Product Description

Eleven men and women born between the wars. Seemingly they have nothing in common except their homosexuality and growing up in a less open, more intolerant society. Now in their 60s and 70s, they tell their personal stories, either shared or alone. These lives are often revealing and pioneering as they recall their personal experiences.

Sébastien Lifshitz, director of PRESQUE RIEN and WILD SIDE, offers us intimate portraits of gay and lesbian life from an older generation who often remain ignored and unheard in a youth-obsessed society.

Winner of the César Award for Best Documentary, and nominated for the BFI London Film Festival Grierson Award, LES INVISIBLES is an affectionate but frank account that is in turn touching and amusing, reflecting our own concerns about growing old.

5.0 out of 5 stars a marvel, quite simply 19 July 2013
By schumann_bg TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Sebastien Lifshitz has made a remarkable film with Les Invisibles, focusing on older gay people in France. It couldn't be more uplifting or thoughtful, both for his interviews and the 11 men and women who feature - we don't hear him ask any questions, but he obviously brings the best out in all his subjects and must have inspired a certain feeling of trust. They are all very interesting and put paid to any idea that being gay and no longer young means that you are on the outside of things; these people all have a sense of life, an intelligence, and a humanity that makes for joyous listening. There's a lesbian couple who run a goat farm, the less" farming" of the two has also become the local mayor, while another man we see driving goats is a genuinely rural free spirit. Then there's a couple from Marseille, where one man was married with five children until he decided his path really was a gay one and met his partner - whose past had been completely different, and very gay - at the age of 71. You see them pottering in their kitchen, sitting having coffee, where their banter, completely natural, speaks of a real contentment, with a spark of humour deriving from some sense of the slight comic absurdity we all inhabit, but here dwelt in with complete affection. We later see them on a boat going out of the Vieux Port in Marseille, one of many superb locations the film takes you to. The opening of the film is startling, as we see another couple who run a bird sanctuary, one of whom is helping a young bird to hatch from its egg using a pair of tweezers. There was a wonderful feeling of gentleness and the miracle and strangeness of life. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 21 Nov 2013

Definitely worth watching. Excellent acting; a real heart warming tale. Wish French made films were more publicised. Give this a go; you won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rewarding 13 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Let me first respond to neilb's review ........ 'acting'! This is a documentary film not a piece of fiction!

It is rewarding to know that people have survived the prejudices against gay relationships and gentleness exhibited by the participants in the documentary if a lesson to us all. Watch it.

My only criticism is the choice of cover for the dvd, which will mislead anyone seeking something salacious ..... they will be very disappointed!

2.0 out of 5 stars too short and shallow in my opinion 13 Feb 2014

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I expected something deeper and longer, the documentary doesnt last long and the testimonies are not analysed as I expected.
