Harrison Ford and filmmaker Roman Polanski count thrillers among their best work. Frantic teams, USA Today’s Mike Clark wrote, “an imaginatively cast superstar and the greatest living suspense director in fine form.” Ford plays an American doctor whose wife (Betty Buckley) suddenly vanishes in Paris.
To find her, he navigates a puzzling web of language, locale, laissez-faire cops, triplicate-form bureaucrats and a defiant, mysterious waif (Emmanuelle Seigner) who knows more than she tells. “It is the spirit of Hitchcock that reigns here” (Michael Wilmington, Los Angeles Times). And the consummate skill of Polanski and Ford that’s on dazzling display.
