Dealer
(Dealer)

feature, 35mm, 135 minutes, cinemascope

PREMIER (HUNGARY): 2004.

When the night is in its darkest hour, it's then that dawn is the closest.

Only for adult audiences with strong nerves!

Dealer tells the story of a day in the life of a drug dealer.
The main character moves around in a series of different social settings but this film is more about personal tragedy than the drug scene and takes a good look at ancient questions of fate. How much can we influence our fate?
When do we make the bad decisions in life that might even lead to death?
