A Man Vanishes

d. Shohei Imamura
c. Japan
y. 1967

"A Man Vanishes is a really unique film. The film plays with the documentary form of filmmaking and what part a director plays in the forming of a documentary. The film is always interesting, and is consistenly surprising. This film never is even mentioned in the discussion of the director's work. This is unfortunate, due to the fact that on closer examination the film is tackling many different issues. During the filming the wife of the man that is missing, starts to fall in love with the director of the documentary. This is only one of the plot twists in the film. This is my personal favorite of all of Imamura's work. If you can't find this film rent another one, because he is one of the great surprises in the history of japanese film." (IMDB Comment)
