Excellent Danish crime drama has distinct echoes of early Nicolas Winding Refn in its story of a young man drawn into the Copenhagen underworld while looking to provide for his mum and younger brother. As he begins to savour the benefits of a life of crime, he must stop his more impressionable sibling from following in his footsteps while staving off trouble from a rival gang of immigrants. Perhaps not wholly original, this is still quality work thanks to strong performances and assured direction.
