“ Strange shortfilm about a woman who likes the dark nighttime more than light and day. ” - Sublevel4

Michael Laudrup: A Football Player (1993 Documentary)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.9/10 X  
A stil-life of marvellous Danish footballer Michael Laudrups performance on the Barcelona dreamteam 1989-94. (74 mins.)
Director: Jørgen Leth
“ While Michael Laudrup is undoubtedly a world class football player, this "documentary" is pretty worthless. Leth, the director, decides not to focus on anything else other than the ballet-like moves Laudrup makes and while he truly is a great, 70 minutes of superslow shots of his legs interspersed with a couple of interviews and Spanish people saying how great he is on cue, left me feeling decidedly underwhelmed. Not recommended and only 1.5 stars because it is after all Laudrup. ” - Sublevel4

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.5/10 X  
Two brothers, one cold and ruthless, the other sensitive and reluctant, and their brutal misadventures. (91 mins.)
 
16.
Bleeder (1999)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
Two stories for the price of one: Lenny works in a video shop and tries to get aquainted with the waitress Lea. Leo beats his pregnant wife, Louise, which is a VERY bad idea, as her brother, Louis, is a violent racist. (98 mins.)
“ For a film with such an unappealing name as Bleeder, it is actually a pretty good one. Kim Bodnia plays himself, but does it very well and is quite enjoyable. Most impressive for me is Mads Mikkelsen whose range of characters and types is really starting to make me change my opinion of him from very good, if slightly one-dimensional, to someone who can pull off a wide variety of performances. The director, Winding Refn, is clearly in his element here. In some ways this reminded me of Drive. Having only seen Drive, Pusher & now Bleeder, I am slowly warming to his style. I'll reserve judgment for now, until I have watched some more of his stuff, however he might just be an acquired taste. ” - Sublevel4
 
17.
Election Night (1999 Short Film)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.4/10 X  
On election night we meet Peter, an idealistic young man, who suddenly discovers he has forgotten to vote... (11 mins.)
“ Very good short film about a guy who forgets to vote and realises with 20 minutes until the booths close. ” - Sublevel4
 
18.
Mifune (1999)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
Kresten has moved from his parents farm on a small Danish island to Copenhagen in order to pursue his working career... (98 mins.)
“ Had no expectations and perhaps because of that ended up liking the film. Great performances all-round and an interesting story. ” - Sublevel4
 
19.
The Bench (2000)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
Kaj is an alcoholic living on the money the Danish state is providing him. Him and his friends spend their time drinking beer at a public bench. One day Kaj's life turns upside down when a young lady and her child moves in next to him. (93 mins.)
Director: Per Fly
“ Had no expectations of this film at all. I mean how interesting can a film be of watching a drunk guy on a bench. Well, as it turns out, very interesting. Jesper Christensen delivers an excellent performance as Kaj, a grumpy old man with plenty of demons. When a battered mother and her child show up in his neighbourhood, he is roped in to help and consequently has some tough choices to make. I particularly found the ending to be very good and in character. ” - Sublevel4
 
20.
Beyond (2000)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.5/10 X  
One day while scuba diving off their grandfather's boat, teenage brothers Christian (Robert Hansen) and Ask (Ralf J... (91 mins.)
Director: Åke Sandgren
“ This really is a family film. Although there are some thrilling moments, nothing really scary happens. Probably a PG-12 rating would be about right. Having said that, there is enough going on that even adults can enjoy the film as well, tho the target audience is probably young teens.

I found it to be ok, but nothing spectacular. ” - Sublevel4
 
21.
Flickering Lights (2000)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
Four small-time gangsters from Copenhagen trick a gangster boss: they take over 4,000,000 kroner which they were supposed to bring him... (109 mins.)
“ Recommended by Aaron & Ronan Doyle. A gem of a movie. 4 criminals, tired of doing lots of small jobs, find themselves with a lot of cash after their latest job and decide to go on the run. While not a film that is a "laugh-a-minute", it consistently has enough going on to keep the viewer interested and you genuinely care about the 4 main characters. Highly recommended! ” - Sublevel4
 
22.
Italian for Beginners (2000)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
Several lonely hearts in a semi-provincial suburb of a town in Denmark use a beginner's course in Italian as the platform to meet the romance of their lives. (112 mins.)
Director: Lone Scherfig
“ Great little film about a group of people attending an Italian class for beginners in Denmark. What could have been a piece of fluff in lesser hands turns out to be a simply delightful film. The director knows what she is doing and gets good performances out of everyone. You end up genuinely caring about this odd group of people. ” - Sublevel4
 
