A doctor and his wife go to Paris for a medical conference. While showering, his wife disappears. His lack of language, and the odd way she disappeared makes it nearly impossible for him to find any official help in his search as he enters the punk/drug culture to find out what has happened to her.Written by

Frantic (1988) is mentioned in Canadian rock band Barenaked Ladies's song One Week, "Like Harrison Ford I'm getting frantic...". Incidentally this band were also formed in 1988. See more »
When the hotel manager grabs a telephone book to call the concierge at his gym, the phone book clearly has a break in the spine at exactly the page he needs, so that it flops open effortlessly. See more »
A great suspense movie of Roman Polanski in a Hitchcockian style. One of the beloved theme of great master is already here: looking for a vanished person. I think Frantic is one of the movies more successful through the films with the plot located in Paris. Polanski tells us the story with great suspense involving the city of Paris like a character of the film. All movie spends on the Parisian places and rooftops. The music of Ennio Morricone also is a great element of the film success that gives us a great mood. The characters as Harrison Ford and Emmanuel Seigne are superb in their roles too. I think a must see movie if you love great oeuvres of Hitchcock and you love Paris.
