Happiness


A complex and controversial movie for the art circuit, which I found confusing at times because of the large ensemble cast which has no single star. The film revolves around the lives -- and sex lives -- of three sisters, and the other people in their lives. All the characters in the film have sexual hangups or problems of one sort or the other, and these are explored. The most shocking theme is no doubt the respected family man who is into little boys. Not for sensitive viewers. The film is billed as a black comedy but there are few laughs, unless you are really sick.
