Girl with Hyacinths (1950)



Dagmar Brink, a young female pianist, dies by suicide in her Stockholm apartment. She leaves all her belongings to her next-door neighbors, an author and his wife. Perplexed and curious, they investigate the girl’s reasons for taking her life. As they visit Dagmar’s friends, acquaintances and former boyfriends, her story unfolds. She stands out as loner, a woman no one could really grasp, always in want of something that nobody she met could make out.

Eddie Muller described this as a “masterpiece” Swedish noir by “recently rediscovered” filmmaker Hasse Ekman on his podcast. Bergman apparently called it a masterpiece, too.

It's on vimeo with English subs.

Muller also mentioned Ekman’s The Girl from the Third Row (1949) and The White Cat (1950) as being worth checking out.

Quote from: The Girl from the Third Row (1949)
A ring passes between a lot of different people, giving the bearer or someone close a new meaning to life. Actors, embezzlers, old ladies and cheated husbands all seem to gain temporary hope from misery and disillusionment.

Quote from: The White Cat (1950)
A man comes to Stockholm’s central station. He does not know who he is or where he has been. He has some keys and a phone number. Perhaps he is the escaped sex maniac the police are searching for. A waitress at a café tries to help him.
