Best Danish Movies

Denmark is one of the most interesting film countries in the world. The amount of Great films that is produced there is mind blowing. For such a small country ( 5 Million People) it has managed to become one of the most relevant film industries of Europe. I would say not only Europe, but also in the rest of the world.

Danish Movie Makers like Lars von Trier en Susanne Bier are proving what they can on an international level.

Not only do they make a lot of excellent films, Denmark is also on top op of their game when it comes to TV Series. And Crime Series in particular. I can recommend watching The Killing and the new Swedish / Danish Production The Bridge. You can find them in the below link.
