Willkommen bei den Sch'tis ( visu )
9 editions published in 2009 in 4 languages and held by 35 libraries worldwide
Seiner Frau Julie (Zoe Felix) zuliebe wollte sich der Postbeamte Philippe (Kad Merad) an die Côte d'Azur versetzen lassen, wird aber wegen eines dreisten Schwindels ins nordfranzösische Bergues verbannt. Die Gattin denkt nicht daran, ihm zu folgen, also muss er allein losziehen und befürchtet Schlimmes. Das Gegenteil tritt ein: Kollegen wie Antoine (Dany Boon) werden Freunde, der Dialekt "Sch'ti" ist einfach und seine Frau vermisst Philippe auch nicht. Der erfolgreichste französische Film aller Zeiten ist eine herzerfrischende Komödie, die spielerisch Vorurteile unterläuft und einer verleumdeten Volksgruppe - den Sch'tis - ein Denkmal an der Kinokasse setzt. Klischees und Regionales nimmt Komiker Dany Boon gekonnt auf die Schippe. (Quelle: www.books.ch)

Das französisch-belgische Grenzörtchen Courquain blickt schweren Zeiten entgegen - seit in Europa so kriminelle Beschlüsse wie das Schengener Abkommen in Kraft treten: die Abschaffung der stationären Grenzkontrollen. Das jedenfalls findet der belgische Grenz-Beamte Ruben. Sein Gegenspieler Mathias Ducatel steht nur wenige Meter entfernt. Die Bedrohung durch den Franzosen ist um einiges gravierender, als all die drogenschmuggelnden Ganoven, die sich hier ebenfalls regelmäßig tummeln. Rubens schlimmste Befürchtungen werden wahr, als er zum mobilen französisch-belgischen Patrouillendienst antreten soll, und das ausgerechnet mit Mathias, der noch dazu mit seiner hübschen Schwester liiert ist
