I would add:

  • "Nattevagten" (1994): The break trough movie for Nikolaj Coster Waldau (Jaime Lannister in Game of Thrones)

  • "Blinkende lygter" (2000) with Mads Mikkelsen.

All of Susanne Bier's movies (see http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0081540/?ref_=nv_sr_1 ) since they capture the special Danish humor very well, but especially:

  • "En chance til" (2014)
  • "Efter brylluppet" (2006)
  • "Den eneste ene" (1999)


Thank you, will add them shortly :) Have you already watched "En Chance Til" ? Really looking forward to that one, but I thought it wasn't out yet ...


I have a recommendation, although it isn't a movie!

Myself and a few friends have had lots of fun watching the TV series "Rejseholdet" (English title: "Unit One"). It is a Danish crime drama series from the early 2000s. Strong, interesting characters and a bit addicting to watch. It is 4 seasons (I'm only on the 2nd) and I think listening to it has really helped me understand some of the Danish pronunciation better. Plus, it is really fun when I understand something! :D (I was going to mention it had Mads Mikkelsen but since it is a Danish production...that seems like it would almost go without saying XD)

I would also like to second "Jagten/The Hunt." Amazing movie.


Where did you find Rejseholdet? Or do you have the DVD? I have been wanting to see it, but all I have found is this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srO8w9ugwck


mange tak Jax :) The TV-shows thread is finally up, & "Unit one" is now added! Sounds interesting by the way, so I'm also adding it to my watchlist ;)


Have it and the other Mads films listed...Been learning from them especially the pronunciations....some are easy, some are kinda hard....


I would also recommend watching A Royal Affair; I have been watching it over the past two nights on Netflix. Netflix seems to have a few Danish languages movies available for streaming right now, including a film about some members of the Danish resistance in World War II called Flame and Citron. If I remember correctly, a few other Mads Mikkelsen films are available on the service, including The Hunt.


I second the suggestion of:

  • Efter brylluppet
  • En kongelige affære

And would like to suggest you these ones as well (esp. the second):


Adding this post to the Danish Collection sticky post! :D


good idea, mange tak! :D
