“Welcome to the Sticks” is a 2008 French comedy written and directed by Dany Boon, who also stars in the film.

The story centers around a manager in the postal service who is reluctantly sent to run an office in a rural section of northern France.

(In English, “the sticks” is a term used to refer to rural, less sophisticated areas.)

By the end of the film, the postal manager falls in love with the region and its people.
