Satirical continuation of the OSS 117 film franchise follows Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath as he untangles a web of mystery and intrigue in Cairo.

Jean Dujardin is Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath, Agent OSS 117, arriving on the big screen not only as a camp send-up of earlier OSS 117 films but also the entire James Bond-esque 1950s/60s spy genre. Tasked with operating missing OSS agent Jack Jefferson's poultry farm in the Arab tinderbox of Cairo, Egypt, our smarmy agent must navigate his way through a web of mystery brought about by the disappearance of a Soviet-flagged cargo ship, chasing women and landing in a number of ridiculous situations on his way to saving the day.
