“I’m disgusting,” declares Augustin (Robin L’Houmeau) near the beginning of Alexandre Franchi’s Happy Face. This quiet nineteen-year-old man in a hoody, his face wrapped in bandages and obviously distorted, is attending a support group for people with facial disfigurements, where a sense of insidiously internalised inferiority is not uncommon. In her opening speech, the group’s
