French spy film parody, sending up the OSS 117 series of spy films made in the 1950s and 1960s, which were in turn based on a series of novels by Jean Bruce. The film follows the exploits of French secret agent OSS 117 (played by French comedian Jean Dujardin) in 1950s Egypt. The mysterious disappearance of OSS agent Jack Jefferson (Philippe Lefebvre) coincides with that of a Russian cargo ship from the Port of Cairo. Agent OSS 117, who has a shared past with Jefferson, is sent in to investigate. He soon finds himself caught in an international web of intrigue - but still manages to time for a romantic dalliance with Egyptian princess Al Tarouk (Aure Atika).
