Happy Few, the second feature by French director Antony Cordier, is another movie that In Competition for The Golden Lion at this year’s Venice International Film Festival.
The movie explores the motivating forces behind an adult love affair in which two couples meet and fall in love, lose sight of each other in the confusion and end up pulling through.
Happy Few is a movie that poses the old chestnut about whether or not it’s possible to love two people at once.
It follows “…two couples who meet, hit it off and soon they swap partners in an ongoing spouse-sharing arrangement – without establishing any ground rules.
What starts off as a lot of fun, inevitably leads to jealousy, insecurity and heartbreak. They try to move forward together, without rules and without lies. But very quickly, their lives are full of confusion. And they will do whatever it takes to escape.”
Director Antony Cordier co-wrote the script together with Julie Peyr, and movie stars Marina Fois, Elodie Bouchez, Roschdy Zem and Nicolas Duvauchelle.
Happy Few will be released to French theaters on September 15, 2010 but no wider distribution deal secured just yet.
