A sordid tale of male prostitution and betrayal
29 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

This is the somewhat gritty and arresting tale of Nick, a 13 year-old runaway who misses out on several opportunities to have a better life. He falls in with a gang of thieves and hustlers led by René, a girl posing as a boy (played by Danish singing star Dicte). The viewer sees not only the sordid world of male prostitution and anonymous gay sex but also the betrayal of trust that Nick suffers from those to whom he turns for love and help.
