The Parisian broker Steph only needs the signature from his wife Patricia for their divorce - but she left 13 years ago for living with Amazonas indians. Steph finds her in the village and gets stuck for two days, where he learns that he has got a son, who grew up as an indian. Meanwhile he fails to confirm a soy bean transaction and promises his son Mimi-Siku to show him Paris as soon as he will become a man. However, this happens next day when the tribe celebrates the children's festival. So both fly back to Paris, where Steph and his partner Richard try to limit their losses by selling the beans to the Russian mafia, and Mimi-Siku discovers the city with bare feet.

This movie was slightly entertaining. Ludwig Briand as "Mimi-Siku" did a fantastic job......but the movie, itself was fair. The sub-plot was rather weak. The visual aspects of the movie were stunning......especially the scenes in the jungle. It's American counter-part, "Jungle 2 Jungle", was about the same.
