For giggles and James Bond-style capers, try OSS 117: Alerte Rouge en Afrique Noire. The third instalment of the hilarious spoof spy movie franchise sees Oscar-winning actor Jean Dujardin again in the lead role of Hubert Bonisseur de La Bath, a.k.a. OSS 117.
Ibiza is a road-trip comedy that sees a family have a disastrous holiday on the Spanish party island. Things get a little more serious with child autism drama Hors Normes (The Specials) starring Vincent Cassel and Reda Kateb.
