“Bond. James Bond.” The first time this sentence was ever heard.

Here he comes to the WSC, the most British of all secret agents, James Bond, a.k.a. 007. This is the opportunity to discover the first “James Bond” that was adapted for the cinema from Ian Fleming’s novels. So this is the film that contributed to the setting up of all the characteristics attributed to 007: amazing, useful gadgets, nice cars, slight touches of humour, cracked bad guys, Bond girls and things that could never happen in real life. The first film of a long series that still goes on today...

After the murders of a British secret agent and his secretary in Jamaica, James Bond (Sean Connery) is sent there by his boss, “M”, to investigate these crimes. He will soon be led to the mysterious Dr. No who has established his HQ on an island where he does secret research. Professor Dent, a geologist working for Dr. No, has found radioactive rocks on a nearby island. Who really is Dr. No? And what is he planning? This is just the beginning, for Bond will have to face many traps on his way to the truth.

Sean Connery embodies a very classy and distinguished Bond as he did in six other 007 films. He was the one who established the so famous image we all bear in mind of the most successful of all secret agents cinema has ever seen.

Come and see how the whole “James Bond” adventure began. If you like old “James Bond” films you will not be disappointed- This film is full of action and above all suspense!
