The happiest girl in the world

Radu Jude, Romania, 2009, 100’


Cea mai fericită fată din lume (The happiest girl in the world) (Radu Jude, 2009) 100’

Delia, a young Romanian girl, comes to Bucharest with her parents to collect a prize she has won in a contest organized by a soft-drinks company. The prize is a beautiful new car. All Delia has to do now is appear in front of the camera in a commercial. All goes well until it becomes clear that Delia and her parents have very different ideas about what to do with the new car. Meanwhile, the contest’s sponsor needs a radiant prize-winner with a gleaming smile. A wicked satire and a psychological portrait of a society perverted by its slavery to capitalism and consumerism.

* Radu Jude will present the film and take part in the Q&A after the film.
