De gelukkige huisvrouw Feature film, 2010, 100 min.

The adaptation of Heleen van Royen's semi-autobiographical bestseller preserves the mix of drama, irony and a dash of sex. The young couple Lea and Harry have everything their heart desires: a nice job, social status, a chic house and an unextinguished desire. A baby would make their happiness complete, Harry feels. Lea hesitates, but is persuaded. The proverbial pink cloud, however, fails to materialise. After a disastrous delivery - worth ten minutes of pure horror cinema - Lea suffers a gestational psychosis, complete with a hidden message and an attempted murder of the newborn sprig. This leads to forced admission to a hospital, where she does not exactly burst with enthusiasm to follow (group) therapy. A character that suffers from rapid mood swings is the ideal sample sheet for Carice van Houten's talent. Seemingly effortlessly, she combines paranoia, brazen humour, drama and comedy. This also applies to Antoinette Beumer, who after years of TV experience and the documentary See You in Vegas makes her feature film debut here.
