AFTER the recent bloody wave of Scandi-noir in television and literature comes something a little lighter from our friends in the north. A prize-winner at the Sundance Film Festival, Happy, Happy is a Scandi comedy of sexual manners, no less. Sunny Kaja is married to dour Eirik, and their marriage is in the deep freeze even before the perfect couple, Sigve and Elisabeth, move in next door with their adorable son. But is there such a thing as perfect marriage and happy ever after? As Christmas approaches, they are all about to find out. Agnes Kittelsen is a delight as the fragile, nervy Kaja, always trying her best to make everyone happy while nursing her own sadnesses. A fun and frothy concoction, but Anne Sewitsky's film has its deep and telling moments too.
