Happy Ending: Exploring Filming Locations of the Netflix Movie

Written and helmed by Joosje Duk, Netflix’s ‘Happy Ending’ is a Dutch romantic drama film that follows a close couple Luna and Mink who have been going out with each other for a year now. However, Mink has no clue about the fact that Luna has been faking her orgasms ever since the beginning of their relationship. Since she has kept it a secret for so long, she can’t gather the courage to bring it up now. Luna’s friends suggest she try new things in the bedroom with Mink, which gives her the idea to propose a threesome to him.

After the couple agrees to the same, Luna and Mink meet with climate activist Eve the following evening and watch their seemingly perfect life and relationship turn upside down. Featuring compelling performances from a group of talented actors, including Gaite Jansen, Martijn Lakemeier, Joy Delima, Claire Bender, Sinem Kavus, and Sidar Toksöz, the rom-com film takes place in different locations across the Netherlands, such as the residence of Luna and Mink and nightclubs.
