Tonni is out of jail again, and the world he is returning to is not friendly. Family, friends and girlfriend are still the same. Not to be trusted!
Movies that describe and draws a picture of the bottom of the society is a rare existence. Especially if they do it without glamorizing the sad existences that lives there. This is what Pusher 2 does. It shows us the unfairness and hopeless brutality that rules in these parts of society without hiding the reality behind a sympathetic main character (as we see in many movies). Nothing i hidden. Sex, drugs and violence. Its all filmed with a handhold camera that is so intense that you almost feel like you are a part of the scenes. It is like seeing society through a mirror. These kinds of movies are more important than we often realize especially in a time with too many political correct Hollywood productions and too many meaningless comedies. If you liked the first one in the pusher trilogy this movie definitely is a must see! A must see if you like movies. You will not leave the theater smiling but you will definitely be impressed.
