The disappearance of Finbar

Edition 1996
105' - 1996 - Mystery, Drama - Dialogue: Mandarin, Finnish, English, Swedish
Director: Sue Clayton Composer: Davy Spillane With: Luke Griffin, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Sean Lawlor
Finbar lives in a bizarre small community of houses that are shadowed by a giant flyover which sails over their heads on its way to a Europe they know nothing about. Finbar is their great hope, but one night, goaded by the jealousy of his friends, he climbs up the towering structure, stares at the teeming road beneath... and disappears. No body is found, and it is up to Danny, his reluctant best friend, to discover what actually happened amongst the maze of clues, false trails, recriminations and memories. Danny's insane journey through the snow, his encounters with crazy Finns, love, passion and tango, show us what holds people together and what tears them apart.
