In this third installment of the Pusher trilogy we follow Milo, the charismatic Serbian (bad) cook slash Copenhagen druglord preparing the food for his daughter's birthday, attending rehab meetings from his drug addiction and -conform Pusher tradition- getting involved in a drug deal that does not quite work out as planned...Written by
A nice last chapter to one of Denmark's best trilogies
Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn (2005)
"Hvem jeg er? F*cking King of Copenhagen!"
This is the final part of Nicolas Winding Refn's "Pusher Trilogy" a movie series about the life of three different persons with a relationship to one another. In the first of three movies Pusher (1996) we follow the drug dealer Frank and his problems when he drops a big deal. In the same movie we meet Frank's friend the bum Tonny and Frank's supplier Milo. In Pusher II (2004) we followed Tonny's life after he comes out of jail, and in Pusher 3 it is Milo's character that is the leading character.
The movie follows one day in Milo's life. He is helping planning his grownup daughter's birthday party and he has a major drug deal going on. But something in the deal goes wrong when Milo is tricked by his "partner". Milo now stands between the men he owes money and the man who owes him money. To solve all his problems Milo has to make some drastic and dramatic decisions and do some gruesome things. This includes among other things involving his old friend Radovan, known from "Pusher".
Pusher 3 is a great finish to Refn's series about the Copenhagen drug world. Zlatko Buric is amazing in his first leading role, as the old drug dealer/supplier Milo. If you liked his role and performance in Pusher, you will love him here! The movie has some very disturbing scenes and the cinematography helps the movie to appear very realistic. This movie shows a scary environment, interesting and frightening characters and contains a disturbing story.
