caption this! image from ‘OSS 117: Lost in Rio’

Fun for Wednesdays! We look at an image from an upcoming movie or TV show and write snarky, witty, or otherwise entertaining captions for it. No prizes, it’s just for fun.

Peut-être I shouldn’t have asked that cute stewardess to pull my finger…”:

Music Box Films tells us about the movie:

Writer-director Michel Hazanavicius (“OSS 117- Cairo, Nest of Spies”)’ ultra-stylized spoof follows suave secret agent Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath – better known as OSS 117, the pride of French Intelligence (French comic superstar Jean Dujardin in the title role) – as he travels across Brazil in 1967 with a beautiful Mossad agent (Louise Monod) on the trail of a hidden, high-ranking Nazi.

Twelve years after his exploits in Cairo, OSS 117 is back on a new mission at the other end of the world. As he tracks down a microfilm that is compromising for the State, France’s most famous secret agent will have to capture a Nazi blackmailer. From Rio´s sunny beaches to luxuriant Amazonian forests, from the depths of secret grottos to the top of Corcovado’s Christ, a new adventure is about to begin. Whatever the danger, whatever the stakes, whatever the indelicate remark, you can always count on Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath to find a way out…

Hazanavicius’ films are satirical reinterpretations of the popular French series of post WW2 spy novels and films featuring agent OSS 117. As in his first installment, Hazanavicius pays impeccable visual homage to 1960s films and TV shows a la James Bond and “Get Smart” while making his hero outrageously politically incorrect.

I haven’t seen the first film, OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies, yet, but I think I need to soon…

OSS 117: Lost in Rio opens in New York and Los Angeles on May 7. It is already available on Region 1 DVD in Canada from Amazon Canada and will be out next week on Region 2 DVD; preorder at Amazon U.K.

Visit OSS 117: Lost in Rio’s IMDB page or official English-language site for more info.
