...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.
Sometimes looking like a "Room at the top" in reverse (but the Norwegian work was made before Clayton's one),the relationship between the two lovers is harsh and the last picture makes your hair stand on end.
Made at a time when women directors were rare (Ida Lupino,Jacqueline Audry),it is less eventful than the contemporary film noirs.
