Terribly Happy, which opened last Friday, is a grungy, deliciously demonic Danish film-noir about a Copenhagen cop named Robert Hanson (Jakob Cedergren) who is transferred to a shit hole of a small town where he becomes entangled with a wily, battered wife. Director Henrik Ruben Genz sets all the sleazy machinery into motion as Robert gets nightmarishly sucked down the rabbit hole into murder and mayhem. There's a nice, lurid and bleak Jim Thompson sensibility to the film and the lead has a scruffy, anti-hero handsomeness.
