The story is about the relationship between husband and wife, Philippe and Julie. Philippe works for the postal service, Julie is depressed. So Philippe tries to get transferred to the French riviera in order to cheer her up. Things don’t go according to plan and he ends up in the north of France – the sticks.

Expecting things to be backward, hostile, and diseased, Philippe is pleasantly surprised to find that the north of France is not like people in the south believe it to be. Julie refuses to accompany him, so he doesn’t tell her the truth about Bergues, letting her believe that he is very brave to be able to survive there.

This is an extremely lovely, funny movie. The characters are likeable and the comedy is typically French. There are two couples who find love, and it is indeed one of the better romantic comedy films that I’ve seen of late. I whole-heartedly recommend this film.
