French box-office hit recently released here is comedy similar to our own ‘The Castle’


‘Welcome to the Sticks’ (Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis) has had phenomenal success in France having the biggest box office opening, even out grossing Titanic. The movie is about post office manager Philippe and his wife who love the sunny South of France but when Philippe gets caught trying to cheat his way into a transfer to a Riviera resort, he has to spend two years at a post office in the dreaded Nord Pas de Calais. This is France's northernmost region, reputed for its heavy industry, cool climate and incomprehensible rural dialect. ‘Welcome to the Sticks’ is a heartwarming movie full of French charm and comedian Danny Boon is terrific. This film was a joy to watch and also to make if the outtakes during the credits are anything to go by.
