Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Is David Woolf the father of Melodie Woolf, the little girl he has just abducted from her Paris home? The fact that his last name is the same as hers makes his claim seem reasonable, and their passports cause no trouble for him when they cross the border. She is only half convinced, so she tries occasionally to escape, but not very hard. He has cut her hair to prevent any searchers from identifying her, so he could be a "regular" kidnapper. On the other hand, he had her call her mother. Melodie remains suspicious, because she has never heard of him before. Soon after that, his car breaks down and they check into a hotel, which gives them a chance to get to know one another.
