Two stories for the price of one: Lenny works in a video shop and tries to get aquainted with the waitress Lea. Leo beats his pregnant wife, Louise, which is a VERY bad idea, as her brother, Louis, is a violent racist.

A young man who was sentenced to seven years in prison for robbing a post office ends up spending three decades in solitary confinement. During this time, his own personality is supplanted by his alter-ego, Charles Bronson.
Julian, a drug-smuggler thriving in Bangkok's criminal underworld, sees his life get even more complicated when his mother compels him to find and kill whoever is responsible for his brother's recent death.

Kristin Scott Thomas,
Frank is a drug pusher on the roll until he makes a huge deal with dope that he hasn't paid for and he gets busted by the police. He manages to dump the dope in a nearby lake but he owes his supplier a lot of money (not a nice guy to owe money to). Now we follow Frank in his quest to raise money in the underworld of Copenhagen.Written by

When Frank and Tonny are in the drugstore to buy vitamins (just before the drug-deal with the Swede), the cameraman is reflected in a mirror. See more »
I once ejaculated a girl in the face, and she wanted me to piss it off.
Wait a minute, wait a minute. You ejaculated a girl in the face, and she wanted you to piss it off?
Pervert! That's fucking sick!
It is not?
It's fucking sick, man. Who was she?

Grim, tough debut feature from Nicolas Winding Refn (based on his 5 minute short film) tells the story of Frank, a hardnosed drug pusher in Copenhagen, who gets more than he bargained for when a deal goes wrong. His Serbian supplier Milo (Buric, in a standout performance) and henchman Radovan give him one last chance to come up with the money, but as it is nothing goes like planned. Kinetic, realistic and supercharged with sudden bursts of (mostly offscreen) violence and a pounding soundtrack as well as all around knockout performances with Kim Bodnia excellent as Frank. One of the best Danish movies of 1996. ***½ (of ****)
