This is a list of some of the best movies in my opinion:

I Kina spiser de hunde (eng. In China They Eat Dogs)
Blinkende lygter (eng. Flickering Lights)
Gamle mænd i nye biler (eng. Old Men in New Cars)
De grønne slagtere (eng. The Green Butchers)
Rembrandt (eng. Stealing Rembrandt)
Adams æbler (eng. Adam's apples)
Pusher-serien (eng. The Pusher Series (I, II, III))
Nattevagten (eng. Nightwatch)
Se til venstre, der er en Svensker (eng. Old, New, Borrowed and Blue)

This is a list of some good films I haven't seen. So I actually don't know if they're good, but people says so:

Sprængfarlig bombe (eng. Clash of Egos)
Brødre (eng. Brothers)
Idioterne (eng. The Idiots)
Solkongen (eng. The Sun King)

What about some Danish comedy?

With Dirch Passer you can never go wrong. Danish comedy at perhaps its finest.

Also, I'd recommend the Olsen-banden movies. Except maybe the last one, I was kinda disappointed with that one. It does contain one great line though, however, I'll let you see the movie to find it. :)

I should talk about Faroese cinema, however, there's not really that much of it. I should mention Katrin Ottarsdóttir though, our probably foremost director. Some of her films include 'Atlantic Rhapsody', 'Maðurin, ið slapp at fara' (The man, who was allowed to go) and 'Bye Bye Bluebird'.

Many of the movies I listed was actually comedies. To mention some: Blinkende lygter, De grønne slagtere and Sprængfarlig bombe. - But they're not comedies like the "Rush hour"-movies from Hollywood. The danish comedies are more serious, and the funny-moments are better made, in my opinion.

Denmark have a lot of really great sitcoms as well. Not movies, but series (usually TV-series). My absolutely favorite is Klovn (eng. Clown) It's a brilliant sitcom. It's a must-see, but I think you've to know the danish humour, before you thinks it's fun. Some other sitcoms including: Langt fra Las Vegas (eng. Far (away) from Las Vegas).

Then we also have a lot of satire TV-series. Those are a TV-series, where every show is splitted up in small clips, where each clips have it's own unique action. Different from comedies and sitcoms, this is meant to be fun all the time, and not something that could had been in the real world. Some of the TV-series including: Tak for i aften (eng. Thank you for the evening), Drengene fra Angora (eng. The Boys from Angora (do not confuse with Angola!)), Banjos Likørsture (eng. Banjo's liquor-room), Svinene (eng. The Pigs) and Wulffmorgenthaler (eng. Wulffmorgenthaler)

Then we also have a lot of stand-up, and some of the most famous artists including: Mick Øgendahl, Jan Gintberg, Lars Hjortshøj, Rune Klan and Anders Matthesen (sometimes referred as "Anden" (eng. "The Duck"))

This was an insight in what's going on in Danish movies, and television. Note that this was only the "funny stuff," I haven't been talking about drama, action, etc.

Hey, I think I saw the China eat dogs film in the Videotheque.
Pusher and Adam's Apple are also there, but I don't think I ever saw the rest of them. :(

Those are some great movies!

This is a little list of the best of the best, in my opinion. They're taken from my two last posts:

Comedy - Blinkende lygter (eng. Flickering Lights)
Comedy - Gamle mænd i nye biler (eng. Old Men in New Cars)
Comedy - De grønne slagtere (eng. The Green Butchers)
Comedy - Rembrandt (eng. Stealing Rembrandt)
Comedy - Adams æbler (eng. Adam's apples)
Sitcom - Klovn (eng. Clown)
Satire - Banjos Likørsture (eng. Banjo's liquor-room)
Satire - Svinene (eng. The Pigs)

Mulder-21 mentioned something about comedies too, with Dirch Passer, Olsen-banden (eng. The Olsen-gang), etc. but those are all pretty old movies, though they have some great moments sometimes. Personally, I don't really like them.

Anyways, if some of you wants to see some great modern danish movies, you should really look into my list. If you want to see some older danish, yet pretty good movies, you should look into movies starring Dirch Passer, Poul Reichhardt, Karl Stegger, Ove Sprogøe, Poul Bundgaard and Ghita Nørby.

Happy movie-watching, to those who are interested!

Ego, how are you for older movies? I mean really early. The twenties.
Because, the movie Häxan is brilliant if you don't have a bias against the old old films.
Its a fake documentary style, with some amusing moments and some moments to make you think. The production is pretty good for a movie from that era.

Its Danish but with Swedish production.
