It’s 1955, Franco-Egyptian relations are tense, and the situation calls for a top level operative. Enter France’s answer to James Bond: secret agent Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath, codename OSS 117. Sent to Cairo to investigate the death of his close friend and fellow agent, dashing Oscar-winner Jean Dujardin stars as the comic spy who succeeds in spite of himself. From his vantage point in Egypt where he is undercover as the head of a poultry firm, OSS 117 closely watches the Suez Canal, keeps tabs on Cold War superpowers, and pursues peace in the Middle East. This spy spoof send up of neo-colonialism and Western covert action in the Middle East takes full advantage of retro-chic. The fun, award-winning film was a box-office hit in France. Along with the evening’s screening, enjoy popcorn and sparkling French soda almost as bubbly as Agent 117 himself!
