All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

[Looks] no further than the usual odd-couple clichés and opting for trite story beats rather than believable characterisation.

Two lost, wounded souls repair their lives in affecting dramedy

Full Review… | February 18, 2013

This is business as usual for Becker, albeit with a fine turn from French stalwart, Patrick Chesnais.

There's plenty to savour in Chesnais' expertly judged performance, while Becker's warmth towards the gentle pace of life in provincial France is palpable.

Audience Reviews for Bienvenue parmi nous (Welcome Abroad)

With a heavy-handed direction and absolutely no subtlety, this film starts well but soon turns into a cheap melodrama with a corny soundtrack and an artificial ending. Besides, Chesnais may be fantastic, but Jeanne Lambert is terrible as an annoying caricature of a teenager.
