Rio de Janeiro, 1950. Eurídice, 18, and Guida, 20, are two inseparable sisters living at home with their conservative parents.
“NYT Critic’s Pick! Vivid and bracing … its depiction of female friendship and love is pointedly ferocious.” – Glenn Kenny, New York Times
Although immersed in a traditional life, each one nourishes a dream: Eurídice (Carol Duarte) of becoming a renowned pianist, Guida (Julia Stockler) of finding true love. In a dramatic turn, they are separated by their father and forced to live apart. They take control of their separate destinies, while never giving up hope of finding each other. A gorgeously photographed, emotionally bracing tropical melodrama from Karim Aïnouz, the director of Madame Satã, Invisible Life won the Un Certain Regard Award at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival. (Dir. by Karim Aïnouz, 2019, Brazil/Germany, in Portuguese/Greek with English subtitles, 139 mins., Rated R)
