Since the turn of the Millennium, Scandinavian literature, ranging from the works of Jo Nesbø to Stieg Larsson’s Millenium Trilogy, as well as Scandinavian television, such as The Killing and Borgen, has been released to much critical acclaim in the English-speaking world. Despite this, the cinematic output of the three nations hasn’t attracted as much attention, despite the release of some excellent films since 2000.
The country of Norway, one of the three nations of Scandinavia (the other two being Denmark and Sweden) has been responsible for several of these films, and listed in this article are five productions comparable in quality to their Hollywood counterparts, much like the five German films featured in my previous article ‘5 Contemporary German Films Well Worth Watching, which can be found at http://whatculture.com/film/5-contemporary-german-films-worth-watching.php.
