The Toronto Jewish Film Festival is hosting a double bill of cult films at the Toronto Underground Cinema this Saturday night, and the great folks at the fest have hooked us up with 10 pairs of tickets. Details on what’s playing below.
OSS 117: Lost in Rio (9:15 p.m.)
From Oscar winners Michel Hazanavicius and Jean Dujardin—the director and star of The Artist—comes OSS 177: Lost in Rio, a laugh-out-loud parody of 1960s spy films that’s pitched somewhere between Austin Powers, Mel Brooks, and Matt Helm. French spy OSS 117 (Dujardin) teams up with a beautiful Israeli Mossad agent to capture an ex-Nazi living in South America.
This is Sodom (11:30 p.m.)
Matching the outrageousness of Monty Python, This Is Sodom is a hilarious biblical farce that follows a cast of characters that includes God, Abraham, Lot, and Lot’s Wife, during the last few days of Sodom, the most famous Sin City in history. The biggest Israeli blockbuster in 25 years, this film features a cast made up of stars from the show Eretz Nehederet (A Wonderful Country) which has been one of the most successful TV comedies in Israel, comparable to Saturday Night Live in North America.
