a note to my future self.
a happy event is one of the best french films i’ve seen in recent months. it’s so realistic, sad, funny and heartwarming. it’s the story of two people who meet in a video shop, start dating and fall so in love with each other. and although they aren’t married yet and neither are in comfortable circumstances to have a child, they decide to do so out of ‘madness and love’. the movie follows how the pregnancy and birth of their daughter changes their relationship in ways they didn’t expect. the story is typical but this movie puts such a fresh twist on it. i think most movies that deal with young couples in love with a baby put in the picture, show things to always be perfect without showing the real side of human nature and relationships. this movie does so without making it overly dramatic and instead the drama is in the details that would make us all feel sad, happy, overwhelmed and insecure.
this movie is on netflix instant play and i highly recommend watching it.
“She drove me into a corner, then forced me to go beyond my limits. She made me confront the absolute: love, sacrifice, tenderness, abandonment. She dislocated me, transformed me. Why didn’t anyone warn me? Why doesn’t anyone ever talk about this?”
