In June 1943, as the Nazis declared the Reich judenfrei (“free of Jews”), thousands of Jews were living in hiding or under false identities in Berlin. In this suspenseful and fascinating film, filmmaker Claus Raefle focuses on the stories of several young people (nicknamed “U-Boats” or “submarines”) who, through various means, attempted to evade capture. The Invisibles brings narrative and emotional intensity to these astonishingly true stories by using a hybrid of documentary and highly accomplished drama (gorgeously photographed by Joerg Widmer, whose credits include Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life and Wim Wenders’s Pina). Starring Maximilian Mauff (Bridge of Spies), Florian Lukas (Good Bye Lenin!), and Andreas Schmidt (The Counterfeiters).
