Storyline

Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath, aka OSS 117, is the French spy considered by his superiors to be the best in the business. The year is 1967 - he's been sent on a mission to Rio de Janeiro, to find a former high-ranking Nazi who went into exile in South America after the war. His eventful investigation takes him all across Brazil, from Rio to Brasilia and the Iguazu Falls, accompanied by a charming Mossad agent who is also looking for the Nazi. The man is charming, and so is the young woman. Set to the strains of bossa nova, their tale is by turns an adventure and a love story. Written by The Film Catalogue

Trivia

De la Bath hates his cover name Flanier, and it later becomes an insult used by Carlotta, because it is a play on words of the French 'flaneur', which has no direct English translation, but means a dandy who serves no other purpose than to stroll the streets and look good while doing so.

Quotes

Dolorès Koulechov: Life here isn't easy for everyone, as in most dictatorships.
OSS 117: Dictatorships! Listen to you. You're sweet, but spare me your politics. You know what a dictatorship is? People are communists. They're cold, with gray hats and boots with zippers. That's a dictatorship.
Dolorès Koulechov: What do you call a country with a military leader, secret police, one TV station, and censorship?
OSS 117: I call that France, Miss. Not any France: De Gaulle's France.

19 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

Well actually there are quite a few "Oss 117" movies, but this is the second one with Jean Dujardin as Oss 117! A third one is about to follow (and I hope IMDb is right and it will come out next year/2010). I love the movies. And you actually don't have to have seen the first one ... but it's great, so actually maybe you should (have)! ;o)

Seriously though: Jean Dujardin is back, as an obnoxious agent, but a lovely one at that. An agent, who does not know the word regret and or the meaning of "political correct". So he hasn't changed (really) from part 1, but that's exactly how we like him. With this movie (and the one before that and surely the one after that), you will either love or hate the movie/character.

So are you into a "Bond" movie that actually is rather a spoof and will you love it? I still haven't seen the original movies, but I'm afraid I'm too spoiled by these movies, so I won't really enjoy the earnest Oss 117. Anyway, I can only highly recommend this movie ...
