Synopsis
Drug-dealing Danish thugs engage in various criminal activities in violently hip but gritty crime drama. The interesting cinematography provides one of the film's points of interest. But for one scene all exterior shots seemed to be filmed in grainy black and white high contrast film that is then tinted an almost lurid orange. Interior shots are filmed in normal color. Janus has just been released from prison. He immediately teams up with his juvenile delinquent little brother Jakob, steals a car and meets gang leader Lasse at the Café Teuton. Lasse invites Janus to live in his sister Eva's apartment and then gives him his first assignment which is to go down to local housing projects and frighten the sick and elderly into handing over their drug prescriptions so that Lasse will have a good supply to sell. Trouble erupts when Janus and Eva get into a violent relationship. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
