Dealer (Dealer)

(2004, feature, 35mm, color, 135 minutes, cinemascope, DTS)

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?
