How about this:

---
#include <stdio.h>
#include <Python.h>

int main(void)
{
  PyObject *module, *dict, *foo, *result;
  double x=5.5, y=6.6;

  Py_Initialize();

  module=PyImport_ImportModule("exmpl");
  dict=PyModule_GetDict(module);
  foo=PyDict_GetItemString("foo");
  result=PyObject_CallFunction(foo, "dd", x, y);
  printf("The answer is %.2f!\n", PyFloat_AsDouble(result));

  Py_Finalize();

  return 0;
};
