bright and sassy look at what it means to be Swiss
20 September 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What is the essential quality that binds the tiny nation of 4 languages? Why are they that way, thinking that they speak French, German and Italian better than the respective nations from which the language names derive? Bienvenue en Suisse strives in between jabs to answer just that question.

I think it helps to have at least been to Switzerland to understand this film. Not that understanding can't come, but certainly appreciation is easier when one realizes that 4 20's and 14 is really how the French say the number that the Swiss have invented a word for in order to make it 94. The movie does a fair job of skewering the French in the process, of course, but the French girl does seem a bit more in touch with reality.

Never the less a good time is had by all and the movie stereo types and jabs fun, but never seems really nasty or mean spirited and that makes all the difference.

A good movie, well made and enjoyable, but no more than a 6.
