I think it's funny that the two best films, by far, from Denmark - 'Breaking the Waves' and 'Babette's Feast' - are so low here. I'm not sure when this list was last updated, but 'In a Better World' (2010) definitely belongs here, as well.

"Smukke mennesker" should also be on the list.

En Kongelig Affære deserves to be on the top of the list, I think.

Hey what about Kira's Reason:A love Story and Festen. Two of the best regardless of country

Sorry did not see Festan "the Celebration" on my first review. It's right at the top as it should be.

It seems that The Witches (Häxan) is a Swedish film with no Danish involvement, according to IMDB. In fact, Häxan is Swedish; its Danish title is Heksen.

I know that Von Trier is already well represented here, but what about including the films belonging to his Depression Trilogy? Actually, I am thinking of Antichrist and Melancholia: I haven't seen Nymphomaniac yet, since I am waiting for the uncut version which is five hours and a half long... So far I haven't been interested in watching a cut version of it, as it was released.
