Triangles of Happiness – Review
How far would you go to keep a secret? Would you be willing to shed your beliefs and morals and opt for the easy way out? Welcome to the world of Hanne & Carsten. To any outsider it would seem like theirs is a merry family who have everything in life a person could ask for and that they are content with whatever they have been blessed with. Their life in suburbia is of an ordinary family: a husband-wife and their son. Little do their neighbours know that Hanne and Carsten are desperately trying to hide a secret that might shame them if it ever got out?
Hanne & Carsten are face to face with financial woes and to rectify the same they decided to sell whatever they own. Soon they start running out of personal belongings; they must figure out a solution to be able to cope with their troubles and at the same time not let their nosy neighbours gain any knowledge of what is actually happening.
Director Janik Dahl Pedersen has chosen a very realistic story and presented it incorporating just a tad of humor. Janik has created two characters that one might encounter in day-to-day life. Iben Dorner plays Hanne, a regular housewife who meticulously maintains the mock décor of her house. She is someone who’s smart enough to take control of the worst of situations. Thomas Magnussen plays Hanne’s onscreen husband: the ideal family man who provides for his family and stands beside them in times of utmost crises. Both Thomas and Iben share superb chemistry; their acting adds flavor to the story.
