5.0 out of 5 stars ILLUSTRIOUS INGRID INVOKES IMMORTALITY, 29 May 2009

This review is from: Notorious [1946] [DVD] (DVD)
ILLUSTRIOUS INGRID INVOKES IMMORTALITY -
IF there ever was a competition for the most magical screen pairing CARY GRANT-INGRID BERGMAN will win it hands down for their magical,enigmatic & magnetic chemistry which scorches the screen in this post-war espionage romance from the master of cinema who pays a homage to ethical art in this tale of treachery and deception .

the story shifts from Miami to RIO de janiero,the lead duo bring a panache which only Hitchcock can infuse into stars with an endowing emotion that galvanizes a thriller to life .

Devlin [grant ]recruits Alicia[ingrid ] to entrap a neo -Nazi Brazilian group headed by Claude Rains developing uranium enrichment facilities ,as devlin despicably tutors her to seduce claude and to wed the nazi to perform an inside job ,this initial battle of sexes gives way to an ethereal love story as devlin realises he has been smitten by alicia.

The drama works at many dimensions,from the exchange of torrid glances between the haunted lovers to ultimately evoking envy when grant finally kisses ingrid in a sumptuous and delicately triumphant love scene which is a milestone in cinema .

This is a fever pitch drama immersed in lover's dilemma but love is relegated to the back seat
,but it is the notoriously ravishing and illustriously talented Bergman who is the cause celebre in a complex,multi-layered role executed with immense style and talent galore as the vulnerable victim and the maligned wife suffering at the hands of both society and the neo-nazis trapped in a magical web of deceit weaved by the genius of Hitchcock.

An intelligent script with sharp dialogues and smooth characters restores your faith in love and feminine purity,this makes modern romances look like kitsch,and the tension evolves into a perilous yet piquant journey which is disturbing yet intensely profound and satisfying .

Hitchcock's tormented lovers are emotionally fragile as they overcome their lacerated consciousness to suppress the moral inhibitions to triumph in the greatest love story ever made ,
their innocence and vulnerability demonstrated by Ingrid Bergman is equivocal to a sacred and ethereal enigma while the suspense evolves as a perilous foray into terror and Cary grant as Devlin has never given a better account of his supercilious charm enriched with a wondrous warmth .

it is interesting that FBI STARTED AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE PRODUCTION as it involves a uranium enrichment theme.
