The Danish Film Institute's List of Greatest Danish Films (Through 2000)

This is the DFI's list of their country's best films up through the year 2000. What's especially great here is the focus on the pre-1970s work. There's been a fair amount of lists like this that when they come out, they tend to skew towards more recent years. This is one of my favorites because it showcases a wide range of film genres, and because it revels in its history. Enjoy!
