Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Danish director Bodil Ipsen demonstrates her devotion to American "film noirs" in Red Meadows. Set during WW II, the film concerns the exploits of a group of Danish resistance fighters. Ipsen raised a few eyebrows back in 1950 for her comparatively sympathetic portrayal of a German occupation officer who befriends a member of the underground -- though he was careful to show the bestiality of the Nazis during a grueling torture sequence. The story ends with a rousing gun battle and a desperate escape bid. Red Meadows is allegedly based on a true story.
