The Happiest Girl In The World (15)
Friday 28 May 2010
The rise of the new Romanian cinema continues apace with this sly satire on consumerism.
A teenage girl (Andreea Bosneag) wins a car in a competition, only to find her good fortune slowly soured by her bickering parents and the directors of a soft-drink campaign. Radu Jude's film drolly charts the efforts of a country to shrug off the drab duds of communism, only to find that the bright colours of capitalism are really no deliverance.
