Welcome to the Sticks (2008) Trailer
Trailer for Welcome to the Sticks.
Philippe Abrams is manager of the post office in Salon-de-Provence. He is married to Julie, whose depressive nature makes his life impossible. To please her, Philippe tries to obtain a transfer to the Cote d'Azur. But is, instead, transferred to Bergues, a small town in the North.
For the Abrams, very prejudiced southerners, the North is a nightmare, a freezing region, inhabited by uncouth beings, spluttering out an incomprehensible language, 'cheutimi'. Philippe goes alone. To his great surprise, he discovers a charming place, a warm bunch and welcoming people and makes a friend: Antoine, the postman and village bell-ringer. When Philippe returns to Salon, Julie refuses to believe that he likes it in the North. She even thinks that he is lying so as not to upset her. To please her and to make his life easier, Philippe makes her believe that actually, his life in Bergues is hell. But when Julie decides to move to Bergues, Philippe must either tell the truth, or keep deceiving her. Showing exclusively at Cine Lumiere in South Kensington from 1st April 2008.
