Notorious: Celebrating the Ingrid Bergman Centenary: "Notorious" (1946) ★★★★★

Every time I watch a movie from the Golden Age of Hollywood, I start thinking of how much we have lost nowadays. There are no such movies anymore where an innocent touch and gentle kiss can make two people fall madly for each other, and next day to lose their minds. 498 more words

I happen to be a Swede myself - Sweden, Ingrid Bergman and Billy Bragg

We are spending two weeks of our summer vacation here in the delightful ancient university town of Lund in southern Gotland, Sweden.
