OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies (OSS 117 : Le Caire, nid d'espions)
Directed by Michel Hazanavicius (2006)

A refreshing comedy and hilarious spoof on the spy genre, this film stars Academy Award winner Jean Dujardin as secret agent OSS 117 and illustrates his many adventures in Egypt in 1955.

A miracle! Esthetic, with an acute sense of photography…OSS 117 revives the elite entertainment genre.” Les Cahiers du Cinéma

Persepolis
Directed by Vincent Paronnaud and Marjane Satrapi (2007)

This animated film tells a poignant coming-of-age story, amidst war, repression and family tragedy, of a precocious and outspoken young Iranian girl. Still relevant today, her story is moving, exhilarating, and depicted beautifully.

...whimsical and daring, a perfect expression of the imagination’s resistance to the literal-minded and the power-mad, who insist that the world can be seen only in black and white.” The New York Times
