Dir. Karim Aïnouz. Brazil, 2019. 2h 19m. Portuguese/subs. Starring Julia Stockler, Carol Duarte, Flávia Gusmão, António Fonseca, Hugo Cruz, Nikolas Antunes.

In 1950s Rio de Janeiro, two inseparable sisters dream of leaving home and escaping from the control of their conservative parents. But when they suddenly are forced to live apart, they have to take control of their own destinies, all the while hoping that one day they will be reunited. Acclaimed Brazilian director Karim Aïnouz’s lush melodrama about feminine resilience won the Un Certain Regard prize at the Cannes Film Festival.

‘Aïnouz’s Invisible Life reflects the kind of love story we rarely see on-screen, and it’s a gem worth discovering for yourself.’ ★★★★★ Monica Castillo, The Wrap

‘Lush melodramas are a dying breed, especially masterful ones like Karim Aïnouz’s Invisible Life that wear Douglas Sirkian genre conventions on their sleeve proudly and abundantly.’ ★★★★★ Tomris Laffly,
