A teachers' world is turned upside down when her husband, a successful headmaster, is caught embezzling from their own school. Did he do this of his own free will - or has his personality been altered by the tumor lurking in his brain? As the teacher is assisting an attorney in providing a legal defense, recent neuroscience forces her to rethink who her husband really is.
Mia is married to the successful headmaster Frederik, who is caught embezzling from his own school. But did he do this of his own free will - or has his personality been altered by the tumour lurking in his brain? Mia is desperate to uncover what kind of man she is actually married to. If the happiest three years of Mia's life with Frederik were while he had a tumour in his brain, who was she married to before? YOU DISAPPEAR is a movie about the challenges we face as neuroscience forces us to rethink what we are as human beings.Written by
The book Mia is reading to her class is the ending of the existentialistic short story "The Patient" (1962) by Peter Seeberg. A surreal story about a man who looses control of his life as doctors gradually amputate and replace almost every part of his body to the point where he's in doubt of his very excistence. See more »

Wow, what did I just watch?
Try to imagine Ingmar Bergman directing a movie thought out by Alain Resnais! Pretty hard, right? But not after watching this movie. Its digging that deep into the human condition, but also the science behind it. The movie succeeded in making a satisfying whole out of what seems to be opposites: empathy and verfremdung, fiction and facts, science and imagination, real life and theory.
A lot of food for thought here and glowing performances, solid direction and a mind-bending, intelligent screenplay.
