“Welcome to the Sticks”
Director: Dany Boon
Although living comfortably in the South of France, Julie is depressed. Philippe, her post office administrator husband, decides to try, by any means, to obtain a transfer to the French Riviera. He is unfortunately caught while trying to con an inspector and is banished to Bergues in the cold North of France. Leaving his wife behind, he sets off for an area inhabited by hard-drinking rednecks, speaking an incomprehensible dialect called Ch’ti. But before long Philippe soon realises that all the stories were based on prejudices and that Bergues is not synonymous with hell.
