Storyline

Six members of a North Atlantic fishing crew, whose boat has just sunk while out on a fishing trip, have managed to take refuge in two of the lifeboats, which they have tied together in their vow to stay together as they try to make their way back to safety. They have also managed to salvage many supplies, including some food and water, which falls to regimented Gib to ration according to Captain Gerald's timetable. With only a compass in hand and no sight of either land or other marine vessels, they can only guess where they are, which Gerald does, believing rightly or wrongly that at the speed and frequency they are rowing, they should hit land in six or seven days barring any unforeseen circumstances. For good or bad, Merv and "Young" Dickie further have each other emotionally as father and son, the devout Christian dad who is tough on his naive son, for who this trip is his first in his want to be a fishing boat captain his own right in the future. Despite their precarious ... Written by Huggo

Wonderful and Moving
11 November 2013 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Wonderful film - the story was powerful and the characters were both rich and subtle - their back stories were explored enough that I was interested and became attached, but it didn't go into too much detail about any of them. This kept things in the here and now - which was a theme throughout.

It was so nice to watch a film that didn't have a soundtrack! I really felt like I was on the water with the guys just hearing their voices, the ores and I think at one point, some whales. And I think music would have taken me out of that. I loved how there was so much silence. Silence is underused and I guess underrated as a cinematic tool, but a great decision was made here to let it carry the film throughout - as if it actually WAS the soundtrack. The silence was both beautiful and lonely. It must have been a challenge to make a film without music or special effects, having only a few characters and props - and still have it be engaging throughout. But it absolutely was.

The film does a great job of creating a feeling of being lost and disoriented with time and space - just another way the film makes us feel like we're a part of this journey.

On a purely entertainment level The Disappeared is a compelling survivalist story. But on a deeper level the film made me think about all the fishermen (and women?) who have become lost at sea. And to take it one step further there are unfortunate events and tragedies that happen all the time that we don't hear or think much about. And this film can get us thinking about those too.

Highly recommended.
