Innocence, a second runner-up for the Audience Award at the 2000 Toronto International Film Festival, is a heartfelt love story for all ages which shows that passionate love is not just for the young. Andreas, a retired, widowed music teacher, reliant on his daughter for companionship and support, is possessed by magical memories from his days as a youthful music student in post-war Belgium and his love for a passionate young woman named Claire. He tracks Claire down through a series of correspondences and orchestrates a precipitous meeting with her. Claire has been in a loveless marriage for the last 20 years and, when she encounters Andreas once again, the two instantly find their romantic passions rekindled, picking up where they left off 40 years ago. Andreas and Claire find their previous safe, stable existence shattered by their resurfacing feelings for each other which, if anything, have re-emerged stronger after their prolonged absence. The dizzying passion of puppy love revisited in 60-year-old bodies has consequences that neither expects.

All proceeds from the Film Circuit Brampton go to support educational programs for Peel children and their families. The Peel Heritage Complex acknowledges the following community sponsors who helped make this project possible:
