Fine suffers from not being seen but she also does her best at not being noticed, even though she is an acting student. At night, when her mentally handicapped sister Jule cannot get to sleep and stereotypically bangs her head against the wall, Fine turns the recorder on and gives a firework of singing, acting and dancing. However in the acting school she lacks self confidence to uninhibitedly storm the stage. After the well known director Kasper Friedemann invites Fine for an audition, she convinces him with her acting. But he also sees in Fine an injured being (vulnerable personality) that matches his vision of Camille, the main character in his next play. Fine gets her first big part that she in no way wants to lose. She slips into another identity. As Camille, she awakens to her femininity, but through Camille, Fine also loses her own strengths that she shows every day in dealing with her sister Jule. Because Camille is not only self-conscious and sexually active but at the same ... Written by
I have seen this movie in German language, even if I speak German a little. Even though, Die Unsichtbare really hit me. It was so intense, real and full of emotions, that it's even impossible to feel untouched by it. The acting was perfect, the storyline direct and the story was frighteningly real. The character of Josephine was believable mainly because of the pain and suffering she has been through. This movie reminds me of Black Swan, but the main difference is that Black Swan was more abstract and visual. Black Swan was interwoven by Nina's hallucinations, we saw mainly her broken perspective of the world. Die Unsichtbare is more real and therefore even more emotional. Josephine is played very well by young actress Stine Fisher Christensen, and as a psychotic directer shined Ulrich Noethen. This movie is not for everyone, it's really rough (the last half hour mainly) and emotionally smashing, even more than Black Swan.
