Overview

Synopsis

Imogène McCarthery
As co-directed by Alexandre Charlot and Franck Magnier, this French spy comedy stars Catherine Frot as the title character - a middle-aged woman with some unusual characteristics. Half Scotch and half Russian, she loves playing rugby and performing on her bagpipes, has a nasty temper, and repeatedly drowns herself in whisky. Though she lives in London, she considers herself an exile. The story opens on a beautiful day in May 1962; as the official secretary at the Amirauté, Imogène visits her superior, Sir Woolish, and promptly expects to be terminated for her wild and unconventional behavior. Instead, she's given a new assignment - Woolish asks her to serve as the convoy, transporting top-secret plans for a new airplane to a contact in Callander, Scotland - which just so happens to be Imogène's place-of-birth. Problems begin to arise, however, when she boards a train and runs headfirst into three ruthless Bolshevik agents. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
