Blind Spot | L’Angle mort (N/C 15+)

A music store employee discovers he has been born with the ability to render himself invisible In Patrick-Mario Bernard and Pierre Trividic’s anti-superhero blast. But such power only leads to loneliness, alienation and a feeling that he would have been better off without it. It’s a refreshingly pessimistic take on a genre that has dominated Hollywood for nearly two decades. Down-and-out Dominick Brassan (Jean-Christophe Folly), who lives in a suburb north of Paris, has a touch-and-go relationship with his affable girlfriend, Viveka (Isabelle Carré). As Dominick’s power becomes harder to control, things heat up with Elham (Golshifteh Farahani), a beautiful, blind musician whom Dominick had previously spied on while invisible. The two strike up a relationship with the irony not lost that it takes a blind person to see Dominick for who he truly is.

Cast Jean-Christophe Folly, Isabelle Carré, Golshifteh Farahani, Sami Ameziane, Claudia Tagbo.

Dir Pierre Trividic, Patrick Mario Bernard | 2019 | France | 104 mins| Int Sales Doc and Film

An absorbing slant on super-hero sagas that stealthily works in plenty of ideas about identity and loss. Variety
