THE HAPPIEST GIRL IN THE WORLD (Cea mai fericita fata din lume)
Romania / 2009 / 90 mins / Romanian with English subtitles
Directed by Radu Jude. Cast: Andreea Bosneag, Violeta Popa, Vasile Muraru.

The latest find from Romania: an acerbic comedy about a young girl who wins a soft-drinks competition and finds that success comes with a catch.

You could call Radu Jude’s ‘The Happiest Girl in the World’ the latest Romanian film-about-nothing (or about one small thing extended to breaking point). The title may suggest one-joke irony, but Jude – who worked as assistant director on Cristi Puiu’s ‘Death of Mr Lazarescu’ – scores by following the premise of this bitter comedy to genuinely excruciating lengths. Delia (Andreea Bosneag) is a small-town girl who has won a car in a soft-drinks competition; as part of her reward, she is doomed to spend a day in Bucharest shooting a commercial through clenched teeth, while her parents (Violeta Popa, Vasile Muraru) lay on the moral blackmail. Delia gamely speaks her lines, over and over again, but what looks like becoming a protracted gag about the capitalist dream gradually evolves into a resonant tragicomedy, its insight all the more trenchant for being executed with such casual economy. Long takes and a no-nonsense realist aesthetic perfectly capture the oppressive feeling of a day badly spent in a crowded city. […] One of the wittier and more honest films of the year. (Jonathan Romney)
