A Podcast with Henrik Ruben Genz, the Director of Terribly Happy
Below is an interview with the director of the Danish dark comedy Terribly Happy, Henrik Ruben Genz. We discuss the connections between his film and Blood Simple, the satirical underpinnings of Terribly Happy and how that relates to political refugees in Denmark, the inherent humor within the arrogance of Dogme ’95 and how Lars Von Trier is viewed in his native country, and the unique way that Danish films are financed, among other things. The interview runs just over 35 minutes and some of the audio, especially on Henrik’s end, is not the best, since he was calling me from Denmark on a cell phone, but I’ve done what I can to clean it up and you should have no problem hearing all of it.
