Storyline

What is beautiful about adolescence is that it is a time when everything is still possible. The four main characters are each conditioned by their background and environment, but they refuse to accept any predestination and to fight it. Expelled from schools, spurned by lovers, confined by identity these youngsters just keep on running, frustrated and in flames. Lonely hearts, intoxicated by music and alcohol, by the heat of minds and bodies, burn to ashes. Written by Hong Kong Arts Centre

One of the greatests movies about teenagers ever made!
28 September 1998 | by (Puebla, Mexico) – See all my reviews

"Trop de bonheur" shows classic teenager´s sentimental feelings about love, racism, sex and friendship. Much deeper than "Kids". "Trop de bonheur" (Too much happiness) it´s the humanistic side of the young people besides AIDS, and world´s problems. A master piece of Cedric Kahn.
