A Very Secret Service – 2016

From France, with love - 24 x 26’


1960. The world stage is dominated by a superpower, the very symbol of freedom, the great victor of World War II: la belle France.

Young André Merlaux is thrilled when he’s accepted into the French secret service. Under the tutelage of three elite agents, André is entrusted with the toughest missions, like figuring out America’s obsession for communism and making friends with the Germans. André is a fast learner and may just become the finest of the finest secret agents. But he falls in love with the wrong girl…

Why we like it:

When we first saw A VERY SECRET SERVICE, we knew we had found the French missing link between James Bond and The Office. The perfect blend of fun and style.
