DIRECTOR: Henrik Ruben Genz - DENMARK

A southern Danish village hides as many secrets as the nearby bog in this blackly comic thriller about the universal nature of compromise and corruption. When tightly wound cop Robert is transferred to a small border town where outsiders either adapt or disappear, he finds that the clannish locals scorn by-the-book law enforcement and rely instead on their own unique brand of frontier justice. When another outsider, the alluring Ingelise, tries to enlist Robert’s help in escaping from her abusive husband, the stage seems to be set for a predictable love triangle. Cleverly defying expectations as it knowingly toys with genre conventions, Terribly Happy sustains a unique tone that smoothly incorporates Western, noir, horror, and psychological thriller with creative flair.

Filmography: Someone Like Hodder (03).

Winner of six Danish Bodil (Danish Oscars) and this year’s Danish submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.

Sponsored by West Cafe.
