The story is framed by Erik’s jailhouse interview with his lawyer and is told in flashback, from Erik’s perspective, but Carlmar aims the movie’s energy at Sonja and her destructive impulses. The movie’s looming menace offers a glimpse at the essential tragic conflict between sex and society, between a woman’s public life and her intimate yearnings.

Death Is a Caress (Døden er et kjærtegn) was the first Norwegian film directed by a woman, and the country’s first film noir… How a healthy, normal relationship that meets few obstacles ends in despair and blood is the dark thread of this unusual film: an everyday melodrama.
