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.

This movie - like Pusher - has a really unique atmosphere. There is something completely mesmerizing about it. Even though it has little action it is interesting and intense. The main character is a criminal who is struggling with himself and those around him. He wants his crime boss father to love him, to respect him. In order to accomplish this he has to prove himself as a hardworking criminal. As a viewer we want to see if he succeeds as a criminal and earns the respect from his father, or if cuts ties with the criminal environment he has been in for so long.
I gave it 7/10 stars.
