comment
Those looking for a less controversial example of French satire than Charlie Hebdo should check out That Man from Rio, Philippe de Broca's take on spy films. This relentless Brazilian-flavored thriller from 1964 sees leading man Jean-Paul Belmondo swashbuckle his way in planes, trains and automobiles to recover a statuette pilfered from Paris' Musee de l'Homme. To make matters worse, he also must rescue a kidnapped curator and his drugged fiancee who no longer recognizes him. That Man from Rio screens today as part of the Classic French Film Series, courtesy of Cinema St. Louis and the Webster Film Series.

7:30 p.m. Sun., Mar. 15. Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; 314-968-7487 or www.webster.edu/filmseries). $10 to $12.
Sun., March 15, 7:30 p.m., 2015
