Directed by George Sluizer
A young husband descends
into the obsessive corners of his mind when his wife Saskla inexplicably
vanishes while on holiday in France. This cold-blooded psychological
thriller was winner of the 1991 Grand Prize of Dutch Cinema for Best Film.
It succeeds the old-fashioned way, by hooking the viewer on the characters
and murky undercurrents of the story--seducing us into the midst of a
clean, logical nightmare. In the finest tradition of Hitchcock, The
Vanishing will haunt you long after it is over. "It's
unforgettable even if you try to forget it" (San Francisco
Chronicle). Dutch and French with yellow English subtitles.
