He aims to travel to London for a writer's course - telling his best friend, Pete Egan, that he has already bought the airplane ticket but he has not told to his mother yet. Annie Newton has a problem with Pete, who owes money to her. As events unfold, due to a case of mistaken identity Nick takes a severe beating from Annie and her gang, his body dumped in a sewer. The next morning, he discovers he cannot be seen - he is now a spirit in a state of limbo and can only observe as the events of that day unfold. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Did You Know?


"The Invisible" is based on the Swedish film The Invisible (2002), which was very loosely inspired by a novel of the same name by the Swedish writer Mats Wahl. See more »


When Nick was walking home from the party, he kicked over a big trash can and a trash bag. The big trash can landed in the middle of the street and rested on one of its handles. The very next close up shot of Nick, you can clearly see in the background that the trash bag and trash can are back on the curb. See more »


[first lines]
Diane Powell: It wasn't easy when Nick's father died, raising a teenager alone. But with a boy like Nick, well, he is now everything a mother could want. We've been through some hard times. We've carried each other. Now I look to the future, and I know there's nothing that we can't do together.

The invisible
15 April 2008 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

This film was a brilliant make. it arouses several types of emotions mixing them all together, let you feel a different kind of emotion to almost the full extent from moment to moment, producing understanding, acceptance, hope, love, sorrow, anger, frustration, disappointment and several more. I did not cry, but I felt, I was focused on this film, intrigued, surprised, not to mention that the acting supplied was splendid, it was truly a movie that in way I can not explain, moved me. I guess I feel compelled to share, that I am healing from brain damage and I suffer from health uncertain and not so positive all caused by lies, miss-understanding and psych meds.. I state this because what I am going through make it very hard, to focus, and get into, and feel, and many more things, but this film truly did to me as I stated out, and for me that clearly registers the story in the film and the film it self as a great achievement. It takes true wisdom, forgiveness, ability self worth and acceptance to react as the the main character reacted. I am proud to understand that from past experiences that I have went through, and through some experiences that In my situation I am going through.
