What is the secret of Eva Berger, who is missing and may be a suicide?
22 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Ung frue forsvunnet" or "Young Woman Missing" is a Norwegian film noir dating from 1953, starring Adolf Bjerke as professor and husband (Arne Berger) of Astri Jacobsen (Eva Berger), who has gone missing. Her hat has turned up floating in the river, and she may be dead. A missing persons inspector is on the case, and she doggedly pursues every lead.

Through long flashbacks, we gradually learn that the missing wife of two years has a secret that she has kept from her husband. In fact, we learn a great deal about her life and character, in what turns out to be a searching examination. The revelations are done suspensefully, right up to the climax. The movie combines police procedural with narratives.

This is a very serious movie. Sometimes, it approaches being didactic. The main character, Eva Berger, does get depressed and desperate quite often. The movie's not entirely without humor, however.

Overall, it's a decent and genuine noir that's unusual in being so biographical. Astri Jacobsen is memorable as Eva Berger, showing many sides to her personality.
