The Invisible Fight

One Week Only!

USSR-China border, 1973. Rafael, is in the army on guard duty when the border falls under attack from flying Chinese kung fu warriors. Utterly fascinated by the long-haired Chinese hippie black-clad kung fu aces flying around blasting forbidden Black Sabbath music from their portable radio Rafael gets struck by a revelation; he too wants to become a kung fu warrior. Faith leads Rafael to an Orthodox monastery where the black-clad monks do their training but his road to achieving the almighty power of humility required is long, winding and full of kick-ass adventures.

2024, 114 Minutes, Directed by Rainer Sarnet, Not Rated

  • “The strangest Estonian Black Metal Kung Fu movie you’ll see this year, guaranteed! Weird enough to amuse those looking for a gonzo good time…a zany martial arts comedy that could attract cult status.”

    - Peter Debruge, VARIETY
  • “Deliciously weird…crafted so lovingly with a charming earnestness.”

    – Charles Lyons Burt, SLANT MAGAZINE
  • “Like Estonia’s answer to Nicolas Cage… Rainer Sarnet’s hard-rocking, genre-crossing kung fu comedy sends a holy fool on an (un)orthodox spiritual journey in occupied Estonia.”

    – Anton Bitel, PROJECTED FIGURES
  • “Badass…a kooky martial arts flick meets Estonian comedy set in the Soviet-era past. Mega-enjoyable because it’s so boldly original. ‘The Invisible Fight’ rocks!”

    – Alex Billington, FIRSTSHOWING.NET
  • “A wacky, charismatic protagonist… a strange mashup of genre and influences, [and] an unabashed throwback for Hong Kong action films of the 70s and 80s...”
