Frank (Kim Bodnia) is a small-time drug pusher playing with the big boys. He loves the job, the life, the money. But a deal goes wrong and he has 48 hours to come up with the cash. He's a hunted man and a dead one if he doesn't come up with a solution - fast. 'Pusher' is a simple, powerful story told with considerable stylistic energy and visual flair by Nicolas Winding Refn. He makes Copenhagen's bars, brothels and shabby hotels come alive with colourful and scary vitality. It is an uncompromising, outstanding, verite study of life in the heartless underworld. To deal or not to deal, that is the question.

A rush - Pusher review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

Fantastic low budget Danish film of a local drug pusher forced into difficult circumstances. A mix of Trainspotting, the Corner and the Wire yet with its own unique identity and rapid pace. So good they made a sequel and the director has gone onto even better things.

loved it, more like a documentry about dealing, with some really dodgy characters - Pusher review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

The style of filming gives the impression of a home made documentary, as its all about one guy and his view of what happens throughout the story, but with visual quality of a 'proper' film. Couldn't stop watching it as all the real life twists and turns, highs and lows, with well thought out (real?!) underground characters, made me really want to know what was going to happen to this guy.

Has subtitles but the dialogue isn't too fast, so its not annoying.

There's another 2 films in the series, can't wait to see them too.

Not for me - Pusher review by JD

Spoiler Alert

At the time of typing there were 2 very positive reviews about this film which also forms episode 1 of the trilogy. I do not share the opinions of the other reviewers. A hand held biography of the immoral lives of 2 drug addicts / pushers and how they chat, sell drugs, get drunk and grope women I did not find interesting. There did not seem to be a plot, the scenes were (deliberately I think) squalid and unpleasant and the characters (again I assume deliberately) pathetic and unengaging.
