The trend toward remaking great films from Scandinavia continues with this remake of the 1996 Danish film Pusher, which was so successful it spawned two sequels.  At least I’m told the original was great.  I didn’t see that original film, but I’m told by people whose opinions I value highly that it is a terrific.  It’s on my list of movies to watch.
