Frantic (1988) Movie Script

Do you know where you are?
It's changed too much.
So, change the tire.
I'll help you change the tire.
- Are we at the hotel?
- A flat tire.
Now do you know where you are?
In Paris.
- Good morning.
- Good morning.
- Reservations for Walker.
- Walker?
Please sign.
May I have your passports?
Would you be kind enough
to hold the doctor's calls?
Certainly, madam.
- May I?
- Please.
"Please confirm luncheon at the Jules
Verne in the Eiffel Tower today at 1:00."
"Regards, Dr. Maurice Alembert. "
"Numero: 45-84-32-53."
This way, please.
The mini-bar.
Light switch for the bedroom.
The bathroom.
Television controls.
Radio. Message light.
Have a pleasant stay.
Nice fruits.
I would have preferred flowers.
Nice view.
It's magnificent.
It should look very lovely
from the Eiffel Tower...
...where you and Dr. Alembert
can share it together.
I want to take a hot shower.
But first I'll confirm your luncheon.
What for?
You can't speak French or use the phones.
I'm not going. Don't confirm the luncheon.
You told Alembert you were arriving
a day early, didn't you?
You obviously want to see him.
Give me the note.
I didn't tell him when I was coming.
Maurice Alembert...
...happens to be the chairman
of the convention.
Richard, give me the note.
Don't swallow it. You'll choke.
Now she says...
Let me get you some water
to wash it down.
Alembert doesn't give a rat's ass about me.
Not since he saw you
at the Berkeley seminar.
"Be sure to bring your lovely wife to Paris. "
Was he the one with the long legs
who took his shoes off?
Never mind.
How do you feel?
Do you want some breakfast?
I've already eaten, thanks.
Want some "caf au lait" and croissants?
Hello. Room service?
Over here, please.
Let's call the kids.
You can dial direct.
I know.
One, nine.
- Four, one, five.
- Got it.
Walker's residence.
Hey, buddy.
Hi, Dad.
How're you doing?
All right.
It's 11:00 at night.
Why are you up?
You woke me up.
I know. Just testing.
Sure, Dad.
Before that, somebody else called
from Paris for Mom.
Somebody called for you from Paris.
I don't know anybody in Paris.
Hold on. Mom wants to say hello.
Can you make these keys work?
I can't get my suitcase open.
- Hi.
- Hi.
- How are you?
- I'm all right.
Were you sleeping?
Who called me?
- I don't know. Casey talked to him.
- Him?
Put Casey on.
She's not here.
She left you alone?
Casey's out?
She's on a date.
When did she go out?
I don't know. She left around...
You're not scared, are you?
You can call us anytime, okay?
We'll call you tomorrow.
No wonder you can't get the keys to work.
It's not your suitcase.
Not my suitcase?
It doesn't have your nametag.
There's no name at all.
The keys don't work.
It's not your suitcase, dummy.
You did this on purpose 'cause
you want me to go shopping in Paris.
I'll get on TWA and straighten it out.
Please get me TWA.
The lost luggage department.
Besides, for the next 24 hours... won't need anything to wear.
Promises, promises.
Yes, I was on Flight 862 this morning
from San Francisco.
My wife apparently picked up
the wrong bag.
Yes. You have it?
It's always Samsonite. They look alike.
What's the tag number?
"I love Paris"
"Why, oh, why do I love Paris?"
The Grand Hotel Intercontinental.
How about it?
They'll send someone to pick this one up...
...and we'll fill out a form for yours.
We'll hope whoever's got your stuff
doesn't like it better than their own.
I was talking about breakfast in bed.
Be with you in a minute.
Honey, I can't hear you.
You're awful quiet in there, babe.
Have you gone to sleep on me?
I ain't in here shaving for drill.
You going to get that?
This is your... "les affaires de toilette".
What time is it, please?
10:10, sir.
I'm looking for my wife.
No messages, sir. Your passports.
Where's the good-looking guy...
...who was here when I checked in
this morning?
He stops work at 8:00.
Perhaps I can help you.
I'd like to speak to the manager.
Would you get him for me?
