Countries With the Best Movies

booklover1
These are the countries with the best movies made there.

The Top Ten

1 India India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world.

Movies in India are of various languages and tell of different people. Hats off to he great directors like Satyajit Ray

Every film is good; no other film industry can provide such a diverse variety in theme as well as languages as Indian Film Industry. Their tickets is one of the cheapest, making the lower sections to enjoy it as well

Indian movies has great stories unlike Hollywood which just don't have any story..

India and Indian movies are best in the world. God bless India. Its heaven of earth. Every country has dark side so as well India. But still it's the proudfull county.

2 United States of America United States of America The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.

There is one reason America is not number one and that is because it's number one at a lot of things and other country's get tired of it so people vote for other countries. I've seen it one many lists in here. Look I'm not saying anything bad about other countries movie industries but India! Come on. Look I know they now produce the most movies yearly and I'm sure there's a lot of great ones but they don't have the world wide popularity American movies do. America is one of the few countries who's entertainment like movies, shows, music, sports, and even porn is popular world wide almost everywhere. I'm sorry but India is not on that scale yet they may screen in other countries and make some money but they don't bring in billions demestic and international like the US. Look there are many many MANY examples I could use right now but I'll stick with probably the most world wide known and loved movie in the world. So let me know when India makes a movie even some what close to STAR WARS ...more

Perhaps not from a ratio standpoint - there's certainly a lot of crap that comes out of Hollywood - but as far as "the best" goes no other country even comes close. - dallinatkinson

How the hell is India above America, yeah India makes the most but not the best, America film industry has professional actors and costly films unlike India, this is the last top ten list I will see on here, people seriously hate America, the last list I saw had Canada above America in best music - JC123

IMDb's top 100 films of all time includes 79 that were made in the USA. Which obviously is the most of any country. 2nd is UK with 17. India doesn't even have one. Just wondering how any country comes close. We don't name Hollywood after some Indian region where movies are produced, they named their "Bollywood" after OURS!

3 Germany Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. ...read more.

As a japanese, I love german movies more than this Hollywood rubbish.

I think German movies have better thoughtful stories with characters with more range. The characters in German movies seem to be many sided and not like black and white portraits in American movies.

The best known German films are nosferatu and metropolis. Who knew Germans were so good at filmmaking? These films are definitely worth checking out. Trust me.

Germany is home to Metropolis, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, M, Nosferatu, Wings of Desire, Das Boot these are some of the best films of all time why is this only #6?

4 United Kingdom United Kingdom The United Kingdom (UK) is a sovereign state which consists of the political and economic union of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It was a member of the European Union (EU) from 1973 to 2016. ...read more.

Oh really? Fifth? Where we have some of the most popular franchises in the world? James Bond? Harry Potter? Monty Python? All of various genres and various talents in the making of the films. I would definitely say that we have some of the best of the best of movies. - PositronWildhawk

There isn't really a 'British cinema' to the same extent as a 'French cinema' for instance, because the British film industry is so connected with Hollywood. British actors, directors, cinematographers etc. make films in America and Hollywood makes films in Britain. So although it's harder to make a case for a British national cinema, it's pretty clear that in terms of the level of filmmaking, the expertise of film crews etc. Britain is unrivalled outside Los Angeles

Most of stanley kubrick's films were shot in the United Kingdom so I guess that counts as a point for the country with the best movies.

Needs to be higher have you forgotten the Harry Potter series; which is the top book/movie series ever!

5 France France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to ...read more.

While I think that the US deserves to be at the top of the list, France is a very close second. Cinema was born there with the Lumiere brothers, and every since they have been making great films like the The Rules of the Game, The 400 Blows, and Amelie.

I love French movies so much. I think France makes the best movies. - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

France produces some of the most genuinely artistic films in the world, though I do believe that it should be ranked below the United States.

Well, Damien Chazelle for La la land.. USA and France 1st, followed by UK, Denmark, Belgium...

6 Iran Iran Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia.

I think Iranian movies are better than Indian movies! Indian movies are bluff! Don't believe me watch "a Separation" movie! You'll see the differences!

I can't believe that someone who understand the cinema put Iran in rank 9 far behind India and Canada and Germany

Iran and Italy deserve more: Rank 2 and 3

Whether because of or in spite of censorship and social norms Iranian directors have created more than their fair share of amazing character studies and allegories on meaningful topics. I suspect of there were more films available in the West from Iran we would appreciate that country's work even more.

Iranian Cinema is the worlds most humane, socially hardcore, politically brave and thematically meaningful. Number one!

7 South Korea South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

Should be in top 5. Korea puts a lot of money and resources into supporting its film industry and it shows. World class movies

With the golden age of the 21st century, South Korea has become one of the leading film producing countries in the world.

Two of my favorite South Korean movies are oldboy and I saw the devil.

I love kdramas so it should be at the top

8 Japan Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest. ...read more.

Japanese movies are awesome. They have movies in almost all genres. From crazy to emotional. The movies have proper direction. I liked almost every Japanese movie that I have watched. And believe me, I have watched a lot.

Japanese films seem to allow more freedom and creativeness follows. The character development in their films tends to go deeper.

Their films just feel unique...

As an indain, I praise Japanese movies most. They are the king of movies. Nobody can beat them even us also. Almost 70% of Hollywood movies are made in Japan. Remember that. Hollywood copies most of tthe Japanese movies and make them hit.

Japan should be 2nd

Country with dollars trilogy once upon a time in West cinema paradise bicycle thieves la dolce vita and many more the country of Leone morricone Fellini and many more must be number 2

Leone and Fellini alone. Life is Beautiful and Cinema Paradiso are amazing. Bicycle Thieves is brilliant. - DysenteryGary

The only bad movie to ever come out of Italy is animated version of the titanic where nobody dies at all!

Wonderful country, wonderful culture

Now pakistan make much better movies than india. Pakistan drama serials are decent from india not have much music and short episodes with their topic.Pakistan film industry is making good movies now a days.

Al least Pakistani movie are clean u can sat down and watch them with the whole family

Apart from other film industries and specially from Indian film industry, Pakistan' movies have a lot more to screen than sex! Lollywood is making fantastic social issues related movies that are creating a sense of education and awareness among the people. And specially nothing is better than te comedy of Lollywood films.!

Philippine movie is as cute as South Korean films. I'm Indonesian. I I'm a fan of FIL Movie

Philippines had unique movies because the movie is related to the culture, history and living...

Indie films and romantic comedy films are really commendable! Watch and learn!

Philippine movies have many meanings and deep meanings about love,life,and more. I am half Chinese,Japanese, Spanish and little filipino. But I pride the culture andmovies it has meaning to it not worthless meanings to it.

18 Australia Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

Mad Max Fury Road is one of the greatest, maybe the greatest action movie of all time. Babadook is one of the best modern horror films of all time. The Australian film industry needs more support and money. Most Aussie films are funded by the government. We don't have big film production studios

Australia has made outstanding films such as:
Picnic at Hanging Rock
Crocodile Dundee
Gallipoli
Australia
Wolf Creek
Paper Planes
Kokoda
The Reef
Red Dog

I am Australian and have seen 410 movies yet I haven't seen any of those. - ParasN2000

What Australia is so underrated

The worst of the lot

Danish movies are unique

All Danish movies with Mads Mikkelsen the bet Actor of the World.

The Scandinavian style is so recognisable and passionate!

If you haven't already, go watch the movies "Flickering lights" ("Blinkende Lygter").
It's absolutely hilarious.
