OSS 117: CAIRO, NEST OF SPIES

OSS 117, LE CAIRE NID D’ESPIONS
Directed by Michel Hazanavicius (2006)
in French with English Subtitles
Not rated | Comedy-Adventure | 99 min

Starring Jean Dujardin, Bérénice Bejo, Aure Atika, Philippe Lefebvre, Constantin Alexandrov, Saïd Amadis, Claude Brosset

Based on OSS 117, a series of novels by Jean Bruce, Fleuve Noir, 1949-1963, France.

In 1955, following the death of agent OSS 283, Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath, agent OSS 117, is sent to Cairo to investigate and "secure the Middle East." The deposed King Farouk wants to reclaim his throne while a group of religious fanatics called the "Eagles of Kheops” are on the verge of a holy war. Then, a Soviet ship loaded with weapons mysteriously disappears...

“This inspired piece of silliness boasts gorgeous period design, deftly tweaks French colonial smugness and, in Jean Dujardin's self-mocking playfulness as Agent 117, offers a charging comic turn, closer in spirit to Cary Grant than Mike Myers.” –Vogue