Certainly, sir. If you please.
You wish to see me?
Yes. Thank you.
I checked in this morning with my wife.
While I was in the shower, she left.
She hasn't come back.
How may I help you?
- Does she know Paris?
- Pardon me?
Maybe she's lost.
No, she wouldn't have gone out.
She left her bag. She would have told me.
Tlphone pour monsieur.
For me?
Dr. Janet Perelman.
Did you have a pleasant trip?
Dr. Alembert asked me to call.
We have a scheduling problem.
Aortic valves are a temperamental group... could you read your paper
tomorrow at 3:00?
No problem.
We'll have to put your slides
in the morning.
About lunch at the Eiffel Tower...
Shall we pick you up
or can you come on your own?
I'm afraid we're going to have to cancel.
It sounds like a tourist trap,
but the food is marvelous...
That's not it. It's unavoidable, I'm afraid.
Dr. Alembert was hoping to see you
and your wife before the madness starts.
I'll have him call you.
No, it's something else.
This is Pascal, head of security.
Does your wife know anybody in the hotel?
Not that I know of.
Have you checked with the concierge?
- He's off duty. It was...
- Gaillard.
Let's give him a ring.
Is your wife diabetic or...
I'm a doctor. It's not a medical problem.
He says his father is sleeping.
He's not supposed to wake him.
We'll call later.
Have you checked around the hotel?
I looked in the newspaper place,
the bar, outside, everywhere.
The ladies' room?
Clearly, she's not here.
- Bonjour.
- Monsieur.
Do you speak English?
Just a second.
I'm looking for this lady.
I'm looking for my wife.
My wife. She might have...
Espresso, please.
Excuse me, you speak English?
My wife.
What do you want?
I'm looking for my wife. This one.
She might have come in this morning.
She had no coat.
She was wearing a red dress.
A lot of people come here. Sorry.
Over there, this morning, in the "passage".
A man put a woman in the car.
This woman?
Coming with me. I explain to you.
I'm sorry. How much?
Around here.
Yes, it is true. "Incredible. "
Incredible story.
What exactly did you see?
Exactly. Two friends of mine
saw the event.
They saw everything.
What did they see?
One man push with brutality
the poor woman in the car.
She's your wife?
Where are these friends of yours?
- When? When?
- Go back later.
You have a cigarette?
I don't smoke, but...
Blue. Gray, really.
- What about it?
- The shape.
It's thin and narrow at the jaw
with a rounded forehead.
Ah, Paris.
City of Lights.
I expect you people to take me seriously.
You are being taken perfectly seriously, sir.
You have a special treatment.
Usually we fill out this form after a week.
Usually we just take a deposition.
This is the procedure.
Even if they find Mrs. Walker...
...they can't disclose where she is
without her consent.
You'd need a French attorney
to make a formal request.
What are you talking about?
Why wouldn't she want me to know?
You've been to Paris before?
Yes. On our honeymoon.
Is it possible she met someone then,
whom she's been thinking about?
Since June 15, 1968?
Please, don't take offense. I'm an ex-cop.
We've seen this type of thing before.
Can we call the concierge again?
- Gaillard's gone out.
- Where?
- Is Gin and Tonic a bar?
- Gym Tonic. A gymnasium.
Did you get an address?
They don't take client calls.
Tell them it's an emergency.
He hung up.
Dr. Walker.
Something I can do for you, sir?
My wife. Do you remember my wife?
She left the hotel this morning
while you were on duty.
- Did you see her?
- Yes, I spoke to her.
What did she say?
She asked me to send up toilet articles...
...and left with the man who called her.
I don't understand. Man who...
Well, a man...
...asked me if Mrs. Walker was at the hotel.
I said she was.
He called your room.
A little later, your wife came down.
She asked me to get her some toothpaste,
a toothbrush and... do you call to take off make-up?
Take make-up off your face.
Cotton balls.
And they left together.
Is there a problem?
Did she seem to know him?
Were they talking?
Did you notice anything else?
I noticed she had wet hair,
which is a bit strange.
I didn't hear what they were saying, but...
...he had his arm around her.
