Happy Ending - Methods of Coloring Relationships
When morals are ignored and just watched as a movie, I found Happy Ending entertaining. When couples lose the excitement in their relationships and are constantly looking for new things, it can lead them to make decisions that push the boundaries. Involving a third person in the relationship is just one of the boundaries that are pushed.
Luna and Mink are our characters who want to set sail for new excitement on the anniversary of their relationship. While Mink (played by Martijn Lakemeier) thinks the relationship is going smoothly, Luna (played by Gaite Jansen) is frustrated that their relationship is not going as well as it started.
Luna is the more entertaining character, looking for novelty in the relationship and open to radical decisions, while Luna has the maturity to push the boundaries of the moral values most of us have and is willing to risk everything for the sake of fulfillment.
When I consider the movie Happy Ending in terms of all the characters, the beginning, the development and the ending of the story, I find it successful in terms of its approach to a sensitive subject that is awkward to talk about in societies and ready to be judged at any moment.
I refrain from expressing my personal opinion, as the way a couple chooses to reflect their inner worlds in their relationship is only binding on them in terms of its consequences, and I just tell myself that it's just a movie.
It is indeed a movie, but it is a movie that questions morality and makes transgression against societal norms seem like a normal necessity. At the end of the story, there is a kind of recuperation for the side I criticized and they give examples and refer to the fact that couples can solve their problems through talking.
It's a fun movie and quite funny in some scenes, and I think those who consider it a comedy or a romance are right because of the use of erotic scenes in doses. Nevertheless, be careful who you watch the movie with. After all, we are not talking about a production that can be watched with the family and there are no age criteria.
I don't think those who watch the movie can adapt most of the scenes to their own lives. Anyway, I recommend watching the movie because of its entertaining story instead of taking it personally. I wish everyone who will watch it a good time.
