The Academy Award®-winning director and star of the The Artist first teamed for this cheeky spoof of vintage 1960s Euro-spy thrillers, which meticulously recreates the archaic genre's cinematography, art direction and outdated attitudes.
Before he won an Academy Award® for The Artist, Michel Hazanavicius lovingly recreated another archaic film style when he revived the OSS 117 franchise — the French answer to Bond, and the opening salvo of the prolific "Euro-spy" sub-genre of the 1960s — for two cheeky parodies of the original series. In this sequel to OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies, the year is 1967 and super-smooth superspy OSS 117 (Hazanavicius' future Artist star Jean Dujardin) has been sent to Rio de Janeiro to find a former high-ranking Nazi in exile. The action-packed investigation takes him across the scenic Brazilian landscape, accompanied by sexy Mossad agent Dolorès Koulechov (Louise Monot), who tries to put up with 117's incurably sexist and colonialist attitudes. Meticulously recreating the genre's cinematography, art direction and costumes, Hazanavicius' goofy and hilarious revamp is a wittier, sharper and sexier rival to Austin Powers.
