Storyline

Farce, spy spoof, and adventure. Swarthy thieves ignore jewels to steal an Amazon figurine from the Museum of Man in Paris' Trocadero Palace and kidnap the world's authority on the lost Maltec civilization. Cut to Agnes, the daughter of a murdered man who possessed one of two other such figurines. Moments after her sweetheart, Adrien, an Army private with a week's leave, arrives in Paris to see her, Agnes too is kidnapped, drugged, and loaded on a plane to Rio. Adrien is in hot pursuit, and before he can rescue her (with the help of a shoeshine boy), foil the murderous thieves, and solve the riddle of the Maltecs, he must traverse Rio, Brasília, and the Amazon heartland... all before the end of his week's leave.

Trivia

There is a distinctive musical reference/derivation in the music soundtrack in this film that relates to the BBC "Test Match Special" theme (Cricket) which has a long history as a "theme tune." See more »

Goofs

At the hotel in Copacabana, when Dufourquet searches for "Mário De Castro" in the phone book, looking at letter "D": "De Castro, Mario", as written in English. In a list in Portuguese, the name would be listed as "Castro, Mario de", because for names with "De, Da, Dos", the preposition goes at the end when written in lowercase - You wouldn't call him "Mr. De Castro", but "Mr. Castro".

Great, Charming kinetic chase film
21 March 1999 | by withnail-4See all my reviews

Not really a spoof of Bond, but more of a smarter, quicker, hand-held adventure film, with the hand-held camera technique adding to the charm, speed and precarious feel of all the situations. Beautiful and offbeat locations are used ingeniously in Paris, Rio, and Amazon areas. It is definitely the source of "Indiana Jones" material, but this movie is much cooler. The pace is extremely fast, with a plot twist placed right where it is needed.