Around her waist or...
No, around her shoulder.
What did this man look like?
Tall, well-dressed, mustache, dark skin.
He had an accent.
An accent?
Not American, if you know what I mean.
More like Middle East.
Thank you.
I'm sorry. Thank you.
You'll have to wait your turn.
This is an emergency, you understand?
You understand, but don't give a damn.
We have a lot of emergencies.
You have to wait like everyone else.
Has everyone else had
their wife kidnapped?
I don't know, sir.
Where are you from?
San Francisco, like the passport says.
Step through the metal detector, please.
I'll take that, sir.
Remove all the metal objects
from your pockets.
I keep your passport here.
Wear this pass in the building, sir.
Thank you. Go in.
Blue, both of them.
Oval. Look...
I know this seems like
annoying bureaucracy, but...
...we have to send
a missing person's report to the police.
I've been to the police.
I've filled out the form.
And it's not a missing person.
It's a kidnapping.
Don't you think it's premature
to be so positive?
No, I don't. I have witnesses.
My wife was kidnapped.
Do you understand?
Yes, of course.
What would you like us to do, exactly?
I want you to find my wife.
Dr. Walker, ours is basically
a liaison function.
We can help you communicate
with the French police.
We can put a little pressure
on the Ministry of Interior.
But, it's their jurisdiction.
We can't just send a posse out after her.
What do you do here?
I'm head of American Services.
Visa applications...
...registering births...
Is there somebody here who can help me?
Talk to our security officer.
- Are you rich?
- No, I'm well off. I'm a surgeon.
- Involved in politics?
- No.
Your wife?
The same. We don't even vote anymore.
There isn't much to support
your kidnapping theory, except this.
She could have dropped it.
It's flimsy, doesn't close very well.
It used to.
You were in the shower
when this person called?
So you didn't hear
any of their conversation?
No, none of it.
They spoke for a moment,
then she went downstairs to meet him.
Meet him?
Yes. Meet him.
And when they left the hotel,
he had his arm around her.
He had his arm around her.
Here, like this.
He could have had a gun. Like this.
Pointed at her.
"Shut up. Smile. Walk. Out the lobby. "
Yes, it could mean that.
Or they could've been having a good time.
Mr. Shaap, you're talking about my wife.
You must be thinking about yours.
402, please.
- What's this?
- TWA came by to fetch a suitcase.
Jesus, the suitcase.
No other messages?
Nothing. He asked for you to leave it
in the luggage room.
My key, please.
It's not here, Mr. Walker.
Jet lag.
Should I send the bellboy?
I've come for the suitcase, sir.
Just a minute.
And this.
Please call Dr. Richard Walker
at the Grand Hotel...
It's important.
- A beer.
- Tuborg, Heineken?
Do you know someone named Dd?
You're looking for Dd?
Yeah, you know him?
Sure. You don't look like you know him.
What am I supposed to look like?
Desperate, man.
I'm desperate.
Where you from, man? New York?
San Francisco.
Much better, man.
North Beach. Much, much better, man.
Many places to dance.
"If you go to San Francisco"
"Be sure to wear a flower in your hair"
Come on, man. Buy me a Kahlua
and tell Jack your desperate troubles.
All I really need, man, is Dd.
All the boys and girls are looking for Dd.
But Dd's been gone two nights.
Man, why not say what you're looking for?
Dd is not the only one
who can show you.
Why don't you tell me
what I'm looking for?
The white lady.
Isn't that so?
Heavy. Now I see the desperate man.
- Is she all right?
- Beautiful, man.
Nobody has touched the lady.
You don't worry, man.
Follow me.
- Where is she?
- Cool, man.
No one has so much as stepped on her toe.
She's here, man.
And pure as the driven snow.
Give it a try.
Do a one-on-one and tell me if I lie.
Come now, man. The nose knows.
The white lady.
Pure white.
Good, not true?
600 francs.
You don't need Dd, man.
All right, man.
One more of these for Dd's address.
You have a "stylo", man? A pen?
Your matches.
Please call Dr. Richard Walker,
Grand Hotel...
