Henrik Scheele stars as Werner, a hard-boiled Norwegian private eye. Wading through the corruption all around him, Werner tries to keep things from getting nastier by preventing a gangster takeover in his home turf. True to the traditions of film noir, Werner's off-hours are occupied by all sorts of beautiful, long-stemmed women. Deliberately evocative of Hollywood's 1940s detective flicks, Black Out earned a Norwegian film award for its cinematography and production design. An American release is long overdue.
