While on leave, Army Private Adrien Duforquet witnesses the kidnapping of his fiancé Agnès, the daughter of a famous archeologist. He sets off to rescue her, which takes him to Brazil – between Rio and Brasilia- following behind a Brazilian statuette stolen from the Musée de L’Homme in Paris.
“Call it a comedy thriller or a tongue-in-cheek travesty on all the archeological mystery-adventure movies and all the "chase" films that have ever been made. Virtually every complication, every crisis involving imminent peril, that has ever been pulled in the movies, especially the old silent ones, is pulled in this. And they are pulled in such rapid continuity and so expansively played, with such elan and aganst such brilliant backgrounds, that they take your breath away.” - Bosley Crowther, The New York Times
