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.

Due to studio pressure, 15 minutes were trimmed from the original running time and a new ending was shot. See more »
When Walker meets with the two American officials in the US Embassy, the boom mic can be seen sneaking into view throughout the shot in the over the shoulder shot of the second man, seated at his desk. It is hidden by the man's profile and the knot of his tie, but as he moves back and forth, its silver shape is clearly visible multiple times. 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.
