The Invisible Children of Love is a multi-lingual (English/Bengali) film by Shubho released in 2003.



The Invisible Children of Love is a love story set against a small town. The narrator tells the story of his coming into being – how his father and his mother fell in love. Through many fleeting events and passing characters the story moves forward weaving a complex fabric of the small town life, as we follow the lovers in their intimate private settings. But contrary to expectations, the lovers don't meet: the narrator reveals his true identity - he is the unborn child of the ill-fated lovers.

Style & Technique

The film is shot almost entirely in high contrast Black & White with only few shots in color in between. It is characterized by a jerky (and sometimes deliberately shabby) editing with insertion of random images to induce a feeling of the bustle of life in a small town. A strange treatment of passing of time and fragmented characterization make up for a highly stylized narrative. The narration itself is full of short digressions going away from the central theme to conjure fleeting images of everyday occurrences in a small town. The cinematography makes use of extreme close-ups and low-angle shots which add an abstract quality to the film.
