Synopsis:
Although living a comfortable life in Salon-de-Provence, a charming town in the South of France, Julie (Zoé Félix) has been feeling depressed for a while. To please her, Philippe Abrams (Kad Merad), a post office administrator, her husband, tries to obtain a transfer to a seaside town, on the French Riviera, at any cost. The trouble is that he is caught red-handed while trying to scam an inspector. Philippe is immediately banished to the distant unheard of town of Bergues, in the Far North of France.
Leaving his child and wife behind, the crucified man leaves for his frightening destination, a dreadfully cold place inhabited by hard-drinking, unemployed rednecks, speaking an incomprehensible dialect called Ch'ti. Philippe soon realizes that all these ideas were nothing but prejudices and that Bergues is not synonymous with hell...

Quite a Change from French Arthouse Films! - Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis review by MS

Spoiler Alert
21/03/2016

This is a lightweight, mass market comedy. Draws on the old clichés of a fish out of water, with a soft south-of-France manager trying to adapt to life with good-hearted but unsophisticated hicks in the northern Pas de Calais area. Much of the humour revolves around their rural dialect; the subtitler has made an attempt to convey what it is like, using English. Although it's probably much funnier if you speak French well, there are quite a few laughs anyway. Think a middle-class Cambridge person suddenly being sent to work in a remote North-east English town and you get the idea.

This is no Le Cop - Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis review by NM

Despite breaking box office records in France, this is no Le Cop. We found it charming rather than hilarious. The biggest problem was sorting out the subtitles, which are on the signpost on the left of the screen under 'Versions'.

Interesting & unusual premise for the film .Stick with it for the first 20 minutes when you get used to the unusual accents & you get your reward .

Good story , well acted particularly the 2 main actors & it gets more amusing as it goes on .

A fine effort that I enjoyed.
