The Invader (French: L'envahisseur) is a 2011 Belgian drama film written and directed by Nicolas Provost.


After Amadou, an illegal African immigrant, arrives in Brussels seeking a better life, his illusions of Europe are quickly shattered. He is exploited and consumed with the drudgery of daily existence, until he meets Agnès, a beautiful business woman, onto whom he projects his hopes and desires. His charisma and persistence seduces Agnès, who quickly wearies of his emotional burdens. When she severs all ties with Amadou, he sinks into destruction and violence.[1]
