It is of course in 2012 that this film with special effects magisterial. The idea is that according to the Maya calendar in December 2012 was to take place the end of a time cycle of more than 3000 years, cycle whose end marks the renewal. In the West, it was interpreted as the end of the world, and it is quite naturally that a film came out on this theme. Unfortunately if the action scenes are successful, it is not enough to make a good movie. The characters lacking in thickness, the spectators can not project.

There have been several posters, but this one is centered on Christ the Redeemer.

Beware for damage is an Italian film directed by Enza Barboni in 1984. It involves the well known comic duo of the time, Bud Spencer and Terrence Hill. The story tells the adventures of a stuntman and a musician, two look-alike two billionaires, agreeing to take their places during a getaway during which strangers will try to make a big deal fall that billionaires had to sign.

Nowadays we can see this comedy as a little heavy, it does not possess the codes of modern comedy.

Fast and Furious 5

The fifth installment of the famous franchise full of testosterones and oil, we find our main characters in the city of Rio in pursuit of a drug trafficker (what originality). From pursuit in the favellas to the most famous beaches of the city, this film is a succession of racing chases and shootings. The Redeemer Christ is visible once or twice on large planes and on a sequence during which the camera passes over the Corcovado, a plan intended to mark the place of the action.

But in a general way this film does not put forward the statue of Christ, it is just the action of the film that takes place in Rio, so at a moment it is necessary that we see it.



Romeo + Juliette

Twilight 4

The Twilight film series tells the story of Belle, a young girl who has come to live with her father in a small town in the North of the United States, and the two pretenders that she will discover as a member of a clan each other for generations. These are fantastic films. This 4th episode brings Belle and her lover on a beach in Rio, Christ the Redeemer is clearly visible at its summit.

Unfortunately the special effects are not terrible in this regard.



Favellas

Favellas

Favellas

British-Brazilian film of 2014, it was realized by Stephen Daldry in the favellas of Rio, at least they were reconstituted. One follows the pursuit pursued by two children from the slums of the Cariocas and a group of police for the recovery of a portfolio found in a landfill, a wallet containing a pass for a mysterious enterprise where corruption and financial delinquency prevail.

As the film takes place in Rio, there are plans on Christ the Redeemer in it.

L'homme de Rio

Soldier of second class, Adrien Dufourquet is pleased to pass a permission of one week in the company of his fiancée, Agnes Villermosa. But scarcely had he arrived at Paris than from drama to surprise. An Amazonian statue of great price is stolen from the Museum of Man.

Adrien has not yet recovered his breath as Agnes disappears too. Never mind ! Adrien Dufourquet is armed with all the courage. He will fly to the rescue of his fiancée, to the heart of the Amazonian forest ...

All the interest of this film is the exceptional game of Jean-Paul Belmondo, then young first, allied to the know-how of Philippe de Broca. The film takes place almost entirely in Rio, Christ the Redeemer is visible several times.

Moonraker

Moonraker

Moonraker

Moonraker is a spy movie featuring the character of James Bond, then interpreted by the phlegmatic Roger Moore. If the scenario is original but a bit wacky, the action is, as often happens, a rendezvous and highlights an aging hero struggling with a captain of space industry. James Bond will have the opportunity to go on the Sugar Loaf on which will take place a dizzying scene, but while he is quietly there a plan shows the Corcovado and his redeeming Christ.

Second opus of the exploits of Hubert Bonisseur of the Bath version Jean Dujardin, this film with the pupae look resumes the mimics of the first (In Cairo, 20 years before). As its name indicates it takes place essentially in Rio. One of the interests of this film, apart from the comic, is that it ends on Christ the Redeemer, on the arms, where one of the characters will disappear. The scene lasts for about ten minutes and allows to see the monument up close.



Redentor

Redentor

Redentor

Film quite strange as this Redendor. Dating from 2005 and was realized by Claudio Torres. It is a purely Brazilian production. Virtually unknown in Europe, it is a mystical film, a kind of fantastic tale largely awarded in many Brazilian festivals. The film tells the confrontation between two personalities that all opposes, a poor fervent Catholic and a rich man, far from any religious sentiment. The narrative starts from the principle that God was seen by the poor man and this is the starting point of this film to the aesthetic lick.

Being both Brazilian and openly pro-Catholic, this film could not ignore Christ the Redeemer of Rio, which is the emblem of the poster.



La cité de Dieu

La cité de Dieu

The city of God
