This review by Jinja

What’s it about?
“It’s 1955 and after a fellow agent and close friend disappears, secret agent Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath, a.k.a. OSS 117, is ordered to take his place at the head of a poultry firm in Cairo. This is to be his cover while he is busy investigating, foiling Nazi holdouts, quelling a fundamentalist rebellion, and bedding local beauties.” – From IMDB

Basically a modern spoof of the James Bond-esque spy movies from the 50’s. Not the Austin Powers ‘in your face’ humour, more subtle and if you know the style being spoofed probably more lasting.

Was it good / bad?
Throughly enjoyed this one. The makers must have watched a lot of movies from the 50’s to get the style right and pick up on some of the ‘usual’ things they mock.

Coolest / Worst scene?
When OSS is chasing the Egyptian through the street of Cairo at night. Goes on to the point of not being funny anymore…then carries on until it becomes funnier than it ever was. Similar to the Austin Powers pee’ing scene in the first movie.

Did you laugh / cry / cover your eyes / walk out?
I did laugh, and I need to watch again as the French language can be so fast the subtitles also rocket along and you sometimes miss whats actually happening on screen.

Anything we should watch out for?
The chicken fight! …and for the blokes, watch out for when Berenice Bejo ends up tied up!

Why should we see / avoid it?
Avoid if you don’t like subtitled movies, otherwise get stuck in. A funny, retro, French spy adventure.

OSS 117: Rio Ne Repond Plus – Trailers

Posted by LiveFor on February 15, 2009

Rio Ne Repond Plus brings back brilliant French comedian Jean Dujardin as the archetypal 1960s spy and ladies man and the promo that screened at AFM made it very clear that this picture is in no way a step back from the previous.

The appeal of the OSS films is a little hard to explain but I’ll take a stab at it. First of all the films are a brilliant, absolutely note perfect recreation of the late 1960s and early 1970s. From film stock to set design to wardrobe and physical mannerisms everything about these pictures is absolutely flawless. You could very easily be watching an actual lost film from that era and on a technical level that is a fairly astounding feat. But more than that it is the character as embodied by Dujardin. Our hero in these films is both a brilliant spy and total buffoon, a man so secure in his belief in the male dominated world view of the 1950s – to say nothing of his own superiority over everything and everyone around him – that he is completely, utterly, blissfully unaware that the world is changing around him and that he is increasingly out of step with reality. Somehow these films avoid slapstick and parody and end up with unusually good natured satire. These are just clever, charming, crowd pleasing bits of work.
