Pusher is a 1996 Danish crime film co-written and directed by Nicolas Winding Refn. The film was a success both in Denmark and many other European countries. The film became the first of a trilogy and launched Winding Refn's career. The film begins in Copenhagen with a low-level drug dealer Frank (Kim Bodnia) going to a heroin deal with his sidekick Tonny (Mads Mikkelsen). The pair only manage to sell some of their product, and then waste time about town. Frank then visits his friend Vic (Laura Drasbæk), a prostitute who holds some of Frank's stash for a fee. Vic wants to have a serious relationship with Frank, but Frank prefers to keep it purely casual.
