Tacoma Sister Cities International Film Festival - Aalesund, Norway
March 15, 2012
Cultural program from our sister city of Aalesund, Norway begins at 6:15. The movie Happy Happy starts at 7:00.
Family is the most important thing in the world to Kaja. She is an eternal optimist in spite of living with a man who would rather go hunting with the boys, and who refuses to have sex with her because she "isn't particularly attractive" anymore. Whatever. That's life.
But when "the perfect couple" moves in next door, Kaja struggles to keep her emotions in check. Not only do these successful, beautiful, exciting people sing in a choir; they have also adopted a child from Ethiopia! These new neighbors open a new world to Kaja, with consequences for everyone involved. And when Christmas comes around, it becomes evident that nothing will ever be like before even if Kaja tries her very best.
Winner of the World Cinema Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, and an official selection at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's New Directors / New Films Festival, HAPPY, HAPPY is a warm comedy from award-winning Norwegian filmmaker Anne Sewitsky. HAPPY, HAPPY is Norway's official entry for Best Foreign Language Film for the 2011 Academy Awards.
