1965年,日本某公司塑料批發推銷員大島裁公幹期間神秘失踪,即將與之步入婚姻殿堂的早川佳江分外焦急,四處尋找卻沒有線索。得知此情況的導演今村昌平邀請演員露口茂作為紀錄片主持人協助調查,而佳江亦辭去工作,隨攝製組前往。

眾人首先探訪大島日常因公接觸的底層手工業勞動者,卻發現其與佳江心中那個老實、忠厚的男人形象完全相反。現實中的大島儼然一個攪在金錢、女人以及權力的漩渦中還樂此不疲的勢利小人。隨著調查深入,真相愈加撲朔迷離,大島究竟身在何處?是否死於親人的謀殺?哪一個才是真實的大島?

It is difficult to summarise Shōhei Imamura’s legendary 1967 film, the first picture produced by Japan’s countercultural Art Theatre Guild (ATG). Is it a documentary that turns into a fiction? A narrative film from beginning to end? A record of improvisation populated with actors or non-actors (and in what proportion)? Is it the investigation into a true disappearance, or a work merely inspired by actual events? Even at the conclusion of its final movement, A Man Vanishes [Ningen jōhatsu, or The Unexplained Disappearance of a Human Being] mirrors its subject in deflecting inquiries into the precise nature of its own being.

A middle-class salaryman has gone missing — possibly of his own accord — and a film crew has set out to assemble a record of the man and the events surrounding his disappearance. As the crew meticulously builds a cachet of interviews with the man’s family and lovers, their subject and his motivations become progressively more elusive — until the impossibility of the endeavour seems to transform the very film itself.
