Literally translated as 'insanely happy', Norway's official entry for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar is a hilarious cautionary tale about adults behaving badly. Housewife Kaja remains unfailingly optimistic despite domestic boredom and a husband who won't have sex with her.

  • Highly recommended even if the scenario is a little implausible. On the other hand, the world is a messed-up, yet beautiful and intriguing place - much like the setting of this film in many respects. And we all grow-up, and all look back upon the mistakes we have made. To my sensitivities, this film has a well -chosen and very well -acted cast and script which is easy to relate to. On the whole, I enjoyed it very much. P.S. I'd rather be in Scandinavia than good 'old Brisbane I gotta say "maate".

  • Sorry, did not click for me. Did not watch it all.

  • A small movie with a surprising storyline and very good actors. The soundtrack was great as well.
