The Invisible Boy (Italian: Il ragazzo invisibile) is an Italian fantasy-superhero film directed by the winning director Gabriele Salvatores ('Mediterraneo').
Michele Silenzi is a shy thirteen year old kid who lives with his single mum (a local police inspector). He is often overlooked at school and is picked on regularly by the school bullies. He wants to attend a fancy dress party as the object of his desires, classmate Stella, is going. Unfortunately the fifty Euro note he was to use to buy a superhero costume was stolen by the bullies. He instead has to settle for much cheaper costume that he is told belongs to an obscure Chinese superhero who has mystical powers.
