“[L’innocente is] a fitting coda to the Visconti career. It’s a film
of effortless command in which the director’s presence is everywhere felt – and nowhere intrudes.” — Vincent Canby, The New York Times
“[A] worthy finale to a distinguished career. It has a great performance from Laura Antonelli as the wife, and excellent ones from Giannini and Jennifer O’Neill as husband and lover.” — Time Out
