Critic Reviews for A Happy Event

All Critics (4)

... it has something that few modern films do: a realistic insight into the female perspective.

The tale alternates between whimsy and realism a little too much...but is pleasant, passable viewing.

July 3, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Desire, love and madness leads to motherhood in this warts-and-all look at the A to Z of what happens to a woman when she has a baby... there's an inherent feeling of truth about the work and performances, resonating especially with female audiences
