Drolly understated French comedy OSS 117 spoofs the superagents of the Bond era (it’s set in 1955), but its hero isn’t a broad nitwit. As played by Jean Dujardin, with an egocentric leer that suggests Sacha Baron Cohen impersonating Sean Connery, he’s a very subtle nitwit who is so glad to be living the espionage life that he couldn’t care less about a crisis involving radical Cairo Muslims, Nazis, and a chicken farm. There are more chuckles than laughs, but the film does a witty job of replicating the hermetic, overlit shot language of ’60s studio movies. B
