100 Swedish films you have to see...

...according to the Swedish Film Institute.


Based on a list published by the institute and their subsidiary Cinemateket. EDIT: since a redesign of the institute's website, the original list is no longer available.


"The Swedish film history contains a wealth of important works that have affected both the art of filmmaking and the world at the time. We have under the headline '100 Swedish films you have to see!' given you the chance to see a selection that reflects the whole of our rich film heritage. We highlight the Swedish films that we think you should see; because they were innovative, intensely debated, are forgotten gems - or simply masterpieces." (Translated from Swedish)
