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.

Nikolaj Lie Kaas,
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.
