Rio de Janeiro, 1950. Eurídice and Guida are sisters who live with their conservative parents, and they are inseparable. Growing up with the strict rules of their father, they both have big dreams: the talented Eurídice fantasizes about a career as a pianist, the adventurous Guida hopes to find true love.
After an unexpected, dramatic event, the sisters are separated and they lose sight of each other. As the years pass, they build a life of their own. But in the time that they both pursue their dreams, they never hope to find each other again. The Invisible Life or Eurídice Gusmão is a warm-blooded, passionate drama about the inseparable bond between two sisters and their search for happiness. Director Karim Aïnouz turned Martha Batalha’s novel of the same name into a visually overwhelming film that was awarded the Un Certain Regard prize in Cannes this year. The Invisible Life or Eurídice Gusmão was also selected as the Brazilian Oscar submission.
