Movie Quote(s):
  • [last lines] Rex Hofman: Saskia!
  • Raymond Lemorne: You see, Mr Hoffman. For me, dying is not the worse thing.
Movie Trivia:
  • The central plot of the film (and the novel on which it is based) is from an archetype Urban Legend related to the Paris Exposition of 1901. A woman and her daughter travel to Paris for the exhibition, and whilst the woman unpacks, the daughter goes to a nearby shop. When she returns to the hotel, the mother is gone, and no one in the hotel remembers having seen her. The idea also formed for the basis for Alfred Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes (1938), Terrence Fisher's So Long at the Fair (1950), Robert Fuest's And Soon the Darkness (1970) and Philip Leacock's Dying Room Only (1973) (TV).
  • The film was submitted to the Academy Awards in 1988 as the official Dutch entry for Best Foreign Language Film. However, the AMPAS disqualified it because they determined that there was too much French dialog in the film to warrant it being a Dutch candidate.
  • SPOILER: Director George Sluizer actually filmed an alternative ending in which Raymond Lemorne (played by Bernard-Pierre Donnadieu) was caught by the police. This ending was never used or shown as Sluizer thought it would lessen the impact of what had gone before.
