The Happy Years

The Happy Years

Based on a collection of stories with the focus on young John Humperkink "Dink" Stover, a student at the Lawrenceville Prepatory School, in 1896, whose family, in Eastcester, New York, have just about given up on his education because he is an incorrigible student. He gets into one situation after another and incurs the dislike of his classmates, who think he is cowardly but he changes their opinion when he challenges several of them to a fight. When he returns home for the summer, he meets Miss Dolly Travers and increases his 'hatred of women' because she does not accept his schoolboy pranks. Back at school, in the fall, he is more difficult than ever until his philosophy is changed by a teacher.

Richard Y (fr) wrote: Nothing more than a Promo Film of Hong Kong Night Life for white visitors and prospective business seekers with a New York expatriate and an L.A. Chinese immigrant as hosts falling for each other. Shallow with a poor music score.

Ian F (it) wrote: The tragedy of Sean Ellis? recent expansion of his 2004 Oscar nominated short film is that it leaves you bored and frustrated but not quite angry enough to demand any monetary restitution. The film opens with slow motion footage of the protagonist?s (Sean Biggerstaff) breakup with his girlfriend. This event sends him into a 4 week period of apathy and insomnia. To pass the time he takes on a job at a supermarket that boasts a handful of quirky characters, where he meets love-interest Sharon (Emilia Fox). Ben, the protagonist, is capable of stopping time a gift which he uses to admire the female clientele as they stand, frozen, in the supermarket aisles. This triggers a whole ten minutes of gratuitous female nudity that seems to serve no purpose other than generating media attention for the film. The laborious love story unfolds against the supermarket backdrop where the residual entertainment value of this film lies. A loose collection of genuinely funny moments produced by the supermarket staff: a wannabe stuntman and his sidekick, a store manager who tries too hard to be David Brent and a practiser of martial arts whose only function in the film is to produce a five second humorous sequence. The novelty of the time freezing ability and various comic interludes, however quickly wears off and a sense of tedium sets in as the film inexorably moves toward the predictably saccharine ending. Fox inevitably witnesses an inadvertent kiss between Biggerstaff and his ex-girlfriend and a brief period of crisis ensues. Equally inevitably the final scene witnesses the reconciliation of Fox and Biggerstaff in a ludicrously clich (C) fashion. Biggerstaff?s dispassionate voice-overs certainly contribute to the boredom and his attempts at appearing apathetic in front of the camera pale in comparison to Zach Braff in Garden State or Simon Pegg in Dawn of the Dead. Frankly, the romantic-comedy genre is better off without this film and its sometimes laughably corny dialogue.

Helen E (mx) wrote: Was an ok film. I don't smoke weed so probably dont fully get it. Was pretty funny though. To be honest I only wanted to watch it for Theo Kogan and Lunachicks which was awesome =) I kinda liked how it was filmed and it was just nice and simple. Acting wasn't the best but I wasn't expecting much. Worth a watch for stoners I guess, lol.
