The best laughter therapy ever.
Philippe, a French public servant from the warm Southern part of France, is
banished to the far and cold Northern one. His biggest dream to come back as
soon as possible disappears however with every minute. The movie, playing with local prejudices
and using linguistic gags, is not something very exceptional. It makes you
however laugh. And - to our minds - it is exceptional enough.
The French word Ch’ti is slang
for people from Northern France. Dany Boon knows
this region very well. He was born there 1966 as Daniel Faid Hamidou, son of an
Algerian father and a French mother.
There is one mystery connected
to this movie - its results. Its budget was 14.4 million $ and the box office -
245.1 million $. It was the biggest one in French history. No wonder. Maria&Paul Summa summarum: 9,5/10
