SFF 2011 Day 2 - Trailer of the Day is HAPPY, HAPPY
Today's pick for the Sydney Film Festival Trailer of the Day is the sexy, sexy HAPPY, HAPPY. Here's what the SFF Program says about the film:
World Cinema Grand Jury Prize-winner at this year's Sundance Film Festival, Happy, Happy is a sexy comedy that takes delight in indiscretion and snowy romps. Kaja (Agnes Kittelsen) is endlessly chipper (think Poppy in Mike Leigh's Happy-Go-Lucky), although sex is in short supply. Her somewhat dour husband, Eirik (Joachim Rafaelsen, Elling) and young son fail to share her enthusiasm when a new couple and their adopted son move in next door. Elisabeth (Maibritt Saerens, Frederikke, SFF 2008) and Sigve (Henrik Rafaelsen) are sophisticated, beautiful and they can sing - in short, they're everything Kaja would like to be or do. Dinner party conversations soon reveal the cracks in the façade and before you know it neighbours are bonking neighbours. A Greek chorus singing traditional American spirituals and hymns lightens the darker moments of Anne Sewitsky's effervescent debut.
