'''''OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies''''' ('''''OSS 117: Le Caire, nid d'espions''''') is a 2006 French satirical film lampooning European spy movies, Connery-era ''Film/JamesBond'' films, and French political context of the 1950s. Creator/JeanDujardin (who physically resembles a young Sean Connery) plays Hubert, a.k.a. OSS 117, a French secret agent sent to Cairo to investigate the mysterious disappearances both of another OSS agent and a ship full of illegal weaponry. His prowess in hand-to-hand combat and seduction is matched by his bumbling stupidity and utter ignorance of Muslim culture.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Played horribly, ''horribly'' straight by 117. He seems to think the Suez Canal was built by the Ancient Egyptians, and the Pyramids were completed last week with international help.
