The Vanishing of Pató
(La Scomparsa di Pató)

In Italian with English Subtitles

If you think Detective Montalbano's hometown of Vigata can get a little nutty sometimes, you should see it in 1890!

Based on the historical mystery novel by Andrea Camilleri, The Vanishing of Pató is set in the same seaside town that Detective Montalbano fans know and love. It's a story of the desperate search for one of Vigata's most upstanding citizens - a man who vanishes right after his appearance in the annual Passion Play. South collides with North as a local Sicilian carabiniere teams up with a Neapolitan police officer to unlock the mystery of his disappearance. Despite their cultural, linguistic and personal differences the two men have enough in common to forge an alliance which is as comic as it is productive. Together, they wade through local politics, personal agendas and the general wackiness that is Vigata to find out what really happened to the banker and father of two who mysteriously disappeared. And perhaps most surprising of all, the policeman and the carabiniere find that they can trust each other more than they can trust anyone else in Vigata. Detective Montalbano fans will recognize it all: Sicilian characters, Italian culture at its highest (and lowest) and the breathtaking countryside of southern Italy.
