Snabba Cash, based on a novel by Jens Lapidus, follows three interconnected storylines involving drugs and organized crime, with the main character a young man who hopes to strike it rich quickly by becoming a runner for a coke dealer. JW, the Stureplan guy, deals cocaine in the hot spots of the Stockholm nightlife. The upper class guys he hangs out with don’t know what an upstart he is and they can’t see through his lies about his background. Jorge, the Latino, knows everything there is to know about coke. He pulls off an unbelievably stylish escape from the Correctional Institution of Osteraker. Once out he starts planning a cruel revenge on the mafia thugs who framed him. Mrado, now the mafia boss Radovan’s cutthroat, was previously one of war criminal Arkan’s feared men. The only thing he knows is how to indiscriminately torture and torment. These three men cross paths in a way that can only end in a fight to the death. –Ghent Film Festival
Yet again the Swedes give us another example of why the quote 'Danes make films and Swedes make pop songs' rings true, as this was a lesson in how not to make a film. Pretty weak acting, plot holes aplenty and some of the worst directing I've seen in a long time really made me two hours feel like about ten. Crime doesn't pay and neither does 'stylish' camera work merely for the sake of it.
