Typo: German (should be Germany)

In the question, "or plan to visit" is better (instead of planning)

Hello, Silitonga.
When somebody answeres to a comment or to replies, the earlier text can't be edited. So when no one answered, you can edit till then. I'm just a user, but I noticed that. When someone answered, I couldn't edit the prior text. That makes sense. So no one can change the answered text and say "I didn't write that.", afterwards.

It makes me unhappy that Denmark is no longer the happiest country.

I've already visited: Netherlands, Sweden, Austria, Germany, Belgium, Czech Republic, France.

Next in my list is Iceland. But if I have to choose to live, it would be Prague, Czech or Amsterdam.

I would like to visit Austria again. But only for a vacation. I love the food, they have. But I wouldn't want to live there. ;)

Depending on which of the questions I answer, I would choose different countries. For example, I would like to visit New Zealand and Canada, but I don't think I'd want to live there.

They are both good questions, but perhaps it's better to just ask one of them?

I think you're right. 
I read an article that despite their reputation as "best" countries, the top 10 happiest countries, none of them are in a list of top visited country. 
So, I'll change the question to country do you want to live in, thanks

Yeah, it's some kind of bug that prevents edits of lists. Dan has reported the problem: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/unable-to-edit-list-due-to-script-error

Hallo, Silitonga.

I think, the movies as iconic allegoryof the country should should match with the spirit of the poll. They should be reflecting the wish to be there. I have seen "Amour" from Michael Haneke. I just can't think of what's the positive reflection to live there, when i think of that movie. I think, i would take "Amadeus" instead, because it's hard for me to remember happy austrian movies. I guess it's a little difficult to find happy movies from or about Austria. I've not seen many. But maybe I didn't understand your intention right.

I just found an austrian movie, that's happy and i saw it. "Im weissen Rössl - Wehe Du singst" . It's a german produced movie, filmed in austria portaying a well known Hotel in Austria. The old movies with Peter Alexander or Hans Moser are happy, too. In mostly all of them they sing a lot.

Every films in the list are each country submission for Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, some of them won, nominated and some countries in the list never been got nominated for the category. 

Because the film was officially submission from the country, I think its a valid point to be representation for the country, outside of the movie genre or situation like happy film or not.

New Zealand, although there are several that I've visited and loved and others I would love to visit and even live. I'd say one of the Scandinavian countries but not during the winters, although where I live now is just as cold as some of the areas there - nonetheless, I'd like to be somewhere warmer. 

May I suggest one edit? ('below in bold)

You can still make the edit rubyfruit suggested and ask for a re-push.

Nice to see Finland in fourth place.

It would be interesting to know how many people actually live in the countries they voted for.
