The pride of French intelligence, Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath â€“ code named OSS 117 â€“ has a new mission that takes him to the Bossa Nova Brazil of the 1960â€™s. Teaming up with a sexy Mossad agent he has to capture a Nazi blackmailer with an embarrassingly long list of World War II French collaborators.
With a jubilantly retro score and production design along with flair for 1960s era cinematic vocabulary, the filmmakers again have the perfect man to send up Western arrogance, French chauvinism and bigotry in general with biting satire and scathing wit.
