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.

Harrison Ford thought that "Frantic" was a misleading title for the film as the script didn't have a frantic pace. He suggested that "Moderately Disturbed" would be a more appropriate title. Roman Polanski wasn't amused. See more »

For this film to qualify as excellent, not much is needed. Maybe a little more...I don't know...temper? Anyway, Ford is brilliant as Richard Walker whose wife is kidnapped in Paris. It's his acting that makes up for a somewhat simple plot. Just look at the scene where he talks to some policeman over the phone. "With an S for 's***head'!"
