretaker-lady getting her medication, and she wasn't blindfolded. Bianca, at that time, wasn't in the house. She was on the stage, performing for the audience, behind the grandfather clock. That was the only time of the day that the people from outside came there. So, it was the only time a doctor could visit and check on the old caretakers.
2. what was with the women talking about the fact that she didnt want alice becoming one of them?...'them as in what',stuck at the school?
Yes, stuck at school.
3. What was with the creepy coffins?...
4. were the children sent there by their parents?,how did they get there?
Question No. 4 doesn't need to be answered, because that would betray what the movie is about. It's about the "the Pupa stage". Let me explain:
The movie Innocence is kind of a metaphor for the life cycle of a butterfly. The girls spend the starting few years of their lives outside, growing and getting ready (Larvae
stage, "Maggots" is what the dance teacher calls them). Then they enter the boarding school (Pupa
stage) which is closed from all side (Cocoon
). The point at which they enter the Pupa stage is the end of the larvae stage. In other words: the death of the larvae (hence the coffin
). Here they are turned from "Maggots" to graceful ladies (Butterflies
). After this, they leave the boarding school (the cocoon) to enter the outside world once again and find a mate (as Bianca does at the end, near the fountain).
whats wrong with walking!,and the being naked thing?
I don't remember anything being wrong with walking.
The "naked thing" is there to emphasize their innocence. Young girls don't see their bodies as objects of sexual desire. In fact, they don't even have any idea what sexual desire is. So, their nakedness shows their innocence
5. whats with the shows they put on...they are pritty self suficiant...
No, they are not self sufficient. They need money for electricity, water for drinking and other uses, food, gas (to cook food), soap, etc.,
6. And Why do people go and see little girls who are not their daughters dress up fairies in skimpy costume? (i dont care what anyone says,there is definatly a pervert theme running there) or do their parents come and see them?
Why do you watch a movie with half naked little girls who aren't your daughter? I don't care what anyone says, there's definitely something perverted about you.
Anyway, in case you are wondering, the movie isn't set in an modern era. Watching stage shows is the only form of entertainment.
And, no, they are not the girl's parents. Otherwise they would pay more for the upkeep of the school than just the price of admission to the show.
7. who is the bloke with the rose and glove,whats that about?
In the movie The Fine Art of Love
, which is loosely
based on the same book, this character takes the girl home and rapes her. He may be a pervert in this movie too. Or, maybe, that scene is there to show that among all the girls in boarding school, she's the one who's the most successful in becoming a beautiful "butterfly", 'cause she's the only one to get such a reaction from the audience. This point is further illustrated in the ending where she is the 1st one to attract a mate, and she did it pretty quickly too.
And now, my comments on some of the things you said:
I watched it under the impression (because of the way it was phrased on the sky review) that it was going to be a seedy place where they were tortured or prostitues or something
You probably watched the wrong movie. Watch The Fine Art of Love
which is based on the same book, but has all those things that you were expecting, and more.
im not saying that i wanted it to be about that because thats just nasty
Apparently, you decided to watch the movie after reading that review, and you seem to be disappointed that the movie didn't turn out that way. So, yeah, consciously or subconsciously, you did want it to be that way. Nothing wrong with that. We like to see characters get in all sorts of troubles, 'cause wanting to see how they overcome these problems is what keeps our interest.
a film that didnt go anywhere,or do anything or have any meaning at all?
Read the answer to the 3rd and 4th question.
Personally, I think that the movie was very boring and a waste of time for me. The realization, in the end, that the whole movie was a metaphor was the only thing that I liked about it.
AFC to PUA. That's the dream.
I agree with you all the way, except I liked the movie a lot, though.
Thx for this interpretation.
