Happy happy trailer
Though contentedly married to her loveless high-school sweetheart, a cheerful housewife (Agnes Kittelsen) lands in hot water when a risque encounter goes too far.
Happy, Happy (Norwegian: ) is a 2010 Norwegian comedy film directed by Anne Sewitsky. The film was selected as the Norwegian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 84th Academy Awards, but it did not make the final shortlist.
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.
The film tells the tale of two supposedly contented couples, where in truth, there are dark secrets of homosexuality and previous affairs. Kaja (the Happy Happy) has gone on her housewife affairs unbeknownst her loveless husband is gay. On the other hand, the couple that comes to visit in the guest house is apparently so happy happy as well, but the reality is there is no joint interest.
Matters take a turn for the worse or better when Sigve buys a Couples Board Game and truths as to Eiriks lack of knowledge for his wifes intimacy coupled with a tension between Elisabeth and her husband are revealed. Kaja begins a passionate affair with Sigve, and Eirik likewise comes on to Sigve; however the passion in this case is not returned.
