Well lets start with comedy movies you have to watch a couple of movies from the director Anders Thomas Jensen. Movies such as Flickering Lights.
Flickering Lights (Blinkende Lygter)
- Four small-time gangsters from Copenhagen trick a gangster boss: they take over 4,000,000 kroner which they were supposed to bring him. Trying to escape to Barcelona they are forced to stop in the countryside, in an old, wrecked house, hiding there for several weeks. Slowly, one after another, they realize, that they would like to stay there, starting a new life, renovating the house and forming it into a restaurant. But they can’t avoid being caught up by their past.
The Green Butchers (De Grønne Slagter)
- 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. After dismal beginnings, an unfortunate accident happens which coincides with a large order of meat. One hasty decision leads to another and soon the business thrives. In the meantime, Bjarne has to deal with his twin brother who has been in coma for years following a gruesome car accident.
Adam’s Apples (Adams Æbler)
- A neo-nazi sentenced to community service at a church clashes with the blindly devotional priest.
all three film stars Mads Mikkelsen and you soon see a hole different side of him as an actor, all films are filled with Dark humor and lot of depth and imagery. The newer stuff is more or less a danish ripoff of American blockbusters, but trying to be more outrageous. Simply put they suck. Though if you havn’t watched it then ‘Klovn the Movie’.
Klovn the movie
- In order to prove his fatherhood potential to his pregnant girlfriend, Frank ‘kidnaps’ her 12-year-old nephew and tags along on his best friend Casper’s debauched weekend canoe trip.
Then we can get to the dramas, i’m pretty sure you have watched ‘The Hunt’?. So let’s skip that and go into an older movie from Thomas Vinterbeg called ‘The Celebration’ (Festen)
- At Helge’s 60th birthday party, some unpleasant family truths are revealed.
Not go to much into this, because they mean a lot for the film.
Brothers (Brødre) by Susanne Bier.
- Two brothers must negotiate changing roles and shifting family dynamics when one is sent to war in Afghanistan.
A Royal Affair (En kongelig affære)
- A young queen, who is married to an insane king, falls secretly in love with her physician - and together they start a revolution that changes a nation forever.
Flame and Citron (Flammen og Citronen)
- A drama centered on two fighters in the Holger Danske World War II resistance group.
Then we get to the Action / Crime movies
- A drug pusher grows increasingly desperate after a botched deal leaves him with a large debt to a ruthless drug lord.
- Tony is released from prison - again. This time he has his mind set on changing his broken down life, but that is easier said than done.
Both Pusher movies stars Mads Mikkelsen.
There is one horror recommendation, The Night watch staring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (The King Slayer)
The Night Watch (Nattevagten)
- In order to finance his law studies, Martin starts as a night watchman in a mortuary. When the victims of a serial killer of prostitutes are deposited there, scary things begin to happen. Therefore and because of a strange bet with his fellow student Jens, the police begins to think he is the murderer. Police detective Wormer wants to help him but Martin is more and more suspected.
There is a lot of crap from more recent times, i would stay clear of ‘Blå Mænd’ and ‘Alle for en’ and ‘Alle for to’. That is the cheap Hollywood knockoff i talked about earlier on.
There there is a couple of tv-shows like Klovn, which Klovn the movie is based on. It’s about Frank Hvam, a comedian who plays himself and his socially awkward misadventures.
Then here is a crime show called ‘The Protectors’, where Agent 47 aka “David Bateson” plays a C.I.A agent. No idea if it’s good, i just knows that’s in there. David got a lot of Cameos in shows, like Klovn and other comedy shows.
