Oh What a Wonderful Feeling is a Canadian short drama film, directed by François Jaros and released in 2016.[1] The film, an experimental drama described by Jaros as one in which he wanted "to have the narrative just outside of the frame; to suggest that there’s a bigger world, a bigger thing and something maybe meaner, more strange happening",[1] largely depicts actions driven by offscreen events and features very little spoken dialogue.[2]
