my happy family movie review
Sundance 2017: "My Happy Family," "The Wound", Welcome to Judgment City: A Look Back at Defending Your Life, The West Wing Returns for an HBO Max Special, Touring Masterworks: Adam Nayman Discusses His New Book on Paul Thomas Anderson. References to infidelity, and a brief, semi-obscured conversation about anal sex. There isn’t a single second that doesn’t ring as achingly true. The selections are beautifully instrumental in echoing the emotional tenor of the film, be it joyous or heartbroken. There's an artistry to the film's execution, especially performance, music, writing, cinematography. Forgot your password? The scenes with Manana’s relatives are masterful presentations of family as an overwhelming experience. Subtitled, mature family drama has cursing, sex. What was the purpose of the very first scene? She has been married for 30 years and lives in a three-bedroom flat in Tbilisi with her husband, parents, two children and her son-in-law.The members of her family represent three generations and are completely different from each other: Manana's husband Soso (55); their daughter Nino (24), who is married and adores her husband Vakho (27); Manana's son Lasha (20); Manana's mother Lamara (72), the pillar of the family who takes care of everybody; and Manana's father Otar (80), who after a long and exhausting life, dreams of death which seems slow in coming. How did it set up its audience for what they were about to see? It’s a credit to the subtlety of Ekvtimishvili and Grob’s screenplay that her decision doesn’t stem from a major brawl. At the age of 52, Manana, wife-daughter-mother, at last confronts the impossibility of her situation: overbearing parent, ineffectual husband, young adult children who have not fully "launched." It has universal appeal, while at the same time, is peculiar to the cultural environment of Georgia. It’s there that she learns one of her students just got divorced, which gets Manana thinking maybe she needs to do the same thing. One such celebration comes when Manana and Soso’s son announces his engagement. Sign up here. Manana (Ia Shugliashvili), a high school teacher, is sandwiched between her parents and her children, with her husband passively along for the ride. The sparseness and patience of My Happy Family are integral to its power, matching the inscrutability of Manana herself. Venue: Sundance Film Festival (World Dramatic Competition) It is currently seeking distribution. It's a solid production all around.
