Product Description

Ryan Kwanten of TV s True Blood stars in this charming, quirky and totally unpredictable romantic comedy about the superhero in all of us. Griff , a shy and awkward office worker by day, finds escape from his ordinary life by assuming the identity of a fantastic superhero each night. Griff s secret is jeopardized when he meets Melody, a cute but unconventional daydreamer. She quickly becomes fascinated by his idiosyncrasies, which are equaled only to her own.

Amazon.com

True Blood's Ryan Kwanten puts his Louisiana accent aside for this offbeat return to his Australian roots. Kwanten plays Griff, a Sydney customer-liaison agent by day who dons a rubber superhero suit by night in actor-turned-director Leon Ford's sweet, semi-surrealistic romantic comedy. If Griff proves successful in his self-appointed role as nocturnal protector, no one ever thanks him for his services, but he persists in the belief that it's his responsibility (Ford suggests that these successes may all be in his head). Furthermore, his office coworkers are a shallow lot, especially Tony (Toby Schmitz), who bullies him for sport, so Griff goes it alone until his brother, Tim (Patrick Brammall), introduces him to his sort-of-girlfriend Melody (Maeve Dermody, projecting equal parts warmth and beauty), a hardware store clerk who lives with her parents, believes in parallel worlds, and describes herself as an experimentalist. Melody pursues Griff, despite her mother's entreaties to stick with Tim in hopes that marriage will result. Meanwhile, Griff becomes obsessed with invisibility after his boss tells him he's too visibly uncomfortable with his colleagues. When Melody discovers his secret life, she helps him to construct an outfit designed to evade detection, but by getting involved, she only encourages the delusion that he's more special than everyone else--including her. If Griff the Invisible begins in cuteness and quirk, it ends in a more emotionally believable place. Extras include a featurette, video diary, and set tour, plus deleted scenes and commentary from Ford, Brammall, and cowriter Nicole O'Donohue. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

By day Griff has the usual office job where he is bullied by his workmates and is only ever visited by his brother who tries to make Griff conform to society. By night Griff takes on the alternate persona as the town's superhero protecting the city streets. Griff is invisible to the world until he meets his brother's new girlfriend, Melody who turns Griff's life upside down with her eccentricities that only match his own.

Griff the Invisible is a very touching story that blends the lines between reality and illusion that is definitely worth at least one watch and I would highly recommend it. The story isn't too similar but if you like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind this movie is definitely worth a chance.

I loved "Griff The Invisible" ! This film explores the idea that, if perception is reality, then reality is subjective. Wonderfully acted. Beautifully made. Fabulous soundtrack.

Very funny! It was fun, novel, exciting, and anything except boring. I have never seed a movie quite like this one and it was refreshing.

SPOILER ALERT! I don't try to give away the story plot, but in any review there is a chance of learning things you may not want to know.

This movie was very disappointing to me. I'm not exactly sure how it could have been done better, but luckily that isn't my job. I didn't understand what was going on at first, which, for me, led to the inability to enter the fantasy world and enjoy the film. And then once I did understand what was going on, it was all taken away from me and I was left feeling empty. The movie tries to make up for it at the end, but it was too little, too late.

The cast is marvelous, and had this somehow been done differently I think it could have been a good movie. But as it is, it is just weak.

This movie has great acting and a great story. The two main characters are the type of people we don't normally get to see in films, and this was one of the reasons I loved the movie so much. Another thing that stands out to me is that the characters retain these weird personalities right through the end of the movie; which is kind of comforting. (In other movies you might see this type of character being changed into a 'normal' person by the end of the movie).

Ryan Kwanten really did a great job and was completely believable as a strange and meek type of person. I was very surprised at his performance since I'm used to seeing him in True Blood as a completely different type of character.

The music in this movie is OUTSTANDING. I kept finding myself making mental notes to look up what artist sang this song or that song. I wish there was a soundtrack I could buy from this movie.

I definitely recommend this movie if you are tired of the same old same old romantic comedies coming out of Hollywood lately.

Format: DVD
Here's a quirky, touching little film that accomplishes so much more than just about every instantly forgettable multi-million dollar blockbuster. Griff is an Australian office worker, shy & awkward, who lives a fantasy life as a superhero -- much to the frustration & concern of his older brother Tim, a well-meaning but clueless member of the social mainstream. Melody is Tim's sort-of date, who speaks of living in a bubble where she can talk to people, but never truly communicate with them ... until she meets Griff, who is clearly a kindred spirit.

Simply on the level of a sweet romantic comedy, this works wonderfully. The two leads are attractive, and the viewer feels for them, waiting for that moment when mutual love makes itself undeniably known. Griff has to deal with an obnoxious office bully & his own social anxiety; Melody appreciates her loving parents but knows they simply can't understand her (though her mother surprises her & the viewers as well toward the end of the film).

But there's a lot more going on here, at least for those with eyes to see: questions of what constitutes both normality & reality -- the tendency to pathologize eccentricity, or a different experience of the world that doesn't harm anyone else -- the rigid & often unforgiving nature of the conforming mainstream. Yet it doesn't shy away from the possibility that our two young lovers may be dangerously past the point of simple eccentricity, either.

In a deleted scene, Melody talks about the billions of realities that exist within each human being, in the universe of the individual mind. This reminds us that everyone, including ourselves, never experiences the world around us precisely as everyone else is -- there are always shades & tones that are peculiar to us.

It's tough to relate how excited I was getting while watching this. Is it as good as I think it is or is it somehow connecting with something in me that doesn't allow me to see its faults? One way or the other I liked it tremendously.

Here's the scoop. Griff is a very mild mannered person by day, performing some nondescript job in some nondescript office. He has an array of sophisticated monitoring gear to keep an eye on his neighborhood. If he sees evil doers doing evil, he gets into his superhero suit and takes care of business. It seems he's had some trouble with this in the past and his older brother is present to make certain that doesn't happen again. Griff falls for his bro's kind-of girlfriend, and she for him. Doo-doo hits the fan.

Where to begin. The characters. I liked the way they were written. Griff is so mild mannered during the day it hurts seeing him get the smelly end of the stick at the hand of his workmate. Melody. She sees the world differently than most others and she feels alone because of it. But she sees the real Griff and knows this might be her shot at happiness. Griff's brother Tim means well, but he doesn't realize what a dweeb he really is. Melody's parents mean well. They have good hearts, but they don't have a clue where their daughter is coming from. I liked the way all these people interact with each other.

Then there's the story. This unfolded for me really well. I liked the way the plot was doled out. It kept me in the game, but the third act sprouted some dark things that scared me. How much of this was really happening and how much was delusion concocted by people who simply cannot come to terms with the day to day existence we all have to put up with? Yes we're happy the two have found one another but at what expense?
