B-HAPPY

Gonzalo Justiniano
Chile, ESP, Venezuela 2003
90min

Naïveté is swallowed whole in B-Happy, a title that contrasts with the degradations that befall and nearly consume the heroine of this melodrama by Gonzalo Justiniano. Kathy has a tough life; her single mother works and has to keep her and her surly older brother in line, and also decide if the childrens father, who is in prison, should be allowed back into their lives. Despite having a cast of teenage boys who look old enough to be Kathys teachers, Mr. Justiniano shows a remarkable amount of trust in keeping the story sparse. He is rewarded with a stoically stealthy performance by his lead.
(Elvis Mitchell)
