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

The Krytron prop has "RP & GB" printed on it below the "nuclear" symbol--Roman Polanski and Gerard Brach, the writers. See more »
Sondra's date of birth on the form at the US Embassy (14 April 1942) does not match what is shown on the closeup of her passport (3 July 47). The passport is Betty Buckley's actual birthday. See more »
It's amazing that people have just forgotten about this movie. Roman Polanski is an amazing director. I had only seen Rosemary's Baby and The Pianist prior to this, the latter being a hundred times better than the former. I was fairly disappointed with Rosemary's Baby. It was dubbed one of the best horror films of all time, and it never ever scared me. Frantic, labelled a thriller, delivers all that it promises to. I was on the edge of my seat for pretty much the whole movie. There was great ambience to all the scenes. Polanski definitely knows how to set a mood. Emannuelle Seigneur was fascinating as Ford's sexy opposite. I was very very impressed with her comic timing and cannot figure out why she hasn't been in anything else after Frantic. Terrific 9/10.
