Dieu Le Veut K This film is a classic that everyone interested in discovering french cinema must see. Rarely are we provided with movies that are capable of making us laugh, tell us a great story, while simultaneously entertaining us throughout the entire run time. Not only are the main characters hilarious, but they are also portrayed by actors that have proven time and time again that they can contribute significantly not only to films made in France but also to the production of widely acclaimed series both in Europe and internationally. I'd recommend this to fans of comedy, as well as anyone who enjoys flicks where the story take place over the course of a week or so. "The Jaguar" presents this genre is a way that will have you entirely immersed in what I think is a brief yet beautiful tale capable of uplifting viewers' spirits with laughter, meanwhile inspiring them to embark on journeys that may lead them to unknown places to unravel their existence and discover life's mysteries. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/24 Full Review Audience Member Helplessly lame, particularly for 1990s, Indiana Jones-styled adventure film with stupid plot, awkward fights, ugly beauty, blurred message and unfunny jokes. The only thing worthy here is the scenery of Latin America present in the opening and closing credits. An Amazonian tribal chief nicknamed Jaguar while on a visit to Paris delegates his power to a good-for-nothing French, who, accompanied by Jean Reno, travels back to the Amazonian rainforests to beat up the bad guys, who want to destroy the forests, and to recover the chief's soul. He predictably does the job and they live happily ever after.
