Sewitsky is a bit too fond of the handheld camera, but she is immediate, close. Her first picture, daring title and all, takes an empathic look at a permanent puzzle.

Good-natured Norwegian culture-clash comedy between city folks and their new small-town neighbours.

Like its heroine, the story never dwells on the heartbreak, delivering plenty of wry smiles and surprises as the four adults are forced to confront all the glaring problems in their marriages.

While highlighting the messier side of human interaction, this Norwegian black comedy blends snappy wit and romantic farce to keep us entertained even when things get rather dark.

Darkly comic and surprisingly touching in equal measure.

Happy, Happy starts out cartoonish and ends up oddly endearing.

I grinned a grin glazed with pure discomfort - which is, of course, the whole idea.

Sweet but never saccharine, Happy Happy is as delicate as Kaja and just as endearing.

Succeeds thanks to winning performances, assured direction and a sharply observed script, though it's slightly let down by a dodgy sub-plot.

A thoughtful, nicely played melodrama, bordering on patronising in its depiction of rural folk, but staying on the right side of the line - thanks to sympathetic performances.

With something to relate to in everyone, Happy, Happy is a fun dose of laughter, excitement and spontaneity with added hidden layers that is more than a little infectious.

Like The Kids Are All Right and infinite Woody Allen films before it, Happy Happy is a charming little picture that, despite being over-sentimental at times, is human enough to be considered a valuable gem.

The human follies abound: Running naked in the Norwegian snow, a couple of foolish affairs, a boy who wants to be a modern slave master.

Happy, Happy is the catharsis for anyone who's had a romance go south.

The curdled Norwegian comedy-drama "Happy, Happy," which dissects a pair of poisoned marriages, is sometimes heavy-handed (like its title) but has much to recommend it.

Sewitsky aims for quirky humanism along the lines of Finland's Aki Kaurismaki; she's helped along considerably by Kittelsen's sunny performance, though the film crosses over into Scandinavian kitsch with a series of country-swing interludes.

It is short and intense enough that it always seems on track, even if the train goes nowhere.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

Sewitsky isn't much of a visual stylist - every expense appears to have been spared on the film's washed-out videotaped look - but her compassion for her characters is welcome, welcome.
