Extras:
- George Sluizer
in this new video interview, director George Sluizer recalls how he acquired the rights to Tim Krabbe's novel and the script that emerged from it (apparently there were some major disagreements between the director and the writer), his initial encounter with Johanna ter Steege (Saskia), his interactions with actors Gene Bervoets and Bernard-Pierre Donnadieu (director Sluizer wanted Jean-Louis Trintignant to play the main protagonist, but he was not available), and discusses the shooting process and some of the unique themes in the film. The interview was conducted exclusively for Criterion in the director's home in France in May 2014. In English, not subtitled.
- Johanna ter Steege
in this new video interview, actress Johanna ter Steege recalls how she was approached to play Saskia, and discusses her contribution to The Vanishing and its success. The film won Best Supporting Actress Award at the European Film Awards and Golden Calf Award for Best Film at the Nederlands Film Festival in 1988. The interview was conducted exclusively for Criterion in Amsterdam in June 2014. In English, not subtitled.
