Terribly Happy

Terribly Happy

Directed by Henrik Ruben Genz

Robert Hanson (Jakob Cedergren) is a Copenhagen police officer who, following a nervous breakdown, is transferred to a small provincial town to take on the mysteriously vacated Marshall position and subsequently gets mixed up with a married femme fatale. Robert’s big city temperament makes it impossible for him to fit in, or understand the uncivilized, bizarre behavior displayed by the townspeople. Quickly spiraling downward into an intense fable reminiscent of the Coen Brothers’ BLOOD SIMPLE and NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, TERRIBLY HAPPY displays a unique, often macabre vision of the darkest depths to which people will go to achieve a sense of security and belonging.

A Copenhagen police officer is transferred to a small town in this taut, noirish thriller.

Cast: Jakob Cedergren, Lene Maria Christensen, Kim Bodnia

I actually live in the village where this was filmed and it is not creepy at all. Quite a few of the buildings used have since been torn down and we’re becoming something of a tourist attraction. The second series of the European thriller noir THE TEAM is also filmed here.

High small town creep factor and I liked the ending. Not sure why, but this one didn't sit as well with me as it maybe should have.
