That Man from Rio / L’homme de Rio by Philippe de Broca (92′)

Adrien is an army private looking forward to enjoying an eight-day leave: he has come to Paris to visit his girl, Agnès, but arrives just in time to see her being kidnapped by art thieves. What the thugs are after is the last of a trio of ancient South American statues that may hold mystical secrets. Agnès, the daughter of a renowned anthropologist, may just have a lead on the precious tchotchke.
