The hard-boiled private eye, Werner, has to deal with a beautiful and deadly femme fatale, a brutal chief of police, and a gangster boss called "the Spaniard" as he fights against crime and corruption in this Norwegian take on Hollywood's 1940s detective flicks. Written by
BLACKOUT by Erik Gustavson is a film trying to copy the classic film-noir look seen in CHINATOWN, and in any film-noir from the 1940`s. He uses all the classic elements, femme-fatale, dark streets, elements of crime, murder mystery . . . .
Some people I know have this film as one of their favourites, but my opinion is it`s just a weak copy of the great american films.
Later he did another copy of a great genre, road-movies, with the film WEEKEND which was a failure in Norway.
