Welcome to the Sticks


Welcome to the Sticks
The most successful French film of all time is a charming comedy about not jumping to the wrong conclusions. A post office manager is trying to wangle a transfer to the Riviera, to please his wife. Unfortunately he is caught trying to cheat his way there, and punished by getting posted to the north of France for two years. The new village is a joke among the French... cold, miserable, and the locals speak their own weird dialect. However once there, he settles in okay and makes new friends, all the while feeding his wife back home misconceptions about the situation. Then one day, she feels so sorry for him that she moves up to join him... In French with English subtitles.
