Nicolas Winding Refn’s debut about the drug dealer Frank (Kim Bodnia) was a sensational success that spawned two sequels. Starring Mads Mikkelsen in his first role.

Frank (Bodnia) and his buddy Tonny (Mikkelsen) are rather small-time drug dealers in Copenhagen. When they’re not selling, they hang out on the streets or in bars. Frank has a loose relationship with Vic, a champagne girl, as she calls herself. After a botched deal that almost gets him arrested, Frank finds himself owing a large debt to a drug lord and must fear for his life. - At the beginning of his creative career, Nicolas Winding Refn was committed to a realistic style. Camerawork, rapid-editing sequences and slightly grainy images combine to create an effect of great immediacy.


Nicolas Winding Refn is one of the defining filmmakers of our time. After the sensational success of the 'Pusher' trilogy and the arthouse hits 'Bronson' and 'Valhalla Rising', he won the directing prize in Cannes with 'Drive' and was subsequently nominated for the Palme d'Or with 'Only God Forgives' and 'The Neon Demon'. Most recently, he made a splash with the Netflix series 'Copenhagen Cowboy'.
