Critics reviews

Aïnouz may not bear the same household name of fellow Cannes attendee and melodrama-savvy auteur Pedro Almodóvar, but The Invisible Life offers outstanding evidence of the Brazilian’s ability to play with the genre’s tropes and craft a wrenching tale of sliding doors, of lives unfolding along parallel lines and almost—but never quite—crossing.

There is much to admire here, particularly both women’s performances and the delicate shading of Hélène Louvart’s cinematography. The question of how “The Invisible Life of Eurídice Gusmão” will resolve itself keeps the movie continually absorbing and suspenseful. The film’s fatal flaw is that it doesn’t seem to know the answer.
