Storyline

Santiago and Eugenio are more than friends, they are life long business partners. They understand each other without words, they care for each other, they need each other. One day Eugenio disappears without leaving any clues behind. Santiago immediately notices his absence, but only realizes what have happened when Eugenio's wife, Laura, lost and hopeless assures him that Eugenio has left. Santiago and Laura begin a journey in order to find him and end up discovering that they prefer to stay together in this quest rather than finding out where he is. 'The Mystery of Happiness' is a film about love, but goes beyond it, it pushes boundaries, it explores the idea of loyalty and estrangement, and it definitely puts dreams over long lost promises.

Nice one from Argentina
10 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this comedy on cable today, and was very pleasantly surprised at how good it was, as I had never heard of it.

The story is fairly simple, but like many films of course, the actors and the director carry it along well.

I am surprised at the lower rating it has received on IMDb though. Maybe it is because the principal actors are older? I don't know, but this film will keep your attention the entire time.

The themes are basically romance and friendship in very basic ways, so to speak, so the viewer cannot help but identify with the characters. The lead actor, Guillermo Francella, does a very good job in his role as the abandoned best friend/business partner. I saw him in a previous film a while back, "Rudo y Cursi"(México) and he basically stole the show in that one. Anyway, this film from Argentina is definitely very good,and highly recommended
