That Man From Rio/Up to His Ears (DVD)
THAT MAN FROM RIO:
"Takes your breath away. A most beguiling exaltation of the absurd." - The New York Times
INDIANA JONES meets James Bond! A blow dart-wielding thug snatches a rare statuette from the Museum of Man; anthropologist Jean Servais (Rififi) is kidnapped in broad Parisian daylight; serviceman (Jean-Paul Belmondo) begins his 8-day leave by changing to civvies in a Métro entrance and witnesses fiancée (Françoise Dorléac) getting kidnapped herself – and then the chase begins: by motorcycle, shoe leather, flight to Rio de Janeiro sans ticket or passport, airport baggage carrier, cable car, pink car complete with green stars and a rumble seat, water skies, Amazon river boat, seaplane, jungle vine… all shot in breathtaking widescreen and color.
UP TO HIS EARS:
""It's a wild one and a funny one. A motion picture that will be talked about for years."" - The New York Times
Philippe de Broca's follow up to THAT MAN FROM RIO is filled with even more zaniness and hair-raising stunts than its predecessor. Adapted from Jules Verne's 1879 novel ""The Tribulations of a Chinaman in China,"" this madcap adventure is set against beautiful locations in China and Tibet.
