Roman polanski and Harrison Ford are superb
Roman Polanski does it again as director . Harrison Ford at his best on a very challenging role ( second after Regarding Henry ). Very attractive Emmanuelle Seigner as a mistery girl Michelle . Polanski returned to her again as a mistery girl in " The Ninth Gate ", and she is exellent choice for that role .
American doctor (Harrison Ford) comes to convention in Paris with his wife ( kind of second honeymoon ). One of their bags was mixed up in the airport , but everything should be allright...they think . Doctor ordered some food and stepped into the shower . When he gets out...his wife is gone . No trace , no note...just gone . He has to find her but doesn't even knows where to start . The feeling of this crasyness of normal life flushed down the toilet within a second...made me feel this horrow straight in my heart . We got everything in this film : the secrets , the terrorists , the Paris , the dead body , CIA , the police , the mistery girl and the exellent music .But not too much . Everything mixed in perfect balance .
I watched this film so many times , but never get tired of it . Even that this DVD doesn't have special futures , a must have film for any DVD collection .

'Frantic' is a great way of appreciating Paris!
'Frantic' is one of my favourite films. Its set in a great setting, Paris and you see all that goes with it!?
Plus great actors like Harrison Ford, who even he if is possibly looking a little older, he is still fantastic with it! There is the French 'Eye Candi' of Emmanuelle Seigner, who is very Sexy throughout the film, lads you will not be disappointed!
Then there is the music of Ennio Morricone that haunts its way through the film, but enhances it tremenously. Plus classic tracks by Grace Jones, such as 'I've Seen That Face Before (Libertango)' that just finishes off the dark, sexy sense that follows throughout the film.
Finally and best of all is the story of intrigue and desparation of a man that loves his wife and he's trying to find her at all costs further to her being kidnapped by a terrorist organisation, even it means giving them an item that could lead them to arming bomb that could destroy thousands of people!
I'd recommend you watch it, its a classic thriller!!

Frantic / Roman Polanski Film
Frantic is yet another great film by Roman Polanski.I,ve seen it many times on VHS and bought it on DVD.Its a Classic film.It Stars many but to my mind Emmanuelle Seigner is just the greatest and sexiest actress ever. I love this film as much as I love Bitter Moon also staring Emmanuelle Seigner Directed again by Roman Polanski.Which I also bought on DVD having own on VHS.
I bought both DVDs through Ebay the greatest market place.
Have a good day Joe.
One of Harrison Ford's best films, is action packed and lets you see a side of Paris you wouldn't normally see. Keeps you on the edge of your seat.Although the film is set aroud the 1980's it has a certain "cool" factor that keeps it good. The Grace Jones music is fantastic. One for the collection
Mystery and Intrigue!
Frantic stars Harrison Ford and it's a most suspenseful and intriguing film and is full of many twists and turns and you are left guessing right up to the end.
I recommend this film to all!