23.
Unit 1 (2000 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.2/10 X

24.
Truly Human (2001)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
A modern fable about an invisible man who gets the chance to become a real human being. He has to learn to be brave... (95 mins.)
“ In my efforts to see more danish films, I blindly got 4 films from the library that were danish and this was one of them. There were no expectations, in fact the coverinfo made it look boring. So with some trepidation, I started watching it. The first 5 or so minutes were fairly boring, but then something happened and from that moment on I was hooked. A true gem of a movie, with Nicolai Lie Kaas doing an exceptional job as the lead character. Highly recommended! ” - Sublevel4
 
25.
Old Men in New Cars: In China They Eat Dogs II (2002)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.4/10 X  
A portrait of a famous Danish brainsurgeon, Richard malmros. The son of the surgeon, Danish moviemaker Niels malmros tells the story of his father. (98 mins.)
Director: Nils Malmros
 
27.
The Green Butchers (2003)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
Svend and Bjarne work for a butcher in a small Danish town. Fed up with their boss' arrogance, they decide to start their own butcher shop... (100 mins.)
“ For some reason I really didn't connect with this Danish film. It has its moments, but it seem dis-jolted and largely both uninteresting and unfunny. Really wish I could say differently, but I am unimpressed. That is not to say it is bad, just that it wasn't anywhere as good as I had hoped. ” - Sublevel4
 
28.
Rule No. 1 (2003)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.6/10 X  
When Caroline finds her boyfriend having sex with another woman she is invited to stay at her sister Sarahs place... (87 mins.)
Director: Oliver Ussing
“ Two sisters meet up 4 years after one of them walked out of a kidney operation that would have benefited the other one. The more mousy one (who needed the kidney) finds her boyfriend in a compromising position with another woman and moves in with her sister.

The film centres around two things. Firstly, all men are pigs and not worthy and secondly, the sister-sister relationship. This is a chick-flick, however Susanne Juhasz' portrayal of the mousy sister really makes the film work. Mira Wanting also does a fair job of portraying the sister who craves control in her life.

Not everything works in this film, but the two leads are good enough to keep your attention and in between the male-bashing, there are some good lessons to be learned, for both sexes. ” - Sublevel4
 
29.
King's Game (2004)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.4/10 X  
Three weeks before general elections, the leader of one of the country's largest parties, the Center Party... (107 mins.)
Director: Nikolaj Arcel
“ A great Danish political thriller. Suspenseful enough that it kept me gripped throughout, yet not overly convoluted, which means everyone can follow it, even if you know nothing of (Danish) politics. ” - Sublevel4
 
30.
We Are the Champions (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.3/10 X  
Divorced father without custody Torben, a former pro soccer player, concentrates on his talented son David's juniors poorly performing team... (80 mins.)
Director: Martin Hagbjer
“ Another footballfilm. This is more of a familyfilm than anything else. Lars Bom is good as the main character. Watchable, but not very memorable ” - Sublevel4
 
31.
Adam's Apples (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X  
A neo-nazi sentenced to community service at a church clashes with the blindly devotional priest. (94 mins.)
“ Not what I expected at all. Reckon it is best described as a black comedy. A Neonazi gets released to a church which is also a halfway-house. For the 12 weeks he is there, he has to have a goal or task. So he sarcastically says he will bake a cake. Keeping the appletree and the apples ready for picking and dealing with the minister of the church, not to mention 2 other guys, proves to be quite challenging.

While definitely not laugh-a-minute, the actors are on the top of their game and there are some scenes which are pure gems. Recommended for anyone who is a fan of either Danish films or black comedies. ” - Sublevel4
 
32.
The Big Day (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.3/10 X  
(95 mins.)
Director: Morten Arnfred
“ Another in the pile of Danish films I am slowly watching. This one deals about a wedding planner and her two gay friends trying to start up their wedding-planning business, while also dealing with matters of the heart and falling for someone unplanned.

Saw it primarily because the beautiful and talented Trine Dyrholm is in it, but it turns out she only has limited screen-time. It is a real chick-flick and sags a bit in the middle, but generally has enough going on to keep the interest. ” - Sublevel4
 
33.
Restless Souls (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.6/10 X  
A young couple and their daughter move into an old house hanted by spirits. (93 mins.)
Director: Martin Schmidt
“ Haunted house film. Fairly standard stuff with a few by-the-numbers scares. ” - Sublevel4
 
34.
Murk (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
The psychological thriller "Murk" tells the story of Jacob, who is investigating into the circumstances surrounding his sister's death on her wedding night. (124 mins.)
Director: Jannik Johansen
“ Good psychological drama with the ever-watchable Nikolay Lie Kaas in the lead role. His sister commits suicide for the second time on her wedding night. Later, while searching through her personal effects, he finds a clue that suggests there might be more to what happened than meets the eye. ” - Sublevel4
 
