Mi Amigo Invisible (My Invisible Friend)

Mi Amigo Invisible


Mi Amigo Invisible (English: My Invisible Friend) is about Tomas, a very shy guy. He spends a lot of time not speaking to anyone in general, and living his routine life. One day, while his parents are away, he suddenly encounters Andy, his so-called “invisible friend”. This “friend” proves to be a reliable one that never quite leaves his side. How will Tomas deal with it?

This short film is a fun look into the life of a very quiet boy who loves to keep to himself. It also has the backdrop of a throwback photo – from the old-school console games, to a grainy kind of quality famous in the old days, to the appearance of Tomas’s invisible friend. It’s a lovely look into the life and realizations of a guy who realizes that he may just need some friends in his life. Beautiful and feel-good.

Have you ever had a hard time making friends at a place? When I was very young, my parents moved abroad. It was hard for me to fit in at first, especially since a lot of classmates didn’t understand my language, but I eventually adapted after a while. All it takes is a little courage, I suppose.

I'm the webmaster and author at Freespanishshortfilms.com. I started this website as a complement to my studies in the Spanish language, but honestly, it just gave me an excuse to watch lots of great short films (like the ones in my author's picks section). I also blog and write short stories.
