Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis • FILMFEST HAMBURG

Welcome to the Sticks

OT: Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis

Dany Boon // France, 2007
Fiction Feature // FF2008



For someone from the South of France to live in the North of France is unthinkable – and in this case unspeakably funny. Postman Philippe (Kad Merad) is involuntarily relocated to the rough North – to the ‘Ch’tis’, as the Northerners are called due to their dialect. He soon realizes that in spite of their intelligibility, the people are very hearty, including postman Antoine (Dany Boon). Then his wife wants to join him in his ‘misery’… An audience of 20 million makes this the most successful French film ever!
