Missing Allen - The Man Who Became A Camera
Germany, 2001, 92 min
This film has all the ingredients to become a hardcore, sensational thriller about a man who disappeared. The story is structured as an investigation that reveals more and more details about the American cameraman who vanished. Was he murdered? Allen’s friend, a German film director, decides to find out what happened to him. As spectators we want the facts, yet we more or less know from the very beginning that Allen Ross has died – because the filmmaker knows this and communicates that feeling to us in the tone of the film that is first of all low key, a bit monotonous and sad.
