Happy Days
22 January 2016 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Nos Jours Heureux is definitely worth to watch. It has a lot of rhythm, authenticity and a lot of good and now very famous actors in France (despite what some of us wrote here). I would even dare to say it will become a cult movie. Several reasons for that: it's a comedy with famous phrases that will stick in your head, it appeals to everyone's childhood and the summer camp we used to attend to, the eccentricity and the authenticity of the characters allow them to have hilarious freak-outs that for sure you will remember. The movie describes perfectly the mood of such places. Anyone that has attended a summer camp like that would recall a camp counselor, a child or a chef De cuisine and for sure one or several of them who would have have been freak, violent, lady killer or simply misplaced and inappropriate. This film sums up it all. The stupid activities, the dishonesty of adults, the freak-outs, kids' tricks, adults' obsession for sex and maybe a subtle analysis of what is in an early-thirty year old adult's mind at a watershed of his history in life. I found that last thing very subtle and very interesting in addition to all the laughters it provided. Enjoy !
