Happy End is a satirical nightmare of haute-bourgeois European prosperity: as stark, brilliant and unforgiving as a halogen light. … It is also as gripping as a satanically inspired soap opera, a dynasty of lost souls.”

Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

When her mother goes into a coma caused by a drug overdose, twelve year old Eve moves in with her father, his new wife and baby. They share a palatial bourgeois house with her aunt Anne (Isabelle Huppert) and grandfather George. Through a series of bizarre and sometimes surreal episodes the dysfunctional life of this extended family gradually emerges as the film unfolds.