35.
Prague (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
Christoffer and Maja's trip to Prague to bring back Chistoffer's deceased father evolves into the story of a break-up. In the wake of the events that follow, secrets gradually emerge which threaten to destroy their marriage. (92 mins.)
“ Fairly good drama about a couple who, after 14 years of marriage, have hit a rough patch, while they are in Prague to claim the dead body of the husband's estranged father. Mikkelsen and Stengade are good in their roles, however the film's pacing isn't great and there are some needless scenes there just to make the film long enough. A bit more taught editing or lack of sleep-inducing scenes and this could easily be a great film. ” - Sublevel4
 
36.
Life Hits (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.5/10 X  
Christina is living in a suburb to Copenhagen. With her class mates Cecilie, Trine and Pernille, a tight-knit gang of girlfriends... (93 mins.)
“ Strong drama with very good performances about a girl who is ostracised by her friends after telling on them when they steal some stuff. Quite powerful. ” - Sublevel4
 
37.
After the Wedding (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X  
A manager of an orphanage in India is sent to Copenhagen, Denmark, where he discovers a life-altering family secret. (120 mins.)
Director: Susanne Bier
“ Quite simply a beautiful film. ” - Sublevel4
 
38.
When a Man Comes Home (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.6/10 X  
A small provincial town is buzzing with excitement: the town's most illustrious son, a world-famous opera singer... (100 mins.)
“ From the director who brought you "Festen", this is pretty similar but not as good. ” - Sublevel4
 
39.
The Killing (2007 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X  
Police detective Sarah Lund investigates difficult cases with personal and political consequences. (57 mins.)
 
40.
Room 205 (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.5/10 X  
Wanting to start a fresh, Katrine moves from the province into a dormitory in Copenhagen and enrolls at the University... (91 mins.)
“ Decentish horror film, which goes more for getting the mood right than out-and-out bloodshed. ” - Sublevel4
 
41.
Crying for Love (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.7/10 X  
Three girls meet in hospital. Struggling to come to terms with their illnesses and the hand fate has dealt them... (85 mins.)
“ A moving film about 3 women suffering from Cancer and their stories. Each is facing their own unique set of circumstances. Thanks to their shared battle, they get close to each other and learn that they are not alone. Based on the Oscar-nominated short film "Om Natten" (At Night). ” - Sublevel4
 
42.
Journey to Saturn (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.7/10 X  
A danish crew of misfits travel to Saturn in search for natural resources. However, the planet is colonized... (90 mins.)
“ A Danish film best described as a sort of cross between Galaxy Quest & Flash Gordon, but animated, and with Danish humour. Funny and well made, but ultimately not a film you will likely be watching more than once or twice in total. ” - Sublevel4
 
43.
Moving Up (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.1/10 X  
MOVING UP is a tragicomic story about the psychologist Manfred who suffers from strong inferiority complexes... (90 mins.)
“ Good performances by the lead roles don't make up for a dry and boring film about a professor seeking tenure who is being thwarted by his boss and co-worker. ” - Sublevel4
 
44.
...Og det var Danmark (2008 Documentary)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
Story about Danish national football (soccer) team, a traditional minnow until the mid-1980s when they improved dramatically and eventually went on to win the European championship in 1992. (107 mins.)
“ Let me start off by saying I lived in Copenhagen in 1992 and I have never in my life witnessed anything like that summer. it was the first major football tournament I really got into, despite living in Amsterdam in 1988, when Holland won the Euros and being English (England had a very good World Cup in 1990 in Italy).

Now that obviously affects my feelings towards Danish football. I grew up with names like Schmeichel, the Laudrup brothers, Povlsen, Christofte & many more.

That being said, I do believe this documentary is a very good one. It documents Danish football, starting in 1979, when the Danes really started being professional in their approach and hired their first fulltime national manager (German Sepp Piontek), right up to that magical summer of 1992, where Denmark, who had failed to qualify, got called up to the Euros for political reasons because Yugoslavia was at war.

