Death is a Caress
February 14, 2014
Celebrate Valentine's Day Noir style with this story of a young mechanic who falls under the spell of a sophisticated married socialite who's brought in her car for repairs. The sexual bliss is ecstatic-but short-lived.
A familiar noir plot plays quite differently in Norway, especially through the eyes of a female director.