No messages, huh?
Nothing here. I'll check with the operator.
You should go to the gym
and do some sports, Doctor.
You got two calls,
but the man wouldn't leave a message.
Son of a bitch.
Would you come to my room?
- The suitcase.
- I'll call the police.
Not now.
Get my suitcase from the luggage room.
It's gone. They took it.
TWA. After I came on duty.
Shut the door.
Tell me what this says.
It's me. It's Michelle.
I'm back. I made a good trip.
I'll see you tonight at the Blue Parrot.
Don't forget my money.
She's waiting for Dd.
Something about leaving her suitcase
in a locker.
She has nothing to dress in and no keys.
It's her again.
She's angry now.
She'll wait at the Parrot until it closes,
then she'll go to his place.
When do nightclubs close?
4:00 or 6:00, it depends.
Listen! Listen!
Where is she?
- Don't kill me!
- Where is she?
- What do you want?
- My wife. Where is she?
Why did you kill Dd?
I didn't. I didn't kill anyone.
What do you want from me?
Look familiar?
- Where did you get that?
- Your suitcase.
You have it! Pay me what you owe me.
I did my job.
- Job?
- You know what I mean.
No, I don't.
All I know is I have your suitcase...
...and you have my wife's.
Do you understand?
You picked up the wrong suitcase
at the airport!
You understand?
I must have that suitcase.
What did you bring back?
Please, we must leave here.
Quick, please.
You were on Flight 862
from San Francisco?
Yes, this morning.
- I want your ticket.
- What for?
Your suitcase for your ticket.
It's at my apartment.
- Let's go. Where do we get a cab?
- I have a car.
Here, hold this.
I'm not going to jump.
I don't have my key.
My roommate is in Bangkok.
And you know where my key is, right?
You see? I didn't fly away.
I have to call my hotel. Telephone?
Over there.
- Where?
- There.
It's dead. Sonia didn't pay the bill.
My roommate. Bitch!
Where's the ticket?
I threw it away.
Maybe it's... Wait.
Here's my ticket. Give me my suitcase.
Will you put it back in the locker?
You're with the people who followed me.
- I'm not with anyone.
- How do you know about the locker?
I listened to Dd's messages.
- You don't speak French.
- I had it translated.
Why is it so important?
You have my wife's suitcase.
You put it in the locker this morning.
I can't get it back.
- What are you saying?
- I can't get the suitcase back.
I don't care about that!
I'm looking for her!
My wife, goddamn it!
You put her suitcase in the locker
and it didn't have what they wanted...
...but it had our telephone number.
They came to the hotel and took her.
Your wife?
They kidnapped her!
They want my suitcase. Why take her?
When I find them, I'll ask. Who hired you?
- Dd.
- Who hired Dd?
I don't know.
I don't...
If they knew me, they would kill me.
I gave them the wrong suitcase
and they killed Dd.
- I don't think so.
- You think I lie?
You gave them the wrong suitcase today.
Dd's been dead more than a day.
- Who says?
- I say.
Are you a doctor?
No corpse stinks that much
after just 12 hours.
Take my word for it. Yes, I am a doctor.
What did you bring back? Dope?
- Isn't that what you do, smuggle dope?
- Not this time.
Then what was it?
Okay, it was dope.
What kind? Heroin? Cocaine? Opium?
What do you care?
It matters!
I don't know what kind and I don't care.
I'm very frightened.
You want your wife back,
you'll get my suitcase.
Is this how you got in?
- Can I help you?
- Is this your wife?
She seems very happy.
Yes, she is.
She's a happy person. That's her nature.
- What?
- They're following me.
I saw a man on the plane
and the train from the airport.
I lost him at the station
before I got to the locker.
Are they police?
- I don't think so.
- Then who?
Maybe the people that hired me.
Hired Dd.
Stop. I want to talk to them. Stop!
Can we go now?
I'm being followed.
Get your fingers out of your face
and drive us to the airport.
We have a lost bag.
What sort of bag?
A white Samsonite.
Let me help you.
What has it got, a false bottom?
The suitcase.
Jesus Christ, those dogs are drug-trained.
