  • Summary: Emiliano views his life with the eyes of a film director, mixing objective reality with artistic creation. The story he is filming flounders with his daily life, until his world is trapped in the lens of his camera. Confused, always alone and in front of a screen, now a transfigured reality,Emiliano views his life with the eyes of a film director, mixing objective reality with artistic creation. The story he is filming flounders with his daily life, until his world is trapped in the lens of his camera. Confused, always alone and in front of a screen, now a transfigured reality, but at the same time a measurable, controllable and manipulable one, he listens to a song on a loop: one of those songs you sing or repeat as a prayer, forcing you to remember, believe and convince yourself.

    By turns sexy and exasperating, hypnotic and confusing, this Mexican import is an art film for the patient, adventurous and, let's be honest, forgiving.

    I Am Happiness on Earth's script is mostly filler between explicit, intensely choreographed sex acts.

    It’s a pretty trying movie to watch, though it does have some striking images.

    If the film defies conventional form, it does so without the gravitas that conceptual cohesion brings, quickly rendering its experimentation into gratuitous aesthetic masturbation.
