To the heart of a woman

2006, video with sound, 9.40 min

Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant kissing in Hitchcock's film 'Notorious' from 1946. For a long time the kiss was known to be the longest in film history.
The film clip has been reworked to fit a new soundtrack. An originally long kiss becomes uncomfortably prolonged whilst Cary Grant’s lips are synced to the words of a dating Guru reciting cheap subliminal tricks to bed women. Romantic desires confict and timeless screen romance is played out by its lonely, desperate counterpart.
