Review: Griff the Invisible

Griff the Invisible
Dir. Leon Ford
Year: 2011
Aus Rating: M
Running Time: 90mins

It’s inevitable that Griff the Invisible will get compared to Matthew Vaughan’s Kick-Ass and other films of that kind. Doing so commits a great disservice to Griff, as it actually appears to align itself more with Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s bouncy soufflé Amelie. Griff the Invisible is about two socially awkward and self-isolating people whose burgeoning relationship becomes a tale of whimsy and magical fantasy, yet one that never forgets the harsh reality of the cruel world around them. It’s a film that asks potent questions about important topics, but will first and foremost charm viewers with its oddball humour and romanticism. Griff the Invisible is a treat.
