Invisibles | Les Invisibles (N/C 15+) 

Social commentary, feminist anthem, broad comedy with a side of rom com – Louis-Julien Petit’s Les Invisibles is a marvellous genre-bending confection. That these dimensions don’t fuse seamlessly, but often collide, only serves to underline and expose the messiness of its heroines’ lives – these ‘invisibles’ society has left behind. Audrey and Manu run a day shelter for homeless women, offering them a warm shower, hot meal, a little camaraderie and some crucial career guidance. When municipal officials decide that the centre isn’t helping get enough people off the streets and back to work, they shut it down, leaving Audrey and Manu to deal with the consequences. The two soon decide to keep it open clandestinely, allowing their girls to stay there overnight while training them during the day to become confident and functioning members of society.

Cast Audrey Lamy, Noémie Lvovsky, Corinne Masiero, Pablo Pauly, Déborah Lukumuena, Marianne Garcia