It's not drugs.
Then what's in it?
What do you care? I don't know.
All I know is it's not drugs.
You want your wife back?
Then relax, be cool and just walk.
We'll give them what they want.
You'll get your wife, I'll get my money
and everyone will be happy...
...except Dd.
Is there a doctor in the house?
Is there a doctor in the house?
We missed you.
Where were you, up in first class?
We got here yesterday.
Yesterday? And you haven't found
your way out of the airport yet?
I thought I was wrecked!
No, a mix-up with the bags.
Mix-up with the bags?
I am wrecked. I hope I don't miss
your speech. It's tomorrow, right?
No, it's today.
I hope you don't miss it.
- Got a match?
- Somewhere.
Irwin, look who's here.
Irwin, look. You remember Dick?
I wondered when we'd see you.
How's Sondra?
She's fine.
So, you two have been here
for a day or so?
When we get to the hotel,
I'll wake her up...
...and see if she wants
to have breakfast with me.
I'll see if she has any new faces in her life.
Will you help me with this, Dickie...
...until we get through customs?
Got it?
You bet.
Looking for your little friend?
She went through there already.
Here! Take it! Give it to the man.
What kind of music do you like?
Old music. Oldies, mostly.
Me, too. You like this?
- This is not old.
- Three, four years.
Could you hold the wheel, please?
Goddamn it!
- Why did you do that?
- Take the wheel!
It's good coke!
That was 500 francs, at least!
Just watch the road
and get us where we're going.
Jesus Christ!
You can go home.
I got the suitcase. I don't need your help.
Unless you tell me what's in it.
Do you think I'm stupid? If I tell you,
then you really don't need me.
You do know what's in it.
I don't. But it's my suitcase
and I will tell him that.
You have me confused...
...and I'm very hungry.
There is a message for you.
What does Dr. Alembert say?
Would you translate?
He wants the lecture slides.
He wishes you to drop them off
before lunch.
Would you order me breakfast?
One or two?
Tea or coffee?
I thought my place was messy!
There's always someone
who'll do you one better.
How much were they paying you?
How much?
Dd gave me first 10,000 francs...
...and 15 more
because I bought my own ticket.
When I will be back
he will give me at least 10,000 francs.
How much did they owe you?
Well... No.
10,000 francs, more or less.
What are you doing?
You did it for the money, here's the money.
Then you can leave me alone.
$2,000, that's about 11,000 francs.
It's a bit more.
Room service.
I'm sorry for all this.
The police have to ask you some questions
before we can clean up.
Just a moment.
I take only half.
Instead of the other half,
keep me with you.
I stay with you until you give them
my suitcase.
I don't want to end up like Dd.
You better go.
No, I won't go. Please.
I'll come to your place
once I straighten this out.
Yes, I promise. Now scoot.
Wait. I need a little money.
I just gave you $1,000.
That was my salary. I need for expenses.
Just a minute.
I'd like to ask you some questions, too.
- Leave her alone.
- I beg your pardon?
She doesn't know anything about this.
I'm a married man.
Can I have a little consideration?
Has Paris changed so much?
Has anything been taken?
Jewelry, clothing, anything?
You must have a list to lodge a complaint.
I don't wish to lodge a complaint.
Why not?
There's nothing to complain about.
The truth is...
...I tore this place up myself.
My wife and I were having a fight and...
...I was looking for her phone book.
You're right.
She does have a friend in Paris.
I've got an important paper to read
at this medical convention.
I don't want this to get out of hand.
I'm sorry for the trouble.
I know it's been a lot of trouble.
All right, Doctor, we understand.
By the way... asked the concierge
to translate a tape with messages on it.
He mentioned a name: Dd.
I was told that tape had medical
information relating to the convention.
Do you have that tape?
It may interest you to know my colleagues
came across a man called Dd Martin...
...who was in need of medical attention.
If you find that tape, please inform us.
I hope you know what you're doing.
Have a nice day.
Walker's residence.
- What's new, sweetheart?
- Hi, Dad!
Nothing much. Just having a party.
Nothing wild, Dad, you know.
