Storyline

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.

Quotes

Radovan: [threatening the junkie] You got any idea how you're gonna raise the money? No?
Radovan: [pulls out a shotgun and gives it to the junkie] I got an idea. You go down to the bank and ask for the money.
Frank: He can't rob a bank!
Radovan: of course he can. Anyone can rob a bank.
Frank: He can't even hold that shotgun! Look at him, for Christ sake!

WoW - One of the best movies I've ever seen!
7 May 1999 | by MudflapSee all my reviews

I just don't know what to say about this film: I just saw it and I feel so ignorant - I don't know who the director is, I don't know who the cast members are, but man-o-man I'm going to find out! What a compelling, gripping story! In this particular case I feel that a few of of us underground movie geeks knowing and loving this film just isn't enough. I feel like I want to run out and tell the world - in brief, I haven't been this excited about a film in a long, long time!
