Best new Norwegian Movies (2017) - Top Netflix & Cinema

Norway’s film industry might not be as internationally celebrated as Sweden’s and Denmark’s, but is just as interesting and flourishing. These are our favorite recent Norwegian movies.
The Vore's Film staff selects the top best Norwegian movies of 2018 in cinema, DVD and Netflix. Are Bent Hamer, Eskil Vogt & Joachim Trier Norway's biggest directors?

Perhaps a small film industry, but rich as hell (oil etc.). And where there is money, there is usually leeway for making innovative and creative films. Norway produces over 30 features a year, and the recent best Norwegian films are essential must-watch films by any standard. Norway does suffer slightly from being mainly associated with Norwegian horror films and zombie films like Death Snow (2009) and Troll Hunter (2010), and with bigger budget drama films like Max Manus (2008), Headhunters (2011) and King of Devil’s Island (2011). But it are their independent films, art house films if you like, that stand out among European cinema. Reprise (2006) for example, represents the best of what Scandinavian cinema has to offer – stylish, clever, insightful and moving (not too mention a great soundtrack). Together with films like Kitchen Stories (2003) (displaying Norwegian dry humor), Norway has been a huge contribution to the Scandinavian cinema of the 00’s.
