OSS 117 – Lost in Rio

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

Part of “Rendez-Vous with French Cinema 2010.” Director Michel Hazanavicus and star Jean Dujardin in person.

A delightful, madcap comedy that follows suave Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath (Jean Dujardin)—better known as OSS 117—as he travels across Brazil with a charming Mossad agent on the trail of a hidden high-ranking Nazi. Reviving France’s top spy, director Michel Hazanavicius lovingly conjures up an earlier era with Sixties-flavored set design and candy-colored cinematography. And the cartoonishly handsome Dujardin brings just the right touch of irony.
