The Vanishing of a woman making a quick pit stop during a road trip through France causes her boyfriend to spiral into an obsessive quest for truth in this acclaimed 1988 Dutch thriller. Can an eccentric chemistry teacher who was conducting a social experiment at the same gas station provide closure three years later? And why did critics who loved this existential mystery make the 1993 Hollywood remake with Jeff Bridges and Sandra Bullock disappear?
