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.

Pan d'azucar, bosa nova, Belmondo & Dorleac
6 September 2002 | by mosoulSee all my reviews

This movie is sophisticated colorful European and fun in style. The action grabs you right away and takes you on a fantastic roller coaster ride in some of the most seductive looking cities ever filmed, Rio and Brasilia. Belmondo is supposed to be on a weekend pass and goes AWOL to save his girl who is kidnapped (from Orly Airport in Paris) and dragged to Brazil where she becomes entangled with thieves and stolen Incan statues. It's no wonder that DeBroca's 1967 "King of Hearts" is many people's favorite film of all time. Jean Paul Belmondo and Françoise Dorleac are most engaging and attractive performers. Sadly she died not long after this film was released.
