A body has been found in the search for missing man Stuart Cooper. The Australian War Memorial was voted the number one landmark in Australia by travellers in the 2016 Trip Advisor awards. The camera frames cigarette smoke and then pans right and dissolves to a dinner party attended by Celandine and her first husband Edward, to which Mallory just happened to be there stalking his “shy” (victim). When Mallory returns home in the beginning we are introduced to Celandine through a glamorous photo of her on the grand piano (with a smaller photo to the left), with the camera accentuating the moment with a liquid like dolly back movement in which a reflection of the photo is also seen on the piano top. All of these possibilities are removed by the more linear structure of V2. In the kitchen behind the seated Mallory we see a Modigliani-like painting of a woman who gives the impression of illness or frailty, perhaps a comment on Celandine (who is framed with the painting in the kitchen scene). Although a crime melodrama about a contract killer becoming emotionally spent and experiencing a sort of existential crisis (which ties it to other crime films with similar existentialist anti-heroes, The Driver, The Thief, and Drive), thematically The Disappearance is about memory, in a Proustian sense, where events, objects in the present trigger past memory: a dress recalls his wedding day; a car crash invokes an accident with Celandine’s son; handling his gun triggers the moment when Celandine first found his gun in his coat pocket, etc.).

According to the Canadian feature Film index: 1913-1985, although the film was shot in 1977 (and played at the 1977 San Sebastian Film Festival) it was only released theatrically in London, UK in 1981 and in Edmonton, Canada in 1982, and Toronto, Canada in 1983. Deverell, played with menace and authority by Christopher Plummer, is a sort of alter ego/double for Mallory, and this theme of the double is introduced earlier in an eerie moment where Mallory is being threatened in his sleeping by a gun bearing intruder, who ends up being Mallory’s dream double. She does not appear again until the end of the film. Photographs (of Celandine, her dead son Dominic, Mallory, and her first husband Edward) are present elsewhere and everywhere in the apartment (on the bedroom night tables and dresser, for example). In V3 nearly every scene has a temporal shift between present and past/memory, some easily accessed, others more complex and ambiguous, cementing the film as a serious treatment of the theme of memory. As Mallory puts the phone back on the hook he glances up and looks off-screen, which cues a cut to his point-of-view shot of the photograph of Celandine on the piano. Only now the phone rings on without an answer on the other end and he hangs up and drives back home to find his wife missing. For example, the noted 3000 release limit (which according to a Digital Bits article is a limit set by the licensing agreement they have with the studios), the high retail price, and the lack of special features (they usually provide only an isolated sound track as a feature).

Twilight Time (an arm of Screen Archives Entertainment) is a new (since 2011) independent DVD/BD/Audio label that specializes in classic, odd and forgotten films (and movie soundtracks). In his interview Cooper claims that this film, made the way it was, with its challenging narrative structure, bleak and unresolved ending (we never know who kills Mallory), and somewhat opaque characters, could never have been made in the US.

Having watched all three versions, my preference is for V3, the 91 minute cut; again, the difference between watching it in high definition, with the colors popping out of the screen and the wonderful detail in the natural scenes of water, sunsets, and snow may unfairly bias the 91 minute version; but the additional scenes of plot in V1 don’t seem to add much to the over-all impact, while the abrupt opening of the 91 minute version adds to the mystery of Celandine’s disappearance. We assume the scene is in the present and the voice a subjective internal voice-over, but then the shot cuts to a long shot of a silhouetted Celandine standing nude outside the bathroom, establishing this as a flashback. Unlike other labels that may have a more restricted focus, Twilight Time does not seem to have a set preference, outside of a preponderance of titles from the 1960s and 1970s, which gives them the freedom to release anything they see fit. A sense of déjà vu opens the scene with an almost identical shot of Mallory walking along the cement half-covered embankment (only the color of his coat changes). (22”). Skip to site content Skip to main menu. In one scene we see Mallory lying in bed flipping through a glamour magazine featuring a spread of his wife. Mallory notices this and looks off-screen cueing us to its new location: Mallory’s photo has replaced Celandine’s on the piano. The penultimate line we hear Mallory say to Celandine in this final scene where he returns home to find his wife there waiting for him points to this direction: “Death is a country without memory…dead people cannot remember a god damned thing.”. Of the budget $200,000 was provided by the Canadian Film Development Corporation (CFDC). The Disappearance is based on the novel by Derek Marlowe Echoes of Celandine, and the screenplay was written by British writer-director Paul Mayersberg, whose more illustrious writing credits include two films by master montagist Nicolas Roeg, The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976), and Eureka (1983), and Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence (1983, Nagisa Oshima). Her expression is such that we do not know if she is shocked, surprised, or merely reacting to what she expected. Version 2: An unauthorized (by director Stuart Cooper) shortened, re-edited version that runs 81 minutes and attempts to put the narrative into a more coherent order by reducing the complexity of the narrative by coding the instances of non-linearity as flashbacks; and reducing their frequency and length. In V3 the contract hit we see at the beginning in V1 and V2 in a ship’s hull is intercut later at the ten minute mark, triggered by the arrival of his contact Burbank (David Warner) and his words, “We were very pleased with the man on the boat.” We learn this first victim was a fellow assassin who became “unreliable.” In another minor difference, in V1 this first victim speaks a few dying words to Mallory just before he is shot a second time (“You shouldn’t have done that”) while he remains silent in V2 and V3. When Mallory goes out for breakfast food and is ambushed by two gun shots, the scene cuts to a close-up of Celandine responding to the gunshot.
