De Uskyldige (The Innocents) (2021), directed by Eskil Vogt, is a Norwegian psychological horror film that delves into the eerie and unsettling world of childhood innocence corrupted by supernatural abilities. The film is noted for its chilling atmosphere, strong performances, and thought-provoking exploration of moral ambiguity.

Set in a seemingly ordinary apartment complex during a summer break, the story follows four children—Ida, her autistic sister Anna, and their friends Ben and Aisha—who discover they possess mysterious and potentially dangerous powers. As they experiment with their newfound abilities, their actions take a dark turn, revealing the sinister potential lurking within them.

Ida, portrayed by Rakel Lenora Fløttum, is the central character who initially appears curious and playful but becomes increasingly troubled by the group's escalating experiments. Alva Brynsmo Ramstad plays Anna, whose communication and behavior are transformed by her telepathic abilities. Sam Ashraf as Ben and Mina Yasmin Bremseth Asheim as Aisha round out the quartet, each bringing a unique dynamic to the unfolding drama.

Eskil Vogt’s direction is marked by a meticulous build-up of tension, using the everyday setting to heighten the sense of unease. The film’s cinematography, with its stark and realistic portrayal of the apartment complex and surrounding areas, contrasts sharply with the fantastical elements of the children's powers, creating a jarring and immersive experience.

"The Innocents" is not just a horror film but a nuanced exploration of the moral complexities and the darker side of human nature, especially as manifested in children. It challenges the notion of innocence, showing how the line between good and evil can blur even at a young age. The performances, particularly by the young cast, are remarkable, conveying a range of emotions from innocence to malice.

Overall, "The Innocents" is a haunting and thought-provoking film that leaves a lasting impact, cementing Eskil Vogt’s reputation as a director capable of blending psychological depth with supernatural horror.
