In a tiny border town between France and Belgium, life is all about customs. So when headlines announce the opening of the E.C. borders in the early 90’s, a loud cry of panic goes up – ‘Noooooooooooooo!’

Ruben is a Belgian customs officer with an abiding hatred of all things French. Mathias is the French customs officer who’s secretly in love with Ruben’s sister, the girl from the chocolate shop, Louise. The couple’s love will be tested by a series of hilarious misunderstandings involving a drug smuggling ring, a frog-hating Belgian father, and Ruben’s desire to see his sister get married… to a Belgian colleague, that is. It’s waffles vs. camembert, in a fight to the finish.

Nothing to Declare is the new hotly anticipated comedy by Dany Boon, whose previous success,/Bienvenue chez les Ch’tis/ (Welcome to the Sticks; 2008), raced to the top of the French box office with admissions totalling more than 20 million, ranking itself just behind Titanic.

Also an actor Dany Boon (My Best Friend) performs in all his films. Here he embodies the character of the French customs officer, Mathias, composing an irresistible duo with Ruben, the Belgian customs officer played by Benoît Poelvoorde (Coco Before Chanel, Man Bites Dog, The Carriers Are Waiting).
