Dir. Daniel Burman | Argentina, 2014 | 99 min | PG
The Mystery of Happiness is from Award-winning director Daniel Burman (Lost Embrace). Santiago and Eugenio are more than friends, they are life long business partners. They understand each other without words, they care for each other and they need each other. One day Eugenio disappears without leaving any clues behind. Santiago immediately notices his absence, but only realises what’s happened when Eugenio’s wife, Laura, lost and hopeless assures him that Eugenio has left on his own accord. Santiago and Laura set out on a journey to find him and end up discovering a whole lot more… A funny and poignant film about midlife crisis, relationships and dreams.
“This is the punch of Burman, you immediately engage with the characters. Everything is functional and organic” – Alta Peli
