Synopsis

The year is 1950. Inseparable, free-thinking sisters Eurídice (18) and Guida (20) live with their conservative parents in Rio de Janeiro. Each girl has her own special dream in life: Eurídice yearns to study piano at the Vienna Conservatory, and Guida dreams of great love. Neither can imagine being without the other, and yet one day they’ll have to go their separate ways… With his stylistically precise period melodrama about sisterly love and women’s indomitable inner strength, renowned Brazilian director Karim Aïnouz gave audiences one of the most emotional experiences at this year’s festival in Cannes, where The Invisible Life was named Best Film in Un Certain Regard.
