Murder in Paradise

Sune Lund-Sørensen, Denmark, 1988

91 min.DK/Feature

The tough-sentimental hero of "Murder in the Dark" is being punished by his city desk editor with an assignment to cover a story in a provincial town far away from his beloved Copenhagen mean streets. Everything radiates idyll, but lo and behold, big-time crime is where you find it, and our friend finds plenty. A very contemporary tale and in more ways than one a film noir in colour.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
