A case of mistaken identity lands Slevin into the middle of a war being plotted by two of the city's most rival crime bosses: The Rabbi and The Boss. Slevin is under constant surveillance by relentless Detective Brikowski as well as the infamous assassin Goodkat and finds himself having to hatch his own ingenious plot to get them before they get him.
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.

I'm facing a bit of a problem here: what the hell can I possibly say about a film that left me completely speechless? Brilliant "Pusher" is prosaic and extremely realistic movie. It's made to look almost like a documentary. One week in the life of a man who makes his living by pushing drugs isn't basically anything so nice to watch but "Pusher" is just so upbeat, strong, rough and exciting little movie. It's impossible to ignore it just because it's a portrayal of a truly repulsive and violent lifestyle.
Minute by minute the film becomes more and more tense and a viewer starts to wait how dirty can it get and is there any solution ahead or does it all end as it's logical to expect. Well, there's no easy way out. "Pusher" shows that it doesn't matter if you're a drug user or a pusher or even both, it's life and death anyway. Actors make the enjoyment prefect. Excellent and impressive Danish thriller that simply won't leave you cold.
