“Invisible City” has become one of Netflix’s new joys, as it introduces audiences to an intriguing story that celebrates Brazilian folklore in a contemporary and irreverent way. Despite the rhythmic and narrative slippages, the introduction of neighborhood mythology into the mainstream scene was a masterstroke from the streaming giant and increased several internal and external concerns, both concerning the original advances of the domestic entertainment business, whether in connection to the future of the series itself.
The narrative combines reality and fantasy and transports us to the current day, at the city of Rio de Janeiro, where a debatable environmental policeman named Eric (Marco Pigossi) deals with the horrible passing of his wife and finds that his death can be linked to a mystical world that lurks in plain sight: which of folk entities.
Deciding to investigate on his own, Eric crosses paths with harmful creatures that are also being hunted by an evil force that has awakened in the ends of the cedar forest and wants revenge. He then meets the powerful Cuca (Alessandra Negrini), disguised under the alter ego of Inês; the formidable Tutu (Jimmy London), nicknamed Tutu Marambá; the sultry Camila (Jessica Cores), who came from the water as Iara and is under Cuca’s tutelage as a pub singer; and many more. Nevertheless, the main thing is that Eric finds out that he is the son of Manaus (Victor Sparapane), a charming guy who, in fact, is the pink dolphin. And what does this mean for your future?
The creation just covers seven episodes, and while doing a good job of synthesizing what might fall into different holes, it invests heavily in continuous, exhausting spins — but constantly reserves time to start out hooks for a possible second time if Netflix renews it.
Who Is Eric? And Who Is Gabriela?
Eric is the son of Boto Cor-de-Rosa, this has been demonstrated to us since the fourth chapter. But to say that he is just the blood of an early and powerful entity is to be overly simplistic after all, he must also be attached, in some way, to the magic that surrounds these personalities. legendary.
Before the season finale, Eric becomes the goal of Dry Body, a mysterious monster who was spat out from his grave after being cast out of Heaven and Hell. The apparition, a rotten spirit of a hunter murdered by Curupira (Fábio Lago), wants revenge on the folklore legends lurking around and, with the body of the protagonist policeman, he is ready to conclude his journey and also to exterminate who hurt you.
Luckily, Cuca and the other characters manage to combine to prevent him from coming out of the individual receptacle, and Eric, in an act of heroism, attempts to kill himself in order to dissuade him rather than his eternal suffering. However, things are not as simple: at Purgatory, he meets with his wife, Gabriela (Julia Konrad), to understand that his journey has only just started and his path is still long. After all, he was part of an early and mythical warrior. But how?
The queries are numerous and the answers virtually non-existent. Gabriela had deep contact with the riparian community and with mythic beliefs, likely trained from the vigorous defender of the things, Ciço (José Dumont), and passing by a Shakespearean metaphysical perception that”there is more between heaven and skies. Property that vain philosophy dreams”. Maybe she had been a part of something larger, perhaps she needed a little push to remind herself that she had been in this world also — and that she had been with us for a little while and also to help her husband and daughter, even indirectly.
And Eric? Well, maybe Raphel Draccon and Carolina Munhóz, two representatives of Brazilian fantasy literature, keep twists and turns for the next episodes and decide to create an origin story for your protagonist. After all, several folk creatures have to appear — and we can only hope that by following in the footsteps of inventions that are similar, they will look and gas that the bold built and warped pantheon.
What To Expect From The 2nd Season?
Among the various questions to be answered, including the path that Eric will take of his”resurrection”. In a way and contributed his deep-link to this unbeatable and dangerous cosmos, it’s possible he insults as the herald of a fantastic war between progress and tradition, death and life, reality and dream that will carry on catastrophic proportions. Your existence as a”warrior,” if that’s the right term to use, is a harbinger of change and may (and should) be used together with care.
And the characters? A number of famous legends have to be brought to the new Netflix series something that has left us thirsty for more. Obviously, playing away from them wasn’t a successful path, which is the reason why the cruel decision to focus on a couple of legends was created. Creatures like the Headless Mule, the Camera, the Boitatá, the Werewolf, and the Negrinho do Pastoreio are a few of the icons that permeate the popular imagination and are well worth highlighting in the seasons to come — without even discuss lesser-known tales that come to life.
In a less engaging environment and perhaps one of the principal issues with the show — we now have the wake surrounding the authorities and political intrigues of”Invisible City”. Ivo (Rafael Sieg), head of the department where Eric works, has to continue to investigate the multiple murder charges of his worker and, who knows, face something that is far beyond his comprehension. Additionally, we have the battle between the riparian community along with the company handled by Dr. Afonso (Rubens Caribé), who has got the support of the populace and will probably resort to other means to get what he needs (and avenge the death of his dad, Antunes).
Is that you? What do you anticipate from the 2nd year of this set?
