L’HOMME DE RIO, FR/IT 1964, 110min, fiction feature, director: Philippe de Broca, original version w/ German subtitles
With Jean-Paul Belmondo, Françoise Dorléac, Jean Servais, et al. While on leave in Paris the young soldier Adrien witnesses the kidnapping of his fiancée Agnès, the daughter of a renowned ethnologist. As a stowaway on a plane he follows her to Rio de Janeiro, and that’s where the chase really gets under way. Adrien rescues his eccentric fiancée, but the bad guys kidnap her a second time, and Adrien rescues her once again. In Brasília some stolen figurines are recovered, and there’s a fast-paced confrontation of good versus evil. All this makes for an adventure film full of light summer entertainment with irresistible sixties flair.

Philippe de Broca (1933-2004) was a French film director who learned his trade as an assistant director for Claude Chabrol and François Truffaut, among other assignments. From 1960 until his death de Broca made more than 30 fiction features, the majority of which possessed a lightness, tempo and high entertainment value served up in a contemporary mainstream package. De Broca’s directing style was rewarded with a favorable reception by his audience and, at times, exacting film critics.
