Critic Reviews for Something Like Happiness
Honest and incisive, a film without a message, just telling it like it is.
It's the comic, touching glimpses into a society run aground that make Something Like Happiness special and link it with the gentle fables of the Czech New Wave films of the 1960s.
Third time's the charm for Czech helmer Bohdan Slama, whose talent for locating the dignity in the downtrodden of his native Czech Republic is on moving display.
A thoughtfully performed, gently quirky human drama about choices made and their often surprising consequences.
...the dedication of the writer/director and his cast make it a worthwhile film for the movie buff.
Audience Reviews for Something Like Happiness
A great film, and a good example of the Czech mindset in dramatic films. No happy ending, in fact no ending at all, which allows the audience to imagine whatever they want to. Fans of this film should also watch The Wild Bees, an earlier effort by the same director. Many of the same actors were used in both films as well.
This movie makes me want to drink vodka and sing sad songs. Good character study... Not much on plot.
Really a beautiful film... the characters are accessible and the story is moving. My first Czech film and it made me want to see more!
