Pretty Boy 1993
Smukke dreng (original title)
1h 26min | Drama | 26 March 1993 (Denmark
A neglected, young teenager abandons his troubled home and finds himself caught in a network of jealousy as he drifts from one romantic companion to another, longing for belonging, while living as a hustler and thief among a gang of such.
This is the somewhat gritty and arresting tale of Nick, a 13 year-old runaway who misses out on several opportunities to have a better life. He falls in with a gang of thieves and hustlers led by René, a girl posing as a boy (played by Danish singing star Dicte). The viewer sees not only the sordid world of male prostitution and anonymous gay sex but also the betrayal of trust that Nick suffers from those to whom he turns for love and help.
