I'll Make You Happy
Teenage bad girl Siggy has big plans. Motivated by love, greed and anger, she comes up with a plan to hijack her sleazy pimp Lou’s money-making scheme. With an unlikely team including the agorophobic Lester, mild-mannered Drew, dominatrix Fran and sex workers Mickie and Mel, Siggy pulls off a heist involving decoy cops, sexual distractions, misleading code words and narrow escapes.
Written by sisters Anne and Athina Tsoulis, I'll Make You Happy centres around around a stylised version of Auckland's red-light district.
Like many innovative Kiwi films of the 1990's, I'll Make You Happy was made on a shoestring budget, and shot in just over four weeks.
It was the first feature film for Athina Tsoulis as director; Liz Stevens as producer; Rewa Harre as director of photography; and Jodie Rimmer as lead actor.
