oss-117-cairo-nest-of-spies-april-3rdPresented jointly with Abingdon & District Town-Twinning association, this is a spy comedy with a bit of bite, based on a Jean Bruce novel, featuring Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo, co-stars of the 2012 Oscar-winnning The Artist. The event also serves as a party to celebrate the end of our main season, 5 Broken Cameras (showing 27th March) being the last film included in seasonal subscriptions.

“[Hazanavicius] throws in some supremely silly running gags, while keeping the plot moving at a clip and establishing a rapport between the hapless hero and his insouciantly accomplished assistant, Bérénice Bejo” – David Parkinson, Empire. (Cert 12A)
