I personally thought that this film was beautiful in the way it portrayed the detachment of the two characters (Nick and Annie) from their surroundings. Nick, who had lost his father and lives with an emotionally suppressed mother, lives in a grand house and is an honor roll student. His one and only friend ends up causing Nick's near death experience. In contrast, Annie lives with an uncaring family (with the exception to her little brother) in a low income home, and though she has a boyfriend and two followers, they have no loyalty towards her. Even when the two of them get in trouble, the schools simply dismisses one for being an honor student and the other for being a hopeless case. In effect, both Nick and Annie are invisible.
The setting and atmosphere supports the mood of the entire film: the lonliness and isolation of the characters. Through this agonizing lonliness, Nick and Annie are able to communicate subconsciously. Despite the fact that Annie has killed (or put in a coma) Nick, he empathizes with her and the two bond spiritually.
There is also a contrast of good and evil btwn Nick and Annie. Nick, despite his essay-selling little side business, is portrayed in general (esp. as a spirit) as a warm and understanding person while Annie is portrayed as a spiteful and evil girl. However, through Nick's soothing and sympathy, Annie begins to seek atonement for her actions.
Overall, the film really is about being invisible, not only as a spirit, but also as to how physically alive humans can feel invisible through ignorance, neglect, or just lack of interest or time.
Justin Chatwin who has had parts in the films "Taking Lives" and "War of the Worlds" does a good job as the good-looking Nick Powell who want to go to school in London to study writing while his mother wants him to become a lawyer. Chatwin may not have the greatest depth as an actor, but he comes across warm and likeable in the film, despite the fact that he's making money by selling term papers. Margarita Levieva who was in the TV show "The Vanished" plays Annie Newton, a hard-edged girl who brawls her way through a difficult home life and puts her in league with some rowdy friends. Levieva did a nice job in this major role, showing depth between the violent temper and her softer feminine side. Marcia Gay Harden who won Best Supporting Actress Oscar for "Pollock" in 2000 and was nominated in the same category for "Mystic River" in 2003 plays Diane Powell, Nick's widowed mother whose business sense predominates over being emotionally sensitive.Read more ›
An interesting little bit of info about the filming is that in the scene where Annie threatens to push Marcus off the cliff, they both had thin wires around one ankle in case of a fall. That must have been intense when Margarita actually gave Alex that little shove!
Alex has a way of changing himself so completely for each role - the way he looks and talks and acts - even down to shaving his head for the role and running ten miles a day, as he figured Marcus would have worked out in prison before he was recently paroled. This film was done in 2006, before Alex became well known for his roles on The Shield and Moonlight, and nobody would have guessed that he has a strong Austalian accent. I have all of Alex's work on DVD and I have seen him do so many accents - all impeccable.
If you are reading this and wondering why I am talking mostly about Alex O'Loughlin, it is because he truly is the highlight of this movie. I can watch The Invisible over and over just to see Alex doing such an excellent job as Marcus. I would recommend this movie and it makes an excellent gift.

|This version is censored, it's not full Director's Cut...||
Yeah I've bought both the dvd and blu ray and it doesn't have severel scenes that make the film better. What's ironic is that I've found the movie on youtube and found those scenes intacted.
