35mm presentation - He's France's top agent, Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath (the fabulous Jean Dujardin), better known as OSS 117, agent double-one-seven (or "one seventeen" as he would have it). Suave yet clueless, a cross between James Bond and Austin Powers, OSS 117 is back for another mission, following his smash debut in OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies. Dispatched to Rio to purchase an incriminating microfilm containing the names of French WWII collaborators from a Nazi in hiding (Rüdiger Vogler), he teams up with a beautiful Mossad colonel (Louise Monot)—after first mistaking her for the secretary—whose mini skirt and kinky boots disguise dangerously forward-thinking views on women's lib and world politics. Along the way they encounter the Nazi's hippie son Heinrich, a C.I.A. agent named Trumendous, and a man-eating alligator. Masked Mexican wrestler bodyguards, not to mention pesky Chinese hitmen after agent 117 for a past grievance, make matters irksome. Lost in Rio culminates in a North By Northwest-meets-Vertigo sequence on Rio's famous Christ the Redeemer statue overlooking the city that you won't want to miss!
