Notorious is as suspenseful as expected

5 second plot: It's 1946. WW II is just over but the Germans are still up to something. The US government asks Alicia (who's father was convicted for being a spy) to go undercover in Brazil and find out what they are up to. The fact that she falls in love with her contact, complicates things quite a bit.

5 second review: This is a typical Hitchcock: great visual work and a very suspenseful story. It's on a somewhat smaller scale. The story develops (mostly) in the heads of a handful of characters. No big effects: no birds flying to our heads and no airplane neither. Just smart spy stuff.

IMDb score: 8,2/10
