Movie Info

In I Am Happiness on Earth, Emiliano looks at his life with the eyes of a film director, mixing the objective reality with the processes of artistic creation. The story he is filming flounders with his daily life, until his world is trapped in the lens of his camera. Confused, always alone and in front of a screen, now a transfigured reality, but at the same time a measurable, controllable and manipulable one. He listens to a song on a loop: one of those songs you sing or repeat as a prayer and forcing you to remember, believe and convince yourself. (c) Breaking Glass

  • At one point my notes included the gut reaction "This is awful."

  • Not to be a killjoy, but had Hernández simply made a more straightforward, conventional movie about the life and loves of a rising gay Mexican film director, he might have had something.

  • A film that is impeccable from a formal point of view, but that begins to stumble with the limits of its speech. [Full review in Spanish]

  • If the film defies conventional form, it does so without the gravitas that conceptual cohesion brings, quickly rendering its experimentation into gratuitous aesthetic masturbation.

  • (Director Julian) Hernandez provides loads of sexy scenery but not much sense. The film is heavy on slow, sensual storytelling that more often than not demands viewers' intuition rather than offer clearly delineated characters and relationships.

  • ...Hernandez merely revels in his own pretentiousness, staging one dully limp encounter after another with self-conscious camerawork and absurdly stilted drama that renders the entire project a pseudo-porny slog.
