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.

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.

In the scene, before Frank leaves Milo's bar, you can see a picture of Zeljko Raznatovic - Arkan on the wall. Arkan was a Serbian criminal and later a paramilitary leader, notable for organizing and leading a paramilitary force in the Yugoslav Wars. During Arkan's reign in racketeering business, wall calendars like this one (depicting himself, his wife or Red Star soccer club) were used to show that dues were payed. Zlatko Buric is originally from Croatia, but depicts a Serb in this movie. See more »

With the police about to spring, the buying, selling and dealing in drugs (cocaine and the like) is an extremely dangerous business. Profits can be enormous...providing of course that the buyers don't lag in their payments and that the dealer is sure of the quality of the drugs he has on offer...it must be the genuine article, not talcum or bicarbonate of soda!
This is the tragic story of Frank, a pusher of drugs (Kim Bodnia) who finds himself in terrible debt due to the fact that the drug money due to him is not forthcoming. Desperate situations require desperate remedies. Much of the film is devoted to Frank's frustrating efforts to get the money. He feels he is trapped in a dangerous situation. He goes on a rampage. Frank has a terrible temper. When angered he is quick to retaliate with his gun. There is much bloodshed in this film, but the drama of the situations holds you and sweeps you along to the next confronting situation.
There is more and more killing as Frank pursues his debtors in his murderous attempt to collect the money owing to him so that he in turn will be able to pay for the drugs he acquired as the middle man.
Be advised that this film is not for the squeamish, but if you like to watch a good drama about a man caught in a series of tragic events, go ahead . Kim Bodnia as that man Frank will hold you spellbound.
