    "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! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

      Italian for Beginners (2000) A belligerent restaurant manager, a repressed hotelier, a lonely hairdresser, and a clumsy, childlike bakery clerk are among the lonely thirtysomethings who escape the social disasters and comic chaos of their unfulfilled lives in an Italian-language evening course. It becomes a place to dream and to heal emotional wounds (and they have more than their fair share of scars) #dogma

      another Danish movie that I love

    "An Education". ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

    "Flammen & Citronen". ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

    "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. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

    "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. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

    "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. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

    "Praque" ("Prag"). Very... Bland. ♥ ♥

    "After the Wedding" ("Efter Brylluppet"). Also a movie from the hands of director Susanne Bier, this is a small masterpiece too. Complicated family affairs are twisted and turned into an unpredictable story, and danish actor Mads Mikkelsen is certainly doing a great job as the movie's main character. "After the Wedding" was also an Academy Award nominee at the Academy Awards of 2007. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
