Storyline

Nick Powell is an excellent high-school student who raises money by selling homework and results of quizzes to his schoolmates. 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

Trivia

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

Goofs

Nick (to test if he was alive) takes a shotgun from the rack, steps out of view and discharges the weapon. The mistake is that the shotgun he took from the rack was a double barrel shotgun but you hear the sound of him "racking a round" as if it was a pump shotgun just before pulling the trigger.

Quotes

[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.

Strangely Compelling Teen Ghost Story
31 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Definitely NOT a copycat of "The Sixth Sense" this film instead is highly original, sets its own mark, goes its own way.

Although I haven't been a teen in decades, I know them well enough to say the portrayals of the central characters are as on-the-level as I've seen lately. This never-dull and unusual story kept us involved more than we expected, and I recommend it for anyone who enjoys either teen movies or supernatural thrillers.

If you rent it from Netflix, please beware of a similar titled film, a dreadful movie about two young American stone-heads pretty much comatose in a cheap flat in Paris. Dull and stupid.

The soundtrack of INVISIBLE is truly good and proves that good music is still being done in 2007 even if they don't ever play it on the air.

One way films have improved: When I was a teen there were never any teen movies with characters you could either believe or relate to. Now they make such movies frequently. After all, the most complex problems in a lifetime are during the teen years. Everything after that is easy once you've survived the basic training of that age. Once you know that you've got an over-sized field of ideas for good movies like this.
