Bienvenue chez les CH’TIS  at Alliance Francaise de KOTTE 

The film to be screened at the Alliance Francaise de KOTTE at 6.00pm on 10 December is Bienvenue chez les CH’TIS.  

Philippe Abrams is the manager of a branch of the French postal service in a town in the south of France.  To cheer his depressive wife, he tries to get a transfer to the Côte d’Azur by pretending to be chronically disabled.  When his scheme is uncovered, he is instead transferred to Bergues, a small town in the north of the country.  To the Abrams, this marks a fate worse than death.  It is well known to southerners like them that the North is a cold, inhospitable place, populated by uneducated rustics whose accents make them impossible to understand.  Since Julie refuses to accompany him, Philippe goes there alone, and is surprised at what he discovers.

Directed by Dany Boon, this 1h 42min 2008 film stars Zoe Felix, Anne Marivin, Philippe Duquesne.  

This screening is free of charge and open to the public at the AF de Kotte at 139 Jawatte Road, Colombo 05.
