Storyline

Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath, A.K.A. 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

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.

The fine art of humor
16 April 2009 | by valmens3See all my reviews

OSS 117 is a french secret agent, a very very french one. His new mission is to exchange a microfilm for money with an ex Nazi in Brazil. for this mission, he will have to team up with a Jewish sexy secret agent and the hippie son of the ex-Nazi. Whatever...The story is not that interesting, this is a parody of 007, a fine one. here, the hero is stupid and old fashioned, but sure to be the opposite. every single line he says is full of anachronism and ignorance, he has no idea of what he's dealing with and he's kind of childish. But he's the best french agent. Hubert Bonisseur de labathe is our own french Austin Power, for a more mature audience. Here, the laugh comes from the gap between the world OSS thinks he lives in and the real world, and the fact that, even facing the real world, he never changes his mind. The first episode was great, funny and thrilling, a complete absurd spy movie. this one is funnier, because now, we now the main character is a complete idiot, but he always gets what he wants, even if quite don't understand how.
