THE HAPPIEST GIRL IN THE WORLD – RADU JUDE 2009
CICAE ART CINEMA AWARD – BERLINALE 2009 Forum
Synopsis : This sweet, simple fascinating story highlights the daily life of a Romanian family that leaves the countryside to visit Bucarest for the day. This subtle comedy smartly unveils the economic and social contradictions Romania experiences.
The jury’s verdict: The film depicts a world where driving a car does not get you really far, drink orange juice does not satisfy your thirst and the only freedom you are given is in a cigarette secretely smoked. The strengh of the film lies in its ability to entertain while presenting excellent artistic qualities.
