Welcome to the South
Alberto (Claudio Bisio), post office manager of a small town in Brianza, under pressure of his wife Sylvia (Angela Finocchiaro), is willing to do anything to get the transfer to Milan. Even pretending to be disabled to climb in the ranking. But the trick does not work and as punishment, he is transferred in a small town in Campania, which to an inhabitant of the north is equivalent to a nightmare ...
Another one of the few Italian films that I saw and liked.
Benvenuti Al Sud is a really enjoyable comedy that sometimes makes us want to get into the role of the main character.
I have to see another movie the "Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis" who say Benvenuti Al Sud is a copying that movie...
This movie is almost a shot-for-shot remake of the French movie Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis. It is set in Italy and this time the post office manager has to move from the north to the south of the country heavily loaded with fears and prejudices towards his new colleagues. Apart from the different local colors the writers did not try to change the very successful concept of its predecessor. Almost every gag made it into this remake. So if you already watched the French Version (I did so twice) this one will suprise you in no way.
I really enjoyed the Ch'tis and would always prefer it to this remake. The chemistry between the two main characters was much better.…
Shitfilm! Lächerlicher Abklatsch von "Den Tschies". Genau die gleiche Story, nur in Italien. Das ist sooo arm. Leider auch alles total unlustig. NICHT ANSCHAUEN!
