Based on the historical novel by Andrea Camilleri, The Vanishing of Patò is set in Vigàta, the town that Detective Montalbano fans know and love...but it's 1890, Easter weekend. Two rival investigators look into the disappearance of Antonio Patò, a quiet accountant who vanishes after his performance as Judas in the town's annual Passion Play.
There is nothing overly special about this Italian 1 hour and 30 minute (IMDB lists it as a 35 minute short, but it was on TV for 1 hour, 30 minutes, without commercials) which comes with English sub-titles. It is a common "who-dunnit" comedy-drama that is more entertaining than most and keeps the viewer wondering what is happening and who is responsible. As typical, everything comes together towards the end. There is light humor and especially good acting. I watched the TV version, so I cannot tell if there is any offensive material. The scenery is beautiful and the sets are colorful. The last scene with the suspect is my favorite when he fixes his gaze (I won't tell you what he looks at, but it is a hoot).
