“That Man from Rio”

With our first film program of fall, we celebrate the work of Jean-Paul Belmondo, who passed away in September of this year. Join us for the MISCA-sponsored live screening and discussion of “That Man from Rio.”

This 1964 James Bond spoof features Belmondo as a soldier on leave, eager to spend time with his fiancée Agnès (Françoise Dorléac), who instead gets caught up in a madcap adventure in Brazil after Agnes’ father’s colleague is abducted – along with an extremely rare statue that may be a key to an ancient Amazonian treasure.

This zany adventure is said to have inspired the Indiana Jones movies.
Presented in French with English subtitles.
