Movies: Best Movies in Croatian(Hrvatski jezik)

Croatian (hrvatski [xř̩ʋaːtskiː]) is the standardised variety of the Serbo-Croatian pluricentric language mainly used by Croats. It is the national official language and literary standard of Croatia, one of the official languages of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, the Serbian province of Vojvodina, the European Union and a recognized minority language elsewhere in Serbia and other neighbouring countries.

Croatian is written in Gaj's Latin alphabet. Besides the Shtokavian dialect, on which Standard Croatian is based, there are two other main supradialects spoken on the territory of Croatia, Chakavian and Kajkavian.

Croatian is spoken in Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Italy, Serbia, Croatia, Austria, Romania, Hungary and Montenegro and 638 movies (between 1910 and 2024) with this language have been recorded so far. Most of these movies were shot in Croatia (588). Popular genres for Croatian movies are Drama (299), Documentary (160) and Comedy (98). Murina (2022), Sixth Bus (2022), Dancing on the Grave (2022), Jerusalem Syndrome (2004) and Vector (2010) are among the best known & most successful Croatian movies.
