Ever wonder what goes on in the mind of a kidnapper when he is planning and committing the act? Here's your chance. The kidnapper doesn't run around with a large knife or axe, he does not grin maniacally, he doesn't have a scary tone of voice, he looks entirely like an ordinary man. You wouldn't pick up out of a crowd as a dangerous man, yet he becomes more and more menacing, precisely because of ... read more

For years, I have heard that this movie was one the best Dutch movies ever made so I was really dying to see it. So, I have been waiting all those years and even though I have been living in the Netherlands for almost 10 years, for some weird reasons, it was never on TV whereas the disappointing American remake has been broadcasted at least 3 times already... Anyway, I wasn't disappointed. Indeed,... read more

Young lovers Rex and Saskia are on holiday. They stop at a busy service station and Saskia disappears. Rex dedicates the next three years trying to find her. Then he receives some postcards from her abductor, who promises to reveal what has happened to Saskia.

25 From 88: My Favorite Films Of 1988 (25 movies items)

Spending the next couple of years trying to balance his life with moving on and at the same time, obsessing over her disappearance, a clue to his investigation finally comes to light. The Vanishing is a great movie from the Netherlands but set in France that I love talking about with anyone else who has watched this. And I could "

November Movie Journal - Xanadon't (27 movies items)

" This Dutch thriller will bring Hitchcock to mind in certain respects, but that's really beside the point, nor does it quite get at the animal we have on our hands here. The narrative is ingeniously constructed for optimal emotional effect and the film's frames are fused with visual cues and imagery that will keep viewers' minds stimulated and engaged in ways that most films don't begin to achieve. Don't be fooled though; The Vanishing is not interested in being your friend. This movie has got"
