Comedy is indubitably an effective way of getting us to sit up and take notice of things we might not want to acknowledge. Social comment, in this case on the failure of the system to find a place for women who have been left homeless by the economic crisis, is the motivation of a director who, as he illustrated in Discount, is interested in exposing the ills of our modern Western world. A day center must close its doors, but its social workers remain committed to the incredible women who come here every day and will go beyond the call of duty to find them work, even if it means doctoring their curriculums and omitting some of the more colorful episodes in their lives. Petit takes fiction into the realm of the documentary and achieves memorable moments of spontaneity and credibility by casting professional actress alongside amateurs. Can the soulless logic of the system be overthrown by this army of stalwart women? Moving at times, inflammatory at others, but always entertaining, Invisibles opens our eyes, but makes sure we have a good laugh into the bargain.
