The Mystery of Happiness

  • Directed by Daniel Burman
  • Argentina/Brazil/China, 2014, 92 mins.

Often called the Woody Allen of Argentinan cinema, Daniel Burman’s wistful comedy is part buddy movie, part detective story, and part romance. “Life-long business partners Santiago and Eugenio understand each other without words, care for each other, and need each other. When Eugenio vanishes without a clue, Santiago and Eugenio’s wife Laura join forces to solve the mystery of his disappearance. What they discover is neither what they set out to find nor what you would expect, and their shared journey becomes a surprising and lighthearted meditation on friendship, love, and loyalty.”—New York Jewish Film Festival.  In Spanish with English subtitles.