Yeah, I know.
Have a nice time.
Are you all right?
I'm fine, honey.
- Are you and Mom having a fight?
- Of course not.
How's Richie?
You sure you're okay, Daddy?
What's that music you're listening to?
Grace Jones.
Why, do you like it?
Been hearing it a lot.
You're kidding. Sounds like you
and Mom are having a good time.
Go back to your party.
- I love you.
- I love you, too, Daddy.
Tell Mom I love her and give her a big kiss.
- 'Bye, honey.
- 'Bye, Dad.
- Sit down.
- No.
Sit down, I said.
You're young and should learn that
before you stick your nose in something... should know who's who,
and who does what.
Once again, where is it?
- I don't know!
- Like hell, you don't! Slut!
They don't teach you to talk to young girls.
He's a bit crazy. He's spent
too much time in America.
Cut the good-cop-bad-cop shit.
There's no time.
Come on, we're French.
We understand each other, don't we?
Trust us.
We don't go around cutting throats.
We're not bandits.
We're not that kind of people.
We can protect you.
Show us some good will
and we'll show you good will, okay?
At the San Francisco airport...
...a blond guy kissed you on both cheeks.
What did he say?
Bon voyage.
- He gave you something.
- She already told you.
He gave her the Statue of Liberty.
She put it in her suitcase.
He gave you the statue.
You put it in the suitcase. And then?
- I got on the plane.
- In Paris, what did you do?
I put it in the locker.
And the key to the locker?
I left it in the phone booth
with chewing gum under the shelf.
- Check the bathroom.
- I did.
Who gave you the instructions?
- Dd Martin.
- Who else?
Nobody else, just Dd.
He is a friend of mine.
He was.
So, then you left the statue
in the locker, right?
The suitcase.
The suitcase?
I was supposed to leave the statue...
...but I saw him at the station
and I panicked.
I recognized him from the plane.
Bullshit! She didn't know
where I was sitting.
The stewardess spilled coffee on you.
He has a bad temper.
Yes, he has.
So, you saw him at the station?
By the lockers.
And you panicked?
I threw the suitcase in the locker.
With the statue?
No, just the suitcase.
You took the statue out?
No, it wasn't there.
Where was the statue, dear?
In another suitcase.
What is this crap?
Do you think we are idiots?
I don't think you're an idiot! Please.
Where is it, you bitch?
- Where is this other suitcase?
- I don't know.
You checked the bedroom, too, I suppose.
I woke up and you were gone.
Come back to bed.
Who is he?
He's... you know.
- You're making so much noise.
- Who are you?
- These guys friends of yours?
- Not really.
What are we talking about?
Take it easy. There's been some mistake.
He's American. He may be crazy.
Right, there's some mistake.
Cool it. We're only asking her
a few questions.
You're not asking her jack shit.
Get out of here.
- I'll go on my own time.
- You'll go now!
Don't mess with me!
I am an American and I am crazy!
We'll stay in touch.
Where am I?
Where am I?
How did I get here?
My friends brought you.
- She called.
- Who?
- Your wife.
- Where?
The hotel. She called twice.
She'll call again at 1:00.
We missed them.
Where is it?
Where is it?
Where's my wife?
Hi, honey.
They haven't hurt you, have they?
All right, you've talked to her.
Please don't frighten her. Don't...
...make her scared.
Don't worry, she's just a bit tired.
I've got the thing you want.
What do you want me to do?
Yellow level at the Beaubourg Parking.
Wait. Say it again.
Beaubourg Parking, yellow level. Got it?
Bring the statue, Doctor.
And, Doctor...
...don't be stupid.
Or else beautiful Mrs. Walker goes bye-bye.
What is it?
I don't know.
Have you got some tape?
Take this and go behind that truck.
Don't come out until I say.
I'm scared. Are you?
I'm scared shitless. Go on.
It's good luck to say "merde".
You're not supposed to answer.
Lady Liberty?
Let my wife out first!
No! Stop.
I'll get the girl. She has it.
Come on!
Come on!
Tell them to give me my bread.
What are you doing? Don't do this!
