showtimes and tickets

A blithe and witty send-up not only of early '60's spy films and the suave secret agent figure but also neo-colonialism, ethnocentrism and the very idea of Western covert action in the Middle East.

A box-office sensation in France, comic star Jean Dujardin stars as secret agent Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath, a.k.a. OSS 117 who somehow succeeds in spite of his ineptitude.

“Stylishly art-directed, slyly subversive and very funny”
--Elisabeth Vincentelli, Time Out NY

“This inspired piece of silliness boasts gorgeous period design, deftly tweaks French colonial smugness, and, in Jean Dujardin's self-mocking playfulness as Agent 117 offers a charming comic turn closer in spirit to Cary Grant than Mike Myers."
--John Powers, Vogue

“An uproarious send-up of Jean Bruce’s long-running series of spy novels - a Gallic precursor to James Bond…makes joyous nonsense out of bad matte paintings, obvious miniatures, unsubtle sexual innuendo and a lead actor who plays the role to clueless, arched-eyebrow perfection”
--Scott Foundas, LA Weekly

OSS 117 Cairo Nest Of Spies is a wonderfully amusing spoof of 60's Spy Films and the early Bond films in particular. Great period detail, production design, cinematograpy make this film a cut above most spy spoof films. Jean Dujardin's great comedic performance as French secret agent OSS 117 is the best element in the film, since it evokes Pink Panther's Inspector Jacques Clouseau, Naked Gun's Lt. Frank Drebin and Get Smart's Agent 86 Maxwell Smart. The Film's satiric overtones regarding Western Countries ignorance over Muslim/Arabie politics, history and culture as demonstrated by the OSS 117 character in the film, is a definite plus in this movie.
