UP TO HIS EARS
Monday, August 25
(1965, Philippe de Broca) “I’m forced to tell you the truth: I am a millionaire.” Still, Jean-Paul Belmondo’s not happy; as his latest suicide attempt fizzles, mentor Valery Inkijinoff (Pudovkin’s Storm over Asia!) advises – let me do it. But when Belmondo rethinks after meeting stripper Ursula Andress (Dr. No, Cremaster 5) – where’s Inkijinoff? In De Broca and Belmondo’s follow-up to That Man From Rio, the even more hair-raising stunts unreel across Chinese and Tibetan locations. Adapted from Jules Verne’s non-sci-fi 1879 novel The Tribulations of a Chinaman in China. Approx. 104 min. DCP.
