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.Written by
A partner disappears and his wife and other other partner look for him.
Picked up as a time filler and after seeing the IMDb ratings reluctantly. It is a quiet movie that sort of sneaks up on you. It illustrates that you don't know other people as well as you think you do. Two partners that share a lot start off the action and it is impressive how much they share even subtle details. Nonetheless one partner disappears and the remaining partner is confronted by the wife who sees herself as a replacement. She is astounded at what the first partner know about her husband, but then later we realize her husband had a life away from work unknown to the partner. They both see life differently. The two main actors have just the right touch. You will be rooting for them and may not be too surprised at how the movie closes, but the journey along the way is beautiful.
