Review

Surgeon Harrison Ford and his wife (Betty Buckley) arrive in Paris for a convention but she mysteriously disappears. Ford finds she may have been kidnapped and a clue arrives in the form of a gorgeous Parisienne (Emmanuelle Seigner) whose suitcase Ford picked up by mistake at the airport.

Director Roman Polankski stirs up a storm of tense moments and great action, and Ford is super as the everyday bloke thrown in at the deep end.
