Notorious

Alfred Hitchcock | U.S.A. | | PG
Film

Ingrid Bergman, Cary Grant and Alfred Hitchcock team up for one of the highlights of their respective careers and one of the greatest Hollywood films of the 1940s.

[Bergman] is magnificent in this lethally elegant, stylish and grippingly well-told thriller

The Guardian

Ingrid Bergman gives an outstanding performance as Alicia Huberman, the American daughter of a convicted spy who is 'courted' by suave spy Devlin (Cary Grant) to infiltrate a Nazi organisation in post-war South America. As they begin to fall for one another, Alicia learns that her mission is to seduce the sophisticated Nazi leader heading the operation, Alexander Sebastian (Claude Rains). When Sebastian becomes serious about his relationship with Alicia, the stakes get higher and the morals get murkier, and Devlin must watch her slip further undercover.

A complex, bittersweet, brilliantly constructed and shot romantic thriller, Notorious also represents a peak in studio filmmaking in its use of sets, Hollywood stars and Ted Tetzlaff's wonderfully expressive cinematography. Just a few years after the film's release, Bergman would become the subject of real life notoriety, and Notorious became "one of the last movies in her glorious Hollywood studio era." (The Guardian)
