"Nedbrudte Nerver" (1923) By A. W. Sandberg
11 March 2011 | by FerdinandVonGalitzienSee all my reviews

The intrepid police-reporter Herr Jimmie Brand ( Herr Gorm Schmidt ) works for the "Daily Wire". After three days of investigation he solves the case of the Vibeleje murder. However, this put Herr Brand in a terrible stressed condition and for this reason his boss decides to give him two weeks of vacation.

But it will be a restless sabbatical because Herr Brand will witness a strange crime in broad daylight in the Hill Park as he is looking through the window of his home. Of course, our intrepid reporter decides to solve such a mysterious crime.

The style and artistic film influences of Herr A. W. Sandberg made him probably the most "Americanized" among the Danish film directors. That's an aristocratic appreciation that can be verified in "Nedbrudte Nerver" ( The Hill Park Mystery - 1923), a fairly well made detective und comedy film in which the Danish director uses and plays with the elements that such kind of film needs.

The influences of "Nedbrudte Nerver" can be tracked back to early serial films as well as mystery and crime films. By mixing such film genres, Herr Sandberg, in a peculiar way, prevails with a special Danish sense of humor that certainly is full of witticism, irony and slander. Herr Sandberg creates a very peculiar and funny hero who's a stressed and earnest police-reporter that will try to solve any crime he faces.

As this Herr Graf said before, the film has all the ingredients that this peculiar film genre needs; that is to say, a mysterious and unresolved crime, an enigmatic woman and a lot of misunderstandings. Let's not forget to mention as an bonus the pretty Danish girls in bathing suits, some particularly Danish lovesick anatomy studies such as "you have such lovely eyes, especially the right one" or genuine Danish love proposals, as for an example, "I love you; you are not like any other. If others were like you, there would not be many others. I love you!".

Herr Sandberg handled very well these film elements in an effective way, achieving a very entertaining and funny work. It is certainly a film that is harmless and predictable but precisely due to the unpretentious atmosphere together with Herr Sandberg professional nature and resoluteness, "Nedbrudte Nerver" is an estimable and a very good example of the spirit of mystery film. It's one in which pure and simple entertainment is what matters over all and certainly this film fulfils such intentions.

And now, if you'll allow me, I must temporarily take my leave because this German Count must to keep secret some minor crimes of the aristocracy.
