Plot

Egypt, 1955: Cairo is a total spy ring. Everyone is suspicious of everyone else, everyone is plotting against everyone else: the English, French, Soviets, as well as the family of deposed King Farouk, who wants to reclaim the throne, and the Kheops Eagles, a religious sect that wants to take power. René Coty, the President of the French Republic, sends his master weapon to establish law and order in this bedlam on the edge of chaos: Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath, known as OSS 117.
 

Comments

A very fresh exercise, 23 April 2006 Author: pallach from France Excellent exercise on multiple plans:- showing the not yet ended colonialism spirit in France - more generally the boring mindset of superiority from all western people- a renewal of the spy and thriller movies: OSS 117 is uncultured and stupid!The good idea is that, in spite of all these messages, it is a funny film, plenty of jokes and gags, very light and sparkling.Special mention to Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo.Definitely worth seeing. Wonder how it will be appreciated in US?Seems to be a success in France, so probably a next version will come.
