Rien à Déclarer plot

This is the story of two customs officers who learn that their small permanent customs post on the border between Courquain (France) and Koorkin (Belgium) will disappear on January 1, 1993. The Belgian Ruben Vandevoorde, an overzealous customs officer and Francophobe from father to son, is forced to set up the first mixed Franco-Belgian flying brigade. His French partner will be Mathias Ducatel, someone he absolutely cannot get along with, but who, to everyone's surprise, was spontaneously willing to become Vandevoorde's regular partner. Together they will scour the back roads in the border area, looking for drug couriers and other smugglers. However, customs officer Ducatel has had a secret relationship with Louise Vandevoorde, Ruben's sister, for almost a year now. Mathias will therefore spare no effort to make his new customs assignment a success and win the sympathy and esteem of his beloved's brother.

This movie had all appearances against it. As enamored as I am with some French productions, I hate the bleak comedies they make so passionately. French are not funny. So, completely in the style of the film, a nice generalized comment has been thrown in. The enlarged ''battle'' between Walloons and French is depicted wonderfully over-the-top with strikingly caricatured characters and a nice rural atmosphere. I like it when cinema puts a bell jar over reality and presents us with a world that has little to do with ''the real'' world. Every character - no matter how racist, criminal or cunning - has something innocent and funny about them. Also, the jokes are pretty well written. Don't expect subtleties, but well-timed slapstick and a fine chemistry between the comedians Benoît Poelvoorde and Dany Boon.

Bit of a Louis de Funès-like film; never really funny. Not recommended.

Entertaining indeed, I don't really have much more to say about it. Those screaming cartoonish humor ditto characters also suit me less. A genre that often comes from France. It is of course a film that drips with enthusiasm and at times that certainly comes to the viewer. So that's definitely a merit in itself.

It shouldn't be taken very seriously, but if the humor comes across as faint rather than successful, then of course there is very little left, despite an excellent Poelvoorde.
