Stream now and for free 'That Man From Rio' with Jean-Paul Belmondo

Bebel, France's Cinema legend, whose charismatic smile illuminated the screen for half a century, has died aged 88 in his Paris home.

Belmondo, who first came to fame as part of the French New Wave film movement with films like Breathless by Jean-Luc Godard, went on to become a household name acting in 80 films across many genres, including comedies and thrillers.

Born in April 1933 in the wealthy Paris suburb of Neuilly-sur-Seine, Jean-Paul Belmondo started his career in theatre, before embarking on a film career that was to span half a century, with a total of 130 million cinema tickets to his films sold. Known in France as "Bebel", Belmondo was also often called "Le Magnifique" (The Magnificent), after a 1970s secret agent satire in which he starred.

To celebrate the memory of the great Jean-Paul Belmondo, you can now (re)watch here with FrenchFlicks the classic comedy-action movie That Man From Rio (L'homme de Rio), an off the wall spoof of James Bond-type films and one of the main inspirations for Steven Spielberg's Raiders of the Lost Ark.
