SJ Reviews: 'OSS 117: Cairo - Nest of Spies'...French spy farce is retro funny


Recommended Posts

This French Spy farce set in 1955's success at Box Office has made it a series of 3 movies. The next one is filming now, its set in Iran.

Its amazing how the filmakers make this film actually have the look and feel that it was filmed in 1955.

We follow the exploits of a French Maxwell Smart as he finds himself embroiled in Egypt in political turmoil.

Its all for laughs as he stumbles his way through spy stuff and always lands on his feet. Can be somewhat slow for the American audience as this is pure French cinema.

Its very very retro and played for 50s/60s laughs.
