Somebody told me during the Cannes Film Festival that OSS 117: Nest of Spies is funny and that I should try and catch it in Paris (it opened in France in early May), but it’s French-made and was therefore playing sans English subtititles so there wouldn’t have been much point in my going. It played three times at the Seattle Film Festival, but too late for me. (There’s some talk about a DVD loaner kicking around.) The trailer tells you it’s a somewhat dryer Austin Powers, and that Michel Hazanavincius, the director, is good at reanimating the look and mood of 1950s thrillers.
