Summary

"J'ai commencé à éprouver un sentiment, je veux dire un vrai, à ce moment-là. En sortant de la voiture, à Wandermines, sous la pluie. On ne parle pas assez de l'influence des lieux sur l'affect. Certaines nostalgies remontent à la surface sans prévenir. Les êtres changent de nature, comme dans les contes. Au milieu de cette confrérie en habits du dimanche, se pressant vers la mairie pour échapper aux gouttes, tenant le bras d'Odile pour l'aider sur le parvis glissant, j'ai éprouvé la catastrophe du sentiment."

Glissant de la mélancolie à l'humour, Yasmina Reza dessine avec Heureux les heureux une constellation moderne de personnages confrontés à l'impasse sentimentale.

Too many

Great to listen, the voices (it is a pity there is nothing else narrated by them) are rather interpretative but there is too much crowded, i.e. the alternation of the first husband and wife at supermarket would have been more focused
