The 2021 Cannes Film Festival was closed on a light note, with French spy spoof OSS 117: From Africa With Love, a Gallic twist on James Bond by way of Pink Panther. The first two parodic films of the “OSS 117” franchise, which were directed by “The Artist” helmer Michel Hazanavicius, were major B.O. hits in France and traveled around the world! We have teamed up with Clap Français to offer you a French learning experience around the 3 films… More info below!
1981. Hubert Bonisseur de La Bath, alias OSS 117, is back. He has aged, but he is still just as pretentious. For this new delicate, perilous and torrid mission, he has to team up with his young colleague, the promising OSS 1001 played by Pierre Niney. – Synopsis
« This is an entertaining popcorn movie that’s also a healthy satire of imperialist self-assurance, perhaps best summed up by Hubert’s sincere belief that everybody on Earth wishes they were French. ». – Deadline

We will be kicking the night off with drinks at the cinema’s bar from 7pm, followed by the screening of the movie at 8pm. Tickets available online here: https://www.luminor-hoteldeville.com/reserver/ (please reserve early to avoid disappointment).
