I love that you have "Efter brylluppet" ... "After the wedding" on there :-)

But where are "Volver" and "Broken embraces?" ;-)

I also really liked Woody Allens "Vicky Cristina Barcelona"...

I was somewhat surprised to see X-men :D - but then, I always liked a good action flick :)

"After The Wedding" was terrific wasn't it? In fact, the Danes have made a number of good films recently :)

Volver I enjoyed, but it didn't quite make the top 50 for me. "Broken Embraces" I have yet to see. My bad.

"Vicky" was only OK in my book. The scenes with Cruz and Bardem were wonderful, but Johansen and what's-her-name were too whiny and annoying IMHO.

As for X-Men, it was handled with quite a bit of srtistry for a comic-based film, plus I've been a fan the characters since the 1960s. I enjoyed it immensely.

Thanks Lizelotte
