OSS 117: Nest Of Spies

Decided to catch OSS 117: Nest of Spies at the ICA the other day after reading their mailout, which listed a bunch of four star reviews. I was still a little dubious because a) I'd absolutely positively never heard of it and b) the ICA often does very weird stuff.

It was well worth it. Others have written nice accurate reviews, to which I have little to add, so I won't write a huge review here. It's just a lot of fun, even taking into account the free wine we unexpectedly got with our meal - adding to the bottle we'd already bought. Surplus wine + good friends + french farce = great Monday.

Reputedly using sixties era equipment and film stock, it perfectly captures the look of films of that era, right down to Saul Bass style titles. See it at a cinema if you can.
