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".

My favorite Movie when I was a young boy
6 September 1999 | by (Stuttgart, Germany) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the best adventure movies I have ever seen. As a twelve-year old I used to watch it at least once a week on our (to that time) brand new VCR. I think it is the best acting of Belmondo and one of the best actings I have ever seen. An absolutely awesome movie. Pure adventure made in France. Sometimes you can see that Hollywood is not the non-plus-ultra in moviemaking!
