It is absolutely funny, sometimes makes you laugh out loud, sometimes simply makes you shake your head delightedly. It is different from any other movie I have seen so far and has been one of my favourite movies of the last 5 years at least. If you need comparisons: The one with the Coen Brothers is probably one of the best. One particular movie that came to my mind while watching "TH" was "Very bad things" - maybe that helps...
Terribly happy has a great story, told in a rather slow tempo, the main characters are very well developed - but whenever you think you know them, there'll be something happening, that makes the whole thing turn into another direction. Very psychological, strange, sometimes irritating, on the other hand beautifully photographed, always surprising, simply lovable and most of all damn funny - that's what "Terribly happy" is!!!
(sorry for my english - this was my first movie review ever...)
Viggo Mortensen, Mads Mikkelsen, Connie Nielsen, and film director Nicolas Winding Refn. Terribly Happy is a film about a cop who suffers mental breakdown in his home town of Copenhagen and consequently is transferred to a small village, where there are more cows than people. The tiny town holds its own dark secrets...and its citizens have their own way of executing justice. Long story short, the new deputy of the village gets unintentionally mixed up in private affairs of some of the villagers, after which the story unfolds like in a twilight-zone...
For the fans of strong European cinema...and dark comedies.
There's plenty of muddy boot action, not a lot of gun action, some people do die though. It's a dark film worth watching that has a few light moments. If you don't mind reading a good movie this isn't a bad choice.
Hansen, 30, lonely, unsure of himself, is not welcome. He's ignored and made fun of. The town bully, Jorgen Buhl (Kim Bodnia), gets far more respect than he does. When Hansen meets Jorgen's wife, Ingerlise (Lene Maria Christensen), he learns she is regularly beaten. But Jorgen says his wife does it to herself. And there's their creepy little girl who wanders around town pushing a baby carriage. Before too long Hansen has become too close to Ingerlise. Then there's a death. Hansen soon learns Jorgen doesn't care for him at all.
Terribly Happy is a tight, dangerous film with a good deal of wicked black humor. If you enjoy the Coen's sense of justice and humor, you'll enjoy this well-made movie.
The abusive husband eventually figures out that Robert killed his wife, and seeks revenge. Robert then shoots and kills the husband. Neighboring police investigate, and whitewash Robert's involvement. Thinking he's off the hook Robert prepares to leave, only to be confronted by three townspeople (including Dr. Quack) who reveal that they know the entire story, and will leak details unless he stays. Their motivation - to ensure a fourth player at their nightly card games.

Caught. Watch out what you wish for.
It's an amazing tale and the photography is superb and mirrors the claustrophobia of life at the edges of existence in Scandinavia. Read more
I usually like movies from Denmark, but this was a terrible disappointment. When I think of this movie symbolically, there are redeeming qualities, but otherwise not.Published on May 19, 2014 by Barbara J London
A little on the bizarre side. The whole thing was depressing, from the weather to the weird people in the town.Published on January 24, 2014 by Janet
Wow! I think this is another proof that good cinema isn't about big budget or famous stars or extraordinary settings. Read morePublished on November 4, 2012 by Daniel Gamboa
