“Funny and unsettling… Dr Walker (Harrison Ford) checks into a Paris hotel with his wife (Betty Buckley) to attend a conference. She has collected the wrong suitcase at the airport, their problems escalate, and to watch how Polanski calibrates the build-up of disquiet in a standard hotel suite until the wife disappears is deeply satisfying. Walker is suddenly alone with the unimaginable in alien territory, asking for help. Officialdom won’t take him seriously and he resorts to clues lit by match flares. We are in film noir territory. The wrong suitcase leads him to a corpse, and then to Michelle (Emmanuelle Seigner), a swinging chick who attaches herself to his quest.” – Time Out (London)
