To please his wife and save his marriage, a French public servant concocts a workplace scam in an attempt to move to the Riviera. When he is found out, his punishment is a transfer to France’s northernmost region, where supposedly the weather is bad, the food weird and the locals unintelligible. But not all is as it seems and so he embarks on yet another deception. Winner of multiple awards, this is the highest-grossing French film of all time!
