Ponyo (dubbed in English) was a surreal, beautifully animated kids story of magic, oceans, and growing up. Watched with my 5-year-old, who loved it.
Stan: The Bridge
I’ve watched two seasons of Bron/Broen, a 10-episodes-per-season Danish/Swedish police procedural where the overall story runs for the whole season, and the crimes take place on a spectacular scale. It’s a story (in the European style) of murder and betrayal, complex relationships and some fascinating characters. The subtitles were working so well that I started to believe I could understand Swedish and Danish.
