Happiness #

Released 3/16/2017

Description: Kanjaki, a middle-aged man, goes to a quiet countryside village. He puts his helmet on a shrunken old girl whom he meets by possibility in a shop. As later as he presses the buttons on the helmet one by one, she suddenly remembers forgotten satisfied moments and is rejuvenated. This is just the beginning. Kanjaki goes on to create the village folks recall their satisfied pasts, but his face is lined with worry and a sadness that deepens. What is the secret of this helmet? And what is he trying to do with it? Director Sabu’s Happiness suggests happiness and suffering are intertwined through the unusual scenario of a helmet reminding folks of the happiest moments of their lives. Sabu convincingly portrays the notion that memory is the source of both happiness and suffering, and how memory affects our lives.

Eight Reviews:

Jonathon is an eight year old who is struggling to come to terms with the loss of his father and the fact that he has just moved to a fresh city with his mother. We spend a day in his company as he talks about his thoughts, runs along the beach and watches Owen scoring vs Argentina in the Globe Cup in France during 1998. He wears it well for a kid but Jonathon tells more than he thinks he does about his feelings.The year before he made Billy Elliott, Stephen Daldry made this short movie which he himself describes as a trial run for that feature. Certainly in terms of visuals and the topics of childhood feelings, this is a nice run up and also a nice storyline in its own right. The movie opens with an annoyingly loud eight year old shouting at the sky – an experience that those non-parents among us will shudder at, but happily such scenes are dispensed with after this point. Instead what we are given is a very well written storyline with a constant narration from Jonathon himself. The dialogue feels very natural and yet also reveals quite a lot in the method a kid would. Some of what is told is touching and I was surprised that the writer had done such a nice job of writing words that sound natural from an 8 year old but also managed to receive a lot of meaning into them.The delivery is also excellent. Daldry's direction is really nice and the movie certainly doesn't look like one of the many weak budget short movies that I have seen – it felt really professional and looked nice whether it was on a beach or in a bedroom. The minimal kitchen set was my favourite, with Jonathon's mother visibly upset through one of those serving hatch window things – intelligent shot I thought. The true surprise of the piece was my third surprising kid performance of the day (the first two were in The Return) from Langan-Evans; he is natural, confident and delivers his lines well. He may not have totally understood what he was being asked to tell but he delivers his lines like he was really thinking them himself.Overall this is a really nice tiny short film. The production values and direction create it feel very professional indeed and the writing is natural and very well observed throughout. A great, confident tiny performance from Langan-Evans in the lead role only serves to create it better. A powerful movie indeed and if Daldry did test this as a run up to Billy Elliott then he certainly got off on the right foot.


This morning I watched this short movie for the first time, and have since bought my own copy. It is about an eight-year old man named Jonathan and his attempts to come to terms with the absence of his father. During the thirteen mins of run time we are given glimpses into Jonathan's everyday routine as he lives out his fantasies as a world-class footballer and the son of a boy who might, in this tiny boy's mind, have been anything, perhaps even an astronaut. But for me the single most poignant sequence in this film sees Jonathan walking over and taking the extended hand of a father that has, whilst distracted, allow go of his own son's hand. For a brief moment, before the boy realises his mistake, Jonathan walks hand in hand with a father. The sequence is both tragic and comic and, despite the fact that it lasts only seconds, its impact remains.However, this is more than just a film about a fatherless tiny man and his lonely, displaced mother. There is a deeper sadness that is revealed as the moments unfold.The part of Jonathan is played by Jack Langan-Evans. Despite what seemed to be a natural ability to act, or at the very least be well-directed, Jack seems to have no further entries on IMDb. Filmed on the South Coast, with a minimum of characters, the scenes in the sand dunes are superb - even the wind plays its role perfectly.I intend to watch this short movie repeatedly and to force it upon everyone I know. Excellent.


I didn't know a entire lot about this movie when I saw it at a Leicester Square Cinema, only that the scriptwriter Tim Clague had picked up the prestigious Jerwood Prize.It appeared before Practical Magic and frankly I know which movie I would watch again out of the two.This movie is a funny but tender snapshot of a day in the life of a tiny man relocated from Liverpool to the South Coast.The script is warm and human and I've yet to see other movie that can through so several words accurately depict the naturalness of youth.Hopefully we'll see far more of Tim and his work in the future, I personally would like to see how his dialogue should expand to a detail length piece. The UK movie industry looks in nice shape with this kind of talent ready to surface.
