Product Description

All three films in the Danish crime trilogy. In 'Pusher' (1996), a small-time drug pusher, Frank (Kim Bodnia) is enjoying his life of crime - especially the money and the life-style. However, when a deal he is working on goes wrong he is left with a bit of a problem. The big boys who he has been dealing with are demanding the cash - and he has 48 hours to either get it or find another solution. If he fails to deliver he will certainly be hurt. In the sequel, 'Pusher 2' (2004), Tony (Mads Mikkelsen) is released from prison and is determined to turn his life around, but finds it more difficult than he could have imagined to escape his life of crime and drug dealing. In 'Pusher 3' (2005), Milo (Zlatko Buric), the drug lord from the first two films, is planning for his daughter's 25th birthday and anticipating delivery of a large heroin consignment. But when the heroin turns out to be 10,000 Ecstacy tablets, Milo decides to go ahead with the sale, inadvertantly sparking off a major drugs war. With no other option, Milo is forced to turn to his old henchman Radovan (Slavko Labovic) to tidy up the mess.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pushing the Boundaries.... 24 Jan 2012
By Tim Kidner TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
With the current wave of popularity of decent Danish drama on our TV screens, here's a trio of Danish films that started out fifteen years ago.

Imagine downtown L.A, or New York's sleaziest side streets and you're only halfway to Nicolas Winding Refn's inky black slant on dope dealers and their petty lives down Copenhagen's dark alleys.

We get to know their sweary, calloused lives as the camera sits next to them in stolen BMWs and Volvos and follows them round like a bad smell. Because this seems semi documentary, we almost get to like them but as they mess up, they mess up good.

Each film concentrates on a particular character whilst the core remains roughly the same, so there's continuity, yet freshness. The Dogme style shooting (all "natural" - not much is actual daylight, though) is one up from those grainy, shaky cams that makes one seasick. The camera darts and weaves but is fluid and restful when it needs to be, allowing us to literally stand there in the basement, nightclub, crack-den, brothel, whatever it might be.

You find yourself telling the character on screen what an idiot he's being - you don't necessarily like him but somehow you feel 'involved', almost responsible for his irresponsible life. They're never glamourised but the story always seems real, very possible, yet still, as with anyone stuffing themselves with their own product, it's unpredictable - and yes, at times, downright bloody funny.

I originally saw the first two on Film 4 years ago and so now, with this trilogy have caught up the final one, as well as refreshed myself with the others.

I was a bit surprised that Pusher 2 & 3 shared a disc whilst the original had one to itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pusher Trilogy 12 Jun 2006
Format:DVD
If you haven't heard of, or watched the Pusher movies then you are missing out on the delights of world cinema.

This is great filmmaking, that's not that widely known because of the commercial blockbuster nature of mainstream British cinemas.

This DVD release is the chance to appreciate a relatively over looked classic.

The three films are based around the lives of three Copenhagen pushers and the cycle of violence and despair they live in and around. Each focussing on a different main character, out of the same world.

If you liked La Haine or City of God, or the best of the Dogma movies, this trilogy will deliver. Intelligent filmaking, raw and real, without glamour or sentinmentality.

Makes 'Lock, Stock...' look like Noddy..

5.0 out of 5 stars superb 21 Aug 2008
By godzilla78 VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A terrific trilogy which centres around those connected to the copenhagen underworld. Each film has characters who overlap into the others but no prior knowledge is needed to enjoy this amazing series of films. My personal favourite is the second instalment which has a really strong performance from Mads Mikkelsen who struggles to cope with his newfound responsibilities as a father. I found the first film to be the weakest as it's hard to sympathize with the lead character (Frank) who tends to use his girlfriend in any way he can. The final chapter provides the most humour (most of it very dark at times) as Milo struggles to hold on to his position as top dog in the criminal empire. Without a doubt this trilogy is one of the best things you're going to see and is far superior to any Brit-flicks which tackle the criminal underworld.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pusher fims. 8 Jan 2009
Format:DVD
Buy it. All fantastic films, not a scene wasted.

Great discovery with superb acting,story dialogue , cracking script,pace, music, you name it.

I have now ordered Bleeder, only wish the director had made more films.

Also very interesting directors comments throughout , he was only 24 when he made the first one , and shot in in about six weeks.

The best films I have seen for a long time, and I love films.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Trilogy! 17 Oct 2011
By T. S. C. VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Who'd have thought it; a set of gangster films set in Denmark?! Most people outside of Denmark think Lego, Danish pastries and bacon, and that's about it!

Anyway, I saw the first of the trilogy a good few years ago now, and really enjoyed it. I was surprised that there had been two new films with some of the same characters from the original movie.

The first movie is about Frank, and a drug deal that goes wrong, and, more and more, Frank finds himself in a pickle, and things go from bad to worse. We also meet Milo, a scary ganglord, and Tonny, a sort of bald-headed loser and friend of Frank, who ends up getting a battering from Frank. This is a really good movie.

The second movie is about Tonny, who is played by the excellent actor Mads Mikkelsen, in the first two films. He has got out of jail and finds he is about to be a father; he is hardly good father material. Well, things go from bad to worse for Tonny too, and he ends up in one unhappy experience after another. This is also a good movie.

The Third movie is about the ganglord Milo, who is in all three movies. This is about an aging gangster who finds that he and his territory is being encroached upon; and he doesn't like it. It also involves his daughter's marriage, and we see Milo juggling his square world with his underworld, and a drug addiction, and like a juggler he tries to manage all three; not too successfully as it stands. This is also a shocker, as you'll find out when you watch it!!! Not for the squeamish in any way!!!

So, this sheds some new light on Denmark, but these are excellent films that transcend this little-known corner of Europe, and for my money rate as some of the best gangster/underworld dramas ever made.

The quality of this DVD is very poor. It does not even cover the full screen and grain level is very high.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worthy of its reputation? Hmmm. A 'Must see'? Probably not.
Beware the hype. Pusher is okay - though given the unevenness of the direction, the acting and storylines I'd give it no more than 3 stars. Read more
