...it is my first comment on a Norwegian film. My friend told me it is the only film noir ever made in his country..
This is the story of a working man,who's got a gorgeous fiancée and who falls for a rich older woman,a femme fatale who will be his downfall.

Made at a time when women directors were rare (Ida Lupino,Jacqueline Audry),it is less eventful than the contemporary film noirs.
