Storyline

A shaman from the South American rain forest visits France for a public relations campaign. In a hotel's elevator in Paris he meets a French good-for-nothing named Perrin he's fascinated with. He follows Perrin to his flat and although Perrin is not very enthusiastic about so much interest in his person, he lets the shaman spend the night in his flat. After an official meeting on the next day being part of the PR campaign the shaman suffers from a heart attack. Hardly being able to speak and laying in a hospital bed he demands to see Perrin. The latter is not very interested in meeting the shaman again. However it looks like it is to late for animosities as the shaman and Perrin seem to be tied mentally somehow since they've met in the elevator. Written by Oliver Heidelbach

Not Veber at his funniest, but still an enjoyable comedy adventure
24 May 2006 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Le Jaguar is Francis Veber's throwback to 50s-60s on-location comedy adventures, meaning there's not much comedy and not much adventure but the casting and production values carry you along regardless. Patrick Bruel needs to get out of Paris when his gambling debts are sold to East European gangsters, so agrees to go with Jean Reno's environmental activist to the Amazon to find a local chief's soul (long story) only to discover his real self in between being possessed by the spirit of the chief.

In truth there's not much going on here, but it's still an enjoyable movie with some very impressive location work and some of the best aerial photography I've ever seen – Veber has an impressive visual sense of scale, and the film never looks less than gorgeous. Vladimir Cosma's score is also superb and Patricia Velasquez makes an appealing leading lady. The film didn't live up to expectations for a Veber film (possibly because it was released against Mission: Impossible in France) and despite its good intentions can be seen as patronising towards the natives, but it's still an enjoyable diversion.
