The gangster's apprentice

Esben Høilund Carlsen, Denmark, 1976

96 min.DK/Feature

Martin holds down a boring civil service job. At his father's funeral he meets his otherwise forgotten half-sister, who leads him into a world of sexual thrills and crime. A gangster pushes Anja, a pretty gun moll, into his arms, aiming at making him an actual accomplice in big scale illegal dealings. When Martin hopes that he can save Anja, the gangster dumps him, initiating his dizzily, spiraling deroute.
