The basic story of a young criminal not quite living up to his ideals of "not to give a damn" sidestepping out of his criminal career while dragging his younger brother into it, could have been interesting. The implementation is simply not good enough. When it comes to Danes movies, there is little appreciation for detail thus leaving us with hoodlums who talk like they've done time at a business academy rather than a prison. Biker characters without bikes or even character are completely out of here. The slow pace of the film doesn't help, but it does give a glimpse of what the story could have been if there had been more time.
Portland is a 1996 Danish drama film written and directed by Niels Arden Oplev, in his feature film debut. It stars Anders W. Berthelsen, Ulrich Thomsen, and Iben Hjejle. The film, whose title is a reference to a Danish brand of cement, was selected for competition at the 46th Berlin International Film Festival.
