Later at night I went back to the Egyptian to see a dark comedy from Denmark called Terribly Happy. I have mentioned in earlier posts about how I'm on a Danish kick and just really love their sense of humor and will add this quirky film to the list. It's full of lots of dry, deadpan moments that seem to populate their comedic style as a Copenhagen cop moves out to the boonies and discovers a town populated with eccentrics and their own way of doing things. If you go against the grain here--you run the risk of ending up in the bog outside of town. I think I'm going to like any film that makes repeated references to "the bog". I just love that word: bog. I did have to ask a couple in front of me who were blabbing away non-stop (a rarity here as usually audiences are stone silent) if they were going to keep talking to each other the entire film (only my second confrontation of the year Guy if you are reading this, ha).
Day two--both films were worth seeing and enjoyable. Day three has another Danish film scheduled and a new one I'm watching because Jeff Daniels is in it and that's usually reason enough to check it out.
