Movie week, day 2: Terribly Happy

[ 4/5 | IMDB | Rotten Tomatoes ]

Danish noir. Feels like Fargo or Blood Simple (or that Australian movie The Square we watched a few months back at the Atlanta Film Festival). Disgraced cop gets relocated from the big city--Copenhagen--to a small town that immediately begins testing his sanity. Very well done! Nicely constructed and it keeps you on your toes. The director has quite a few flicks under his belt, so it might be worth checking out his other works.
