FRA | 2009 | dir. Michel Hazanavicius, with Jean Dujardin, Louise Monot, Rüdiger Vogler

Jean Dujardin returns as Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath, a.k.a. OSS 117, the pride of French Intelligence. This time, the goofy and nonetheless smooth agent teams up with the sexy Mossad spy Dolorès (Louise Monot) to capture a Nazi blackmailer who had fled to Rio with an embarrassingly long list of World War II French collaborators. This silly and wildly non-politically correct period spy spoof directed by Michel Hazanavicius can claim to equal the Clouseau adventures.
