Spoorloos: a film review

It’s a deceptively simple story: Rex and Saskia are taking a roadtrip, when Saskia disappears from a busy roadside station. For years, Rex wonders how she could vanish so thoroughly, so suddenly… and then he has a chance to find out.

Played out with excruciating deliberation, Spoorloos juxtaposes mundanity with an oppressive intensity that is suffocating to watch.
