Okay, but wildly overrated and predictable.
| Original Score: 3/5

The story doesn't make much sense by the time it's over, but it's awfully scary.

The movie advances in a tantalizing fashion, supplying information obliquely, suggesting as much as it tells, and everything leads up to a climax that is as horrifying as it is probably inevitable.

A brilliantly crafted intellectual thriller with a spring like a trap. It carries you down with it.

Director George Sluizer unfolds his story with non-hysterical -- but nonetheless unnerving -- precision. Vanishing is refreshingly free of manipulative scenes involving running bath water, jagged-edge cutlery and bunnies in the saucepan.

Utterly original, a wonderful little foreign-language gem.
