Pretty Boy

Carsten Sønder, Denmark, 1993

85 min.DK/Feature

Nick is a 13-year-old boy whore, a runaway from his home and the leader of a pack of other boys plying the same trade in a rather unprofessional way. One client substitutes as a father figure for Nick. But when Nick becomes too dependent on him, Nick is turned out. Back on the streets, Nick joins a tougher gang that specializes in sexual power games, where violence is very much a part of the act.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
