"Italian for Beginners" ("Italiensk for begyndere"). One of the first commercially succesful movies from the director Lone Scherfig whom you might recognize as the woman who created "An Education" and "One Day". But this movie is in danish, nonetheless is it super charming, funny and feel-good in the purest sense of the word. And the numbers speak for themselves; the movie is one of the most watched movies of all time in danish movie history. Go join the club!

"In a better World" ("Hævnen"). This movie by danish director Susanne Bier is simply brilliant. It's a tale of revenge and strenght, of having the courage to make the right decisions and be the bigger person. The movie won an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film of the Year 2011. Trust me, it's see-worthy. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
"Amour". Where to begin? Honestly, this movie made me depressed and sad for days after I left the cinema. It's a cold, lonely, and frightening world you find yourself in when watching this film. And there's no way out but death - there, I said it. But in the dark, the love between people can shine like a small candle in a forest at night; it will never light up the darkness, but it will guide you through. At least, that's what you have to tell yourself in order to keep on living. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
"One Day". Thought I'd break in my little blog by writing about a true heartbreaker of a movie. This movie has everything you could hope for in a romantic drama. It is beautiful, original and authentic, and it has broken my heart a little bit. So, as I said, a perfect love story. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
