Happy, Happy (Norwegian: Sykt lykkelig) is a 2010 Norwegian comedy film directed by Anne Sewitsky. The film was selected as the Norwegian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 84th Academy Awards,[1][2] but it did not make the final shortlist.[3]


The film tells the tale of two supposedly contented couples, where in truth, there are dark secrets of homosexuality and previous affairs. Kaja (the 'Happy Happy') has gone on her housewife affairs unbeknownst her loveless husband is gay. On the other hand, the couple that comes to visit in the guest house is apparently so happy happy as well, but the reality is there is no joint interest.

Matters take a turn for the worse or better when Sigve buys a 'Couples Board Game' and truths as to Eirik's lack of knowledge for his wife's intimacy coupled with a tension between Elisabeth and her husband are revealed. Kaja begins a passionate affair with Sigve, and Eirik likewise comes on to Sigve; however the passion in this case is not returned.
