Honest and incisive, a film without a message, just telling it like it is.

It's the comic, touching glimpses into a society run aground that make Something Like Happiness special and link it with the gentle fables of the Czech New Wave films of the 1960s.

Third time's the charm for Czech helmer Bohdan Slama, whose talent for locating the dignity in the downtrodden of his native Czech Republic is on moving display.
