The questionable black-historical shorthand detracts from what is otherwise a well-performed and fitfully amusing film.
A dour Nordic humor informs this small but appealing comedy of couples in crisis in the snowy North.
Kittelsen, whose overbite and doe eyes give her an air of vulnerability, makes Kaja distinctly simple but not stupid.
| Original Score: B
An inventive Norwegian comedy that depicts the redemptive power of an extramarital affair
| Original Score: 3/5
Happy, Happy is another gust of smugly cold air from the land of Bent Hamer.
| Original Score: 2/4
Happy Happy is an achingly awkward, surprisingly moving and very funny skewering of modern society's tendency towards self-fulfilment over shared experience.
Caught between humor and drama, the average audience will not put out the effort to stick with this film.
| Original Score: 5/10
