Polanski's gift for creating an atmosphere of mystery, dread, escalating suspense, and uncertain fate is aptly displayed in this thriller, shot entirely on location in Paris, France. An American doctor (Ford) arrives in the City of Lights with his wife (Buckley) for a medical convention. They check into a posh hotel, and in a brilliantly directed scene, Ford takes a shower and emerges to find that his wife has vanished. This mysterious disappearance -- and a confusion between two identical pieces of luggage -- leads Ford into an urban underworld where he forges an alliance with a beautiful young woman (Seigner) who holds the only clue to his wife's whereabouts.

Nigel and Fiona (Grant, Scott-Thomas) are a British couple celebrating their seventh anniversary on board a Mediterranean cruise bound for Istanbul. En route, they meet Oscar (Coyote), an expatriate American, and his voluptuously sensual wife Mimi (Seigner), who Fiona discovers passed out on the ladies room floor. After an unpleasant but titillating encounter with Mimi at the bar, Nigel is aroused -- he wants to learn more about her. But he's so gullible and ill-at-ease, he makes himself easy prey for Oscar, who takes advantage of the man's vividly voyeuristic imagination. The jaded American subjects the uptight Brit to torrid tales about his sadomasochistic sex life with Mimi. Eventually, Nigel will discover the truth about Oscar's tumultuous, conflicted marriage.

From Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide: Corny, deliciously trashy tale. Often overwrought, with laughable dialogue and not- to- be- believed sex scenes. A guilty pleasure, to be sure. Polanski also produced and co-scripted. Stockard Channing appears unbilled as a literary agent.
