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.

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.
