TIFF 2021: “Lo Invisible”


Rating: 3 out of 5.

We all know that if a mental illness goes untreated, it can get severe and escalate to the point where it gets hard to manage. Therefore, paying attention to signs, being self-conscious and recognize those symptoms if we feel them is important.

Luisa (script co-writer Hoeneisen) is one of those individuals no one would like to mess with. Especially when she requires a mental check-up. But with or without that, she is a difficult person to deal with anyway. After being released from a psychiatric clinic, the woman returns to her spacious and luxurious home where all the servants are ready to serve her. But the question is, was she really ready to return back to society?

“How am I gonna be, if I was told I tried to kill my own child”, Luisa says to her friend, when the woman was concerned about her well being. It was at that moment when the characteristics of Luisa begins to unfold. But that is just the beginning of Luisa’s true self showing up, capturing the moment of desperation and breaking free. What will matter most is her freeing herself from the insanity or bringing it back to where it all started – unhinged, uncontrolled and unpredictable Luisa.

The beauty of this film is that it does concentrate on Luisa’s mental health alone. It tries to show who she really is. She is obviously independent, strong and wants to be trusted. But as you watch her, the trust will slowly fade away to open up a path to the woman, beware, no path should be crossed with at all.
