FRANTIC
1988, Warner Bros., 120 min, France/USA, Dir: Roman Polanski

Harrison Ford, in one of his best performances, plays an American surgeon visiting Paris for a medical conference when his wife vanishes from their hotel room. Receiving no help from local authorities, he follows his only clue - a piece of errant luggage - to a streetwise young woman (Emmanuelle Seigner) who also lost her bag at the airport. Featuring a tense Ennio Morricone score, this is a thriller worthy of Alfred Hitchcock, and one of Polanski’s most underrated films.
