Editorial Reviews

Review

Possibly the 2nd funniest spy spoof ever. --Wade Major, Box office.com

If you are a fan of inspired silliness, you won't want to miss OSS 117: Lost in Rio. --John Powers, Vogue

Dujardin does wonders. The actor invents a persona that like sellers' inspector Clouseau, is a continual joy to watch! --Jordan Mintzer, Variety

Product Description

The price of French Intelligence, Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath - code name OSS 117 - has a new mission that takes him to the Bossa Nova Brazil of the 1960s. Teaming up with a sexy Mossad agent, he sets out 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 the cinematic vocabulary of the 1960s, the filmmakers again have the perfect man to send up Western arrogance, French chauvinism and bigotry in general with biting satire and scathing wit.

Customer Reviews

The actors and scenery are beautiful.
Daniel G. Lebryk
The film parodies the style but hews closely enough that it could easily be just an extreme example of an actual Sixties film.
Michael Harbour
My french gets a little better every time I watch it.
D. J. Pascua

More Gallic silliness with Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath, the pride of French intelligence, this time in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil of the 60s. This spoof of early James Bond films works so well because everyone connected with this farce is on the same page starting with the star, Jean Dujardin, a Sean Connery look-a-like. Adapted from the series of OSS 117 books by Jean Bruce, with a screenplay and direction by Michel Hazanavicius, the politically incorrect tone is sustained in almost every scene.

Dujardin's blithe, glib, ignorant arrogance propels him from one massive faux pas into another as he somehow manages to stay alive and maybe even fulfill his mission, this time tracking a microfilm that compromises the State and necessitates stopping a Cold War Nazi blackmailer.
The look of the film perfectly captures the style and tone of 60's movies, with great vintage film colors and tints, upgraded a touch from OSS's last outing which was set twelve years earlier in Cairo of the 50s.

For fans of 60's spy films, here's more absurd fun and offensive humor that ranges from Rio's sunny beaches, through luxuriant Amazonian forests, down into the depths of secret grottos and up to the top of the outstretched arms of the gigantic Christ the Redeemer statue. It's a twisted visual metaphor that works as a fitting finale.

Wherever danger lurks, whatever the inappropriate remark, you can count on Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath to be there -- and blithely make things worse.

I saw the Trailer for Lost in Rio at the Music Box in Chicago and had to see this movie. Jean Dujardin is the Suave, Hip Counter-Intelligence Spy the World needs! OSS 117 asking the German Embassy if they have a list of ex-Nazis hiding in Brazil is so funny because He is so sincere with his request. The movie is in French with subtitles but still an enjoyable Action Comedy. France's Greatest Spy? That is for others to decide.

He's baaaack. That glib smile, that infectious laugh, that receding hairline, those mischievous eyebrows and, let's not forget, that prêt-à-porter wardrobe. In OSS 117: Lost in Rio, French comedic actor Jean Dujardin returns for another, hilarious outing as the secret agent code-named OSS 117. This time around, it's a doozy, as in "douze ans plus tard." OSS 117 is twelve years older and more inept than ever.

As with 2006's uproarious OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies, this sequel also was adapted from the OSS 117 novels by Jean Bruce. Dujardin's Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath reads like an early "007" on acid. That he resembles Sean Connery's James Bond (circa Dr. No) while poking fun at Gallic arrogance lends parodic thrills and caustic political satire to his new, South American adventure.

Take note: The bumbling spy who can never seem capable of parallel-parking his flashy convertible, is *not* OSS double-one seven. "Non pas de tout." He's OSS "cent dix-sept"! Mais oui. Amid all the hijinx, Bonisseur de la Bath, who's flitting through Brazil's pristine beaches, scenic roads and tropical rainforests as evening newspaper reporter "Noel Flantier," tries his dogged best to get laid - thus, my title for this review. He possesses neither the dashing charm of Connery's Bond nor the rugged allure of James Coburn's Derek Flint (himself a parody of the debonnaire Bond) in Our Man Flint. Every time "petit Hubert" tries to take a "dip," it's a side-splitting laugh for us, the viewers. And oh, it hurts so good!

From the jump, the little birdies spying on Bonisseur de la Bath (prior to his assignment as Noel Flantier) and a lover in the sack are getting more action.

Format: DVD
While OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies was one of the smartest and silliest spoofs to come off the Continent in years, sadly this followup falls into the all-too familiar sequel trap of, having used up its best gags first time round, playing up variations on the same but a bit larger in the hope that the overplaying will make the material funnier. Much of the time it doesn't.

Not that Jean Dujardin's wonderfully smug, xenophobic and heroically unaware reinvention of Jean Bruce's (serious) 50s-60s spy isn't still a wonderfully obnoxious creation - the kind of person who doesn't think Brazil is a dictatorship because the weather is too nice, thinks hippies are people who have sex with horses, Judaism is "a religion that forbids sausages" and who blithely goes into the German embassy to ask for a list of prominent ex-Nazis, he's anti-Semitic, sexist, De Gaullist (there's one wonderfully uncomfortable pause when the subject of French collaborators is raised) and so entrenched in his bourgeois values that he even beats up a Nazi's son for badmouthing his war criminal father.

But while there are some fun moments en route to its North by Northwest inspired climax on Rio's giant statue of Christ the Redeemer, not least an inspired hospital chase where Dujardin and the villain wake up in the same hospital ward, it doesn't quite work enough of the time this time round. Some ideas are better on paper than the screen, such as the opening that takes the notion of the 'expendable' Bond girls to near-Apocalyptic extremes, but unlike the first film it never looks and feels right.
