Tim Krabbe wrote the book that inspired this film, "The Golden Egg." He also wrote the screenplay for "The Vanishing." For many years he was a competitive bicycle racer - hence the presence of two bicycles in this film. He authored what many consider to be the definitive book about bicycle racing, "The Ride." In Holland, his home country, he is a chess grand master and still active in the cycling community. See more »

A married couple stops on holiday at a gas station during a busy summer's day.It's warm and sunny.However the woman vanishes without trace.For the next three years her partner lives in turmoil without knowing what happened on that fateful day.That changes when the abductor contacts him and promises to reveal what happened on that day.Be careful what you wish for, because a mild-mannered chemistry professor hides a terrible secret.Eerie and slow-moving thriller in the vein of Robert Fuest memorable "And Soon the Darkness".I remember seeing it during early 90's on Polish television.The final revelation is genuinely chilling.The main performances are genuinely brilliant and the plot unfolds with intense precision.9 out of 10.
