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

Good fun
9 September 1999 | by (Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Canada) – See all my reviews

I didn't notice that this movie was directed by Francis Veber when I rent it. Veber was a director and screenwriter of a lot of very good comedies from the 1980's and 1970's, most of them featuring comic Pierre Richard. Veber also directed the hilarious Le dîner de cons, in 1998. So, Le Jaguar had all the elements of Veber movies. It's not genious, but it had imagination in situations where a man (Bruel) had trouble because he's at a place or in a situation where he's not suppose to be, and he's got help from a man (Reno) who is at the right place. For good smiles, see this movie, or any of the Veber films. Reno is very good, as always.
