Portland

Niels Arden Oplev, Denmark, 1996

103 min.DK/Feature

Drama with touches of baroque humour: Janus, an ex-con and a dope-addict, hangs tough. In a rough way, he wants to protect Jakob, his kid brother, who looks to Janus for a measure of security in an uncertain world that happens to be the underworld of a big provincial city. Janus is in debt to a crime boss and also has something going with the boss's sister. Now, it's time for Jakob to stand on his own feet.
