Man from Rio

Cohen Media Group is bringing a new restoration of "That Man From Rio," a dazzlingly wild 1964 adventure comedy starring sexy French screen icon Jean-Paul Belmondo and directed by Philippe de Broca, to NY's Film Forum on August 22. Watch an exclusive trailer for the new print, which bowed at Cannes 2014, below.

A blow dart-wielding thug snatches a rare statuette from the Musée de l’Homme; anthropologist Jean Servais 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 (Catherine Deneuve’s sister, killed in a car accident 3 years later) 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.

A sort of French precursor to "Raiders of the Lost Ark," "Man From Rio" draws inspiration from the Tintin comics, which another French director, Alain Resnais, always hoped to adapt.

The DCP restoration was supervised by Pierre Lhomme, DP of Melville's "Army of Shadows" and de Broca's "King of Hearts."
