If you’ve not seen this film yet and have an interest in happiness and being happy yourself then please do not hesitate to watch it. It’s a documentary but like the best movies, has plenty of drama and takes you on an emotional rollercoaster.

It will leave you with a more profound sense of what happiness is and how to approach achieving more of it.

It may even leave you with a deeper understanding of what it means to be human and inspire you to re-evaluate your own life purpose.

The film includes interviews with leading “happiness” figures:

  • Daniel Gilbert (Professor of Psychology at Harvard University; “Stumbling on Happiness”)
  • Nic Marks  (Happiness Works)
  • The Dalai Lama
  • Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi ( Professor of Psychology and Management at Claremont Graduate University, “Flow”)

Matthieu Ricard (‘happiest human on the planet’) makes an appearance in a brain scanner no less.

I can’t recommend this movie highly enough.
