This is the Estonian black metal kung fu comedy you didn't know you needed in your life. In 1973, a trio of Chinese kung fu warriors decimate the USSR-Chinese border, leaving a sole survivor: young Rafael. Beguiled by their gravity-defying martial arts, chic attire and the forbidden Black Sabbath tunes blasting from their boombox, Rafael has a pivotal revelation: he too must become a kung fu fighter. With few places to seek guidance, Rafael's faith leads him to an Eastern Orthodox monastery where the black-clad monks begin his training — but to complete it, he must achieve his greatest feat yet: absolute humility. A comedic cult film in the making, THE INVISIBLE FIGHT is a hilarious mash-up of martial arts tropes and heavy metal iconography propelled by a pulse-pounding score and genuinely thrilling fight choreography that morphs into a satire about finding purpose in life under the oppressive Soviet regime where, Rafael complains, "everything cool is banned." DIR/SCR Rainer Sarnet; PROD Katrin Kissa. Estonia/Greece/Finland/Latvia, 2023, color, 115 min. In Estonian with English subtitles. NOT RATED
