CGiii Comment

Back in the 40’s homosexuality on film was never apparent in Denmark (or anywhere). Instead, the art of suggestion was practised, in which on a small scale represented something else than the heteronorm. A splendid example of this is the eerie and impressive thriller “Murder Melody”. A series of ghastly and unsolved murders, a distant and mysterious cabaret singer, her - at least - as mysterious and affected former partner plus a worn out and lonely lesbian dresser, other striking characters and a brilliantly arranged plot distinguishes this film noir as absolutely worth watching in many ways.
