On her way to church in the hazy alpine village of Avechot, the quiet 15-year-old, Anna Lou, daughter of a religious couple, vanishes into thin air, never to return home. To aid in the investigation of this puzzling case is summoned the fastidious Detective Vogel with the questionable methods; however, amidst a full-scale media storm and half-baked leads, no one is above suspicion, villagers and newcomers alike. But is Anna Lou's troubling disappearance a case of an adolescent tantrum only days before Christmas, or is there a wolf in sheep's clothing, hiding in the otherwise peaceful community?Written by
The film's nomination for a David di Donatello in the Best Original Screenplay category was a source of confusion among critics and fans, as director Donato Carrisi ostensibly adapted his own novel, first published in 2015. This led Carrisi to clarify that the screenplay is technically original because it predates the book, even though the film came out later. See more »
Someone took her. Let's stop tiptoeing around it and call a spade a spade, or we'll waste time, and that time belongs to Anna Lou.

The Plot In The Fog
A handsome thriller, with several familiar and welcome faces, that only really falls down at the end, which seems like twist upon twist upon twist just for the sake of surprise, with characters not acting in a believable or relatable manner. The very final twist, especially, is badly handled, with not enough investment in, or knowledge of, the character to give it any real power or meaning.
For all of that, it's still an enjoyable and engrossing watch up till then, so I don't feel I can in good conscience give it less than a 7.
