" Les Enchaînés is the quintessence of Hitchcock." FRANCOIS TRUFFAUT
Miami, 1946. Alicia Huberman is the daughter of a German-born spy who has just been sentenced to twenty years in prison for high treason against the United States. Shortly after the verdict, she is contacted by an American agent named Devlin, who offers her the following mission: to go to Brazil to infiltrate a group of former Nazis who were in contact with her father. Although in love with Devlin, Alicia is ordered to seduce their leader, Alexander Sebastian…
Having become inseparable from his legendary couple formed by Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman, Les Enchaînés is not only one of Alfred Hitchcock's greatest successes, but is also one of the masterpieces of the seventh art. In this spy film mixing suspense and romance, the English filmmaker offers a pure lesson in directing coupled with a brilliant allegory on love and betrayal. A monument of cinema to be found in its sublime restored version!
