OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies (2006) (French)

                                         Director: Michel Hazanavicius
                                         Genre   : Action, Adventure, Comedy
                                         Cast     : Jean Dujardin, Bérénice Bejo, Aure Atika and Richard Sammel

      First of all sorry for being irregular in last month.I was busy with something else.And i had to wait till i watch a movie which is worth reviewing.And here i am with OSS 117.
       'OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies' is a French movie released in 2006.Its actually a parady on spy film genre especially of James Bond films starring Sean conory .In this movie Jean Dujardin(2011 Oscar awards best actor-'The artist' fame ) acts as a French spy who thinks himself smart.But in actual he always makes mistakes and sometimes get it right.Unlike Johny EnglishOSS117 is more stylish not a super fool.Both are completely different.You have to watch it to understand yourself.It will take sometime to understand the humor if you are not French,but its good .
           Director showed how funny a cliche scene can be if it is lengthened by 10 more seconds or by adding a small bit of dialogue or awkwardness.Jean Dujardin is at his best as OSS117.Its like this character was born for him.It's a must watch if you have watched James Bond movies.(By Bond movies,i didn't meant the Daniel Craig ones,i was talking about the real James Bond movies- from Sean Conory to Pierce Brosnan).
