Trailer for Terribly Happy, which screened at Fantastic Fest 2009.
As soon as the Policeman Robert Hansen (Jakob Cedergren) hits the cobblestone streets, his authority is questioned by nearly everyone. The town's longstanding way of life, which includes frequent use of the outlying bogs to keep its dark secrets, seems to be stuck in a quasi-medieval time. The citizens are openly contemptuous of him, especially Jorgen (Kim Bodnia), a drunken brute who beats his wife. When the wife appeals to Hansen for help, he finds himself trapped in a bog of obligation, fear, guilt and loneliness. After an especially wrenching marital intervention, Hansen faces off with Jorgen in a mano-a-mano that would make a caveman proud. The two pound dozens of beers and whiskey in the town bar in front of a jury of the townspeople to prove which man is "right."
