A spy comedy well known to the French. In 2006, Jean Dujardin took on the role of Hubert Bonisseur de La Bath in OSS 117: Cairo, nest of spies by Michel Hazanavicius. An atypical secret agent, a bit playboy and proud, renowned for his sexist remarks and his approach to the fairer sex.
Among these strange ladies encountered during his trip to Egypt, we think in particular of Larmina El Akmar Betouche, played by Bérénice Bejo. A woman as distinguished as Audrey Hepburn and a strong ally for OSS 117. Despite their many spats, the duo offers memorable scenes for fans of the spy film. “The idea of the tandem with Jean Dujardin made me think of other film couples: Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant, or even… Gérard Depardieu and Pierre Richard”, affirmed the actress and partner of the actor in The Artist according to remarks relayed in Télé 7 Jours.
Facing her, another star was doing well in OSS 117: Cairo, nest of spies. This is Aure Atika, the sublime and seductive Princess Al Tarouk. A heroine who doesn’t hesitate to turn the head of the famous spy (even if it means getting caught at her own game), or getting her hair tied with her rival Bérénice Bejo on screen. “We rehearsed the choreography for a week with stuntmen”, assured the actress according to our colleagues.
A success of French cinema, the OSS 117 franchise has seen other emblematic stars who have given the reply to the famous spy. From Brazil in 2009 to black Africa (with Nicolas Bedos in 2021), discover the most beautiful “OSS Girls” of the saga through our slideshow.