If you like football and a good documentary, I recommend this one strongly, even if you are not Danish. The DVD has English subtitles by the way. ;-) ” - Sublevel4
 
45.
Fear Me Not (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X  
A man signs up for a test trial of a new anti-depressant as a way to change his life. When the trial is called off, he continues taking the medication with violent results. (95 mins.)
“ Excellent study of one man spending too much time on his own and the path that leads him down. Ulrich Thomsen is perfect in the lead role and Paprika Steen is also memorable as his wife. This is not a film where everything is spoonfed or wrapped up in a bow at the end. Instead it is a bit more "real". I only had one moment during the film I thought wasn't done as well as it could have been, but it is only something minor and I don't want to spoil it for anyone else. ” - Sublevel4
 
46.
The Candidate (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
Jonas Bechmann, a defense attorney, is a man of the system. Until the day he himself is accused of murder... (90 mins.)
Director: Kasper Barfoed
“ Good Danish film about a lawyer who wakes up one morning to find the girl he cheated on his fiancée with the night before is dead in his hotel room's bathroom. Kaas is good as he usually is, however I did guess who the bad guy was right at the beginning of the film. Still, it was suspenseful and enough was happening to enjoy the whole film and there were still some twists I didn't see coming. ” - Sublevel4
 
47.
What No One Knows (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
In this political thriller, a young woman is found drowned on a winter night by the sea. The dead woman's brother... (99 mins.)
“ Solid Danish thriller about a guy who gets involved in a possible cover-up. Good performances all-round, most notably from Berthelsen. ” - Sublevel4
 
48.
Flame and Citron (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
A drama centered on two fighters in the Holger Danske World War II resistance group. (130 mins.)
“ A good WW II story based on true events. Two Danish freedom fighters who are executing Danish Nazis, find the waters getting murkier and the truth harder to be certain of, as they step up their executions to include prominent German Nazis in Denmark. A little long and consequently lags a bit in the middle, but a very strong beginning and end. ” - Sublevel4
 
49.
Worlds Apart (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
The daughter of a Jehovah's Witness is forced to choose between religion and love when she falls for someone outside her faith. (116 mins.)
“ Interesting film about a girl who has to choose between her family and religion or her new boyfriend and freedom. Intelligently written with good performances. ” - Sublevel4
 
50.
Oldboys (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.5/10 X  
Now in his fifties, Vagn leads a solitary life and plays football with a group of similarly aged men... (95 mins.)
Director: Nikolaj Steen
“ A charming roadmovie about an old man going to Sweden to play a footballmatch and a young man robbing gasstations. Their paths cross and it changes both of them. ” - Sublevel4
 
51.
Headhunter (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
Martin Vinge, (35), former notorious journalist, now successful headhunter with a complicated personal life... (108 mins.)
Director: Rumle Hammerich
“ Martin is a headhunter who is hired to find a new director for a big Danish shipping company called Seiger (the similarities with Mærsk are there to see). The ailing head of the company doesn't think his son has the right stuff to take over. From there on in there is a power-struggle and the whole thing becomes a sort of political thriller. Although it is fairly well executed and I felt Lars Mikkelsen did a good job in the main role, it still left me with a somewhat unsatisfied feeling at the end. Not that it was bad, just that it didn't really grip me. ” - Sublevel4
 
52.
Hold Me Tight (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.5/10 X  
A film about peer pressure and taking responsibility for one's own life. The story revolves around Sara... (80 mins.)
Director: Kaspar Munk
“ Surprisingly effective film starring 4 teenagers. The 4 teenagers are in school together and a series of occurences leads to a tragic situation. After that, it is all about the consequences involved. Very well acted by everyone, especially the 4 young actors in the lead roles. ” - Sublevel4
 
53.
Truth About Men (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
(91 mins.)
Director: Nikolaj Arcel
“ A guy gets bored with his life, breaks up with his girlfriend of 10 years and quits his job. This leads him down a new path with mixed experiences. The story is a little disjointed and I feel the ending could have been done better, but overall it is a good film and it has some great scenes in it. The best of which come from his "inner dialogue" ” - Sublevel4
 
54.
Everything Will be Fine (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
A writer-director known for becoming obsessed with his own stories, Jacob Falk stumbles upon photographs... (90 mins.)
Director: Christoffer Boe
“ Mystery thriller about a scriptwriter who finds some photos of Danish soldiers torturing people during a war. Builds suspense fairly well, and has a big twist at the end which will almost certainly put some people off it (myself included). Not the kind of film that wraps everything up in a neat bow at the end. That being said, Jens Albinus is good in the lead role. ” - Sublevel4
 
55.
Terribly Happy (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.9/10 X  
A thriller about a Copenhagen cop who moves to a small town after having a nervous breakdown. (99 mins.)
“ Bit of a weird film about a cop from Copenhagen moving to a small town because of some problems. Not what I expected, but quite fun nevertheless. A dark comedy the Danes do so well! ” - Sublevel4
 
56.
The Reunion (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.9/10 X

Director: Niels Nørløv
“ Enjoyed this a lot. Hugely funny comedy about 3 guys going to the 25th reunion of their graduating class. ” - Sublevel4
