I very much liked the russian movie "Kukushka"- allthough not exactly scandinavian (..) it gives a nice glipse of whatever you found beautiful in "Ofelas". Anni-Kristiina Juuso is a wonderful actress.
I also very much liked Aki Kaurismäki's film "Mies vailla menneisyyttä" ("the man without a past"). Haven't seen the whole "Finland" triology, though.
Beeing norwegian I often see new scandinavan films at the movies, but "The Kautokeino Rebellion" is the only one springing to mind right now. This silenced part of norwegian history made a great impession. I also have heard from friends that "Den brysomme mannen" ("The Bothersome Man") is very good, so I'm plannning to see that one soon.
And: Do spend some time on Lars von Trier, for instance "Riget" and the absolutely painfull and very moving "Breaking the Waves".
Good luck in finding the nordic spirit, whatever it is..
