Georgian writer-director Nana Ekvtimishvili (In Bloom) brings a rare subtlety and sensitivity to this ironically titled domestic drama.
[An] enthralling and masterful achievement.
The scenes with Manana's relatives are masterful presentations of family as an overwhelming experience.
Remarkable blend of comedy and sadness.
It may well be the best film I've seen this year.
It's a simple, somewhat mundane scenario that, in the hands of a terrific cast and two talented filmmakers, is transformed into a minor Greek comic-tragedy, with one fearless woman trying to stave off loved ones who smother her with guilt and affection.
... stories like this still have the power to intrigue us because these anxieties are really not that remote: the figure of the woman who choses independence in this way is a spectre that continues to haunt the patriarchal imagination.
Ia Shughliashvili's performance as Manana is wonderfully understated - the kind of performance that doesn't feel like active performing at all.
Through simple and genuine storytelling and wonderfully chaotic scenes of domestic disputes and disorder, Manana (Ia Shugliashvili) is the heroine of her own adventure.
... I couldn't have been happier with it.
The sparseness and patience of My Happy Family are integral to its power, matching the inscrutability of Manana herself.
My Happy Family casually lays out the domestic space where the story's events takes place with acutely detailed cultural specificity.
