5.0 out of 5 stars De la Bath. Hubert Bonnisseur de la Bath Feb. 21 2012
I learned about this movie after seeing the Oscar nominated The Artist (DVD + Blu-ray Combo)also starring Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo and directed by Michel Hazanvicius.

Dujardin bears an uncanny resemblance to Sean Connery which makes him a natural choice for this role. You may be surprised at how gifted he is as a comic actor, and how funny this movie is. Based on a series of French books called OSS 117 by Jean Bruce which appear to spoof James Bond, it's somewhat of a combination James Bond and Inspector Clouseau, and has a wonderful French ambiance, mood and soundtrack. The attention to detail is incredible. The first of over 100 OSS 117 books was written 4 years before Ian Fleming's James Bond book.

Curiously, even though Hubert Bonnisseurde la Bath is a secret agent, people seem to know who he is. When a fellow agent and his best friend is killed he gets sent on a mission to Egypt and goes undercover as the owner of a chicken factory. An attractive young lady (Berenice Bejo) is his liaison, and he immediately rubs her the wrong way with his insensitive comments. As he hunts for clues he inadvertently upsets the local Muslims, when he shuts up the Muezzin who woke him up with his yelling.

And there are Nazis too.

Another movie starring with the same lead actor and director is Oss 117 Rio Ne Repond Plus. In my view the Cairo movie is somewhat better, and I do recommend them both.

5.0 out of 5 stars very light and funny Jan. 25 2013
This is a contemporary made movie; however it's made in a "Louis De Funès VS Fantomas" (from 60-x) kind of style: not only visually, but also purposely built around a play of a main character which is brilliant.
Even though the movie is not harsh at all, it's humor will be better understood by adult audience.
Truly a masterpiece.

Man! Jean Du Jardin is awesome! If you like James Bond, you'll enjoy this! It is a great parody of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Du rire de qualité July 8 2012
By amélie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
On rit du ton colonialiste et paternaliste du héros - voire même de son racisme ordinaire - mais de bon cœur parce que c'est une approche tellement désuette de la rencontre avec l'étranger, quand les pays s'ouvraient au monde. Ce n'est jamais méchant et on rit des absurdités que l'ignorance fait dire. Jean Dujardin est parfait dans ce rôle de Sean Connery gauche à la française.
Le 2ème opus, Rio ne répond plus, est lui porté sur la relation homme/femme. J'espère qu'un 3ème verra le jour !
