Cairo 1955: Enter French secret agent Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath, codename OSS117. After the death of his colleague on assignment in Egypt, OSS117 is assigned to find the killers. And monitor the Suez Canal. And the British in Cairo. And the Russians too. In fact, save the entire Middle East. Under cover as a poultry fancier, OSS117 - handsome, suave, arrogant and culturally ignorant - gives his all for his country, in Cairo, in bed and in the dark. Starring Jean Dujardin (The Artist).
Cheeky humour - very French
French agent saves the world and gets the girls. What makes it fun is that his arrogant French superiority that is the target of the movie's humour is both guilless and charming. It's a little bit Austin Powers, if he was a shamelessly sexist and irrepressible French nationalist.
French film, english subtitles. The plot does not rely on explosions or action sequences (until the grand finale), the plot relies only on the charm and inherent superiority of the French male.
