OSS 117 - Lost in Rio (2009)
Another thing I love about these movies, both of them, is how flawlessly they have managed to recreate the look and feel of not just James Bond films, but Matt Helm films, and Derek Flynt films, and the whole '60s spy genre in general. And Dujardin has an uncanny physical knack of mimicking Sean Connery, especially the way he walks across the room. No easy task: that's a pretty great walk.
It's possible that Dujardin (and his costar from Cairo: Nest of Spies, the lovely Berenice Bejo (above)) might both become household names pretty soon. Their new film, a silent comedy called The Artist got rave reviews at Cannes. You heard it here first.
