L’angle mort

Blind Spot

Das von Superhelden überfüllte Blockbuster-Kino unserer Tage bekommt Arthouse-Konkurrenz: Der Pariser Dominick kann sich unsichtbar machen, seit er ein Baby ist. Mit dieser Fähigkeit kann man natürlich Nachbarn ausspionieren, in diesem Fall eine wunderschöne blinde Musikerin. Doch mehr als um die Erforschung übernatürlicher Kräfte geht es dem Regie-Duo Bernard und Trividic um das in noireskes Licht getauchte, persönliche Drama eines musikbegabten Mannes in der Midlife-Krise. Selten hat man Paris melancholischer gesehen - und selten so real. (Roman Scheiber)

Dominick Brassan has the power to turn invisible, but rarely uses it. Instead he has kept it a shameful secret, hidden even from his fiancée. But when his ability to control his gift gets out of hand, his life and relationships will forever be turned inside out. (ACID)§Unlike all the tentpole flicks, @Blind Spot@ is about someone who just wants to be left alone so he can sit and play his cigar-box guitar on the couch. At a time when most films force fantasy heroes down our throats, this mellow riff on the superhero narrative comes across as a welcome alternative. (Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter)
