Austin Chronicle

By Marc Savlov
Terribly Happy isn't, but it is wonderfully unhinged, and a painstakingly constructed meditation on a place where good and evil meet, mate, and make sour times sublime and, dare I say it, beautiful.

By Ray Bennett
The film gets seriously weird as it goes along, but without losing its sense of direction or taste for offbeat humor.

By V.A. Musetto
The actors are charmingly low-key, and the lensing, by Jorgen Johansson, adds to the offbeat aura. Whatever you do, don't miss the booze-guzzling showdown.

I've only been to Denmark twice and have no idea if this is even remotely a Danish situation, but it could fit right fine in the Old West.

New York Daily News

By Elizabeth Weitzman
Such dark doings won't be for everyone, but fans of similarly dry Nordic fare -- like the works of Aki Kaurismaki -- will be happy to have found it.

The characters are intended to be slightly stupid, but the writing isn’t necessarily smarter.