Give it to them!
No! Never!
Watch out!
Take it! Take it!
Blue BMW...
...four doors, license plate number:
You got it?
They had a knife at her throat.
Did you hear me?
Yeah, a knife at her throat. Go on.
Go on where?
My wife is being held for ransom!
I know. I've got that, too.
They were after this electronic gizmo...
A Krytron.
Whatever, whatever.
What about the other gang
that came in the Peugeot?
The other gang was on foot.
The guy in the Peugeot was with them,
the kidnappers.
He's dead in his car on the "rue de Rivoli".
I'm not sure what you mean by "them".
Hold on a minute. I have to take this call.
- Hello? Doctor?
- Yes.
What number are you calling from?
How do I know what number?
I'm in a caf. The Paris Midi.
How do you spell that?
With an "S", for "shithead"!
Those guys are supposed to be loaded.
Look at this, 200 francs.
Can you believe it?
- What's this?
- His wallet.
Whose wallet?
- The dead guy.
- You took his wallet?
I wasn't supposed to?
He doesn't need it anymore.
Let me see.
Born in Cyprus.
Look at this.
What is this?
A nightclub.
- You know it?
- Sure. It's for old jerks and really square.
It's full of rich Arabs. Greeks, too.
- You've been there?
- Once Dd took me.
Dr. Walker, it looks like you were right.
About what?
- Is that the...?
- Yes.
You can talk in front of her.
She knows more about this than you.
Okay, who's got my wife?
- We believe they're Arabs.
- That's news.
We're playing catch-up.
All we know is they're Arab agents.
- Have you heard of Krytron before?
- No.
Neither had I.
It's an electronic triggering device.
A miniature, high-performance switch...
...capable of withstanding severe shock
and vibration.
What's it for?
It's used in missile separation
and for triggering nuclear devices.
- It sets off atomic bombs?
- That's what they're after.
- It was stolen from the manufacturer.
- We're lucky a US citizen found it.
I should have asked
for 20,000 francs at least.
Who were the guys in her apartment?
Probably on our side.
"Our" side? Your side.
We're doing everything to help your wife.
We're pressuring the Minister of Interior.
We brought in Interpol.
I sent a telex to the State Department.
I think priority one is to get this
to a safe location.
Where might that be?
The Embassy.
This is Sondra's life.
The device doesn't belong to you, Doctor.
Nor to you.
It belongs to me. I brought it over.
It's okay?
Just don't... touch my face.
What about this?
We can't take this with us.
You look nice.
Will you take this card?
Of course, American Express.
Go and see.
- No problem, I assure you.
- I insist.
I can't stand this music.
I'll be damned!
Dr. Metlaoui, Cairo Cardiology Convention,
Nice to see you.
This is Dr. Richard Walker.
We were all waiting for your lecture today.
Let me introduce you.
Dr. Alloullou, Dr. Bouzid, Professor Cherif.
Best surgeon in Tunisia.
What happened?
Did you have some trouble
or too much champagne, like us?
We dance?
I see. "Cherchez la femme".
We take American Express.
I've got something else, too.
- Where is he?
- Dead.
Those Israeli dogs.
It's regretted you were followed.
It's more likely you were followed.
We still have your wife.
And I still have what you want.
Then I propose another exchange.
And this time, I decide how it will be done.
- You'll hear from me.
- Very well.
Everybody is in your hands.
That's right.
Are you ready?
5:00 a. m.
On the bridge by the Statue of Liberty.
I understand.
You broke your word.
You were to keep me with you.
I'm sorry.
It's dangerous.
I don't need your money.
It's cold.
Hold it there!
Let's see it.
Give it to the girl.
She comes alone.
My wife first!
Give me my money
or I'll throw it in the river.
Money? What money?
I still wasn't paid.
I don't have any money.
- How much?
- 10,000 francs.
Nobody fucking move!
The girl brings it up here!
Just go!
It hurts.
"I'm cold. " I'm cold, Walker.
You'll be fine, baby.
You'll be all right.
Don't leave me alone.
This is what you want?
I love you, baby.
I love you.
