(dir. George Sluizer) (1988)
A Dutch couple on their summer holidays fight, then make-up. She goes to get some things from the service station shop and that’s it – gone. From there, we work backwards, into the dark canals of human activity.
Forget the 1993 remake; this French/Dutch original version is brilliant – funny, creepy; one of the best studies of men compelled to plumb life’s mysteries, with fatal results.
