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.
