Happy, Happy

Two married couples, neighbors in a perpetually snowbound, rustic Scandinavian landscape, learn surprising stuff about themselves and their mates in this pleasantly warped Norwegian dramatic comedy, a 2011 award winner at Sundance. To Happy, Happy‘s credit, every aspect of Anne Sewitsky’s deadpan-observant feature debut is five degrees weirder than expected: Moose hunting is involved, and infidelity, and a quartet of guys in hipster suits who sing ironically misplaced American rockabilly tunes between dramatic developments to comment on how you always hurt the one you love, etc. B+
