Happy Hour (Happî awâ) (2015)
Critic Reviews for Happy Hour (Happî awâ)
In Happy Hour, and particularly in that beautiful scene on the ferry, the world is not just gliding by-it is being slid into place before our eyes, as if for the first time.
Hamaguchi is a genius of scene construction, turning the fierce poetry of painfully revealing and pugnaciously wounding dialogue into powerful drama that's sustained by a seemingly spontaneous yet analytically precise visual architecture.
Running nearly five and a half hours, Hamaguchi's movie foregrounds the quotidian, revealing the latent drama in the most seemingly mundane moments.
If "Happy Hour" doesn't quite deliver all it promises, that may only be because it promises quite a lot.
