They had a date with fate in Casablanca!
Casablanca is a classic and one of the most revered films of all time. Starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in a love triangle in the city of Casablanca which is a refuge for many fleeing foreigners looking for a new life during the war. Political romance with a backdrop of war conflict between democracy and totalitarianism. A landmark in film history.
Bogey as Rick a bar owner in Casablanca who bumps into an old flame and the sparks fly in this all-time classic tale of true love. Awesome juggler. The monkey from The Hangover 2's grandmonkey. Back shot. Refugee roundup. Goofy Nazis. The doorman at Rick's has a badass hat. Cheerio? The first time you see Bogey. Sneaky Paul Lorre. Sam sure can sing. Flirtatious bartender. True Democrat? Ze Plane! Ze Plane! Real motherfuckers speak clearly with a cigarette in their mouth. Fashion nightmare mustaches. Cash in. Check out. Mr. Neutrality. Symbolic ring. The Forbidden Song. Casablanca is the story of a love triangle and the first time Rick, Iisa, and Victor are together they appear to be standing in a…
I hope everybody here has that one movie where you can put on at any time, and get a huge smile across your face. It's the definition of entertainment at the movies for me. No matter how many times I watch it, it will never get old, grow tiresome, or run its' course. From Rick's signature introduction all the way to that classic scene on the runway, this is a beautiful friendship that will not end any time soon.
Set in unoccupied France in the Morrocan city of Casablanca, Humphrey Bogart is Rick Blaine, owner of Rick's Cafe Americain. When stolen 'letters of transit' are stashed in the saloon, it is Captain Louis Renault (Claude Rains) and Major Strasser of…
A couple of years ago, romance used to be my least favoured genre for every film I'd seen until then had a predictable storyline, over-the-top melodrama, the same repeated idea of love & nothing much happened in them plot-wise throughout the runtime. The exceptions were too few but they were so because of reasons which had nothing to do with romance.
Not much has changed in the past two years but having come across some extraordinary films in that time which made me see this genre with an entirely new perspective, including 2013 releases like Richard Linklater's Before Midnight, Spike Jonze's Her & the Palme d'Or winner Blue Is the Warmest Color, I do now have a new-found respect & appreciation for romantic…
I hate it when people say stuff like: "You should watch this because it's a masterpiece!"
Those people are annoying idiots.
You should watch this because it's a masterpiece!
Happy Birthday to me.
Here's to a beautiful friendship.
And I'm fortunate to have many in my life.
I suspect this review may mark the the end of several beautiful friendships.
I always knew I'd be underwhelmed by Casablanca. I've spent so many years watching silly Bollywood melodramas that I've developed quite an aversion to cinematic romances. (I do enjoy every Austen adaptation thoroughly, because a) Mr Darcy, and b) I'm immeasurably fond of Austen's work.) Casablanca, however, was supposed to be different from all the other ones. I was supposed to fall in love with it. Or something like that.
What's the deal here? It's pretty funny, and Humphrey Bogart is wonderful, and the supporting cast is great, especially Claude Rains. It's well-paced and atmospheric. It's just not - ah, forget it. Of course Casablanca is a…
Often hailed as one of America’s greatest all-time films, Casablanca represents classic Hollywood style. It stars Humphrey Bogart as Rick Blaine and Ingrid Bergman as Ilsa Lunda in a tale of romance, political intrigue and redemption. Set during World War II in French Morocco, most of the action takes place around Rick’s café and features a motley crew of supporting characters, including a corrupt Moroccan police chief named Captain Louis Renault (Claude Rains), a French patriot and resistance leader, Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid), members of the German Gestapo led by Major Heinrich Strasser (Conrad Veidt), African-American piano player Sam (Dooley Wilson), and an assortment of gamblers, crooks, refugees and hired hands. With an alternately funny and cathartic screenplay, Casablanca features seamless editing, expressive lighting, accomplished set design and an unforgettable story.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

best ending of all time
Ich seh dir in die Augen kleines
Still one of the best films of all time. What is there to say but it is a beautiful piece of work.
Casablanca is a very good movie, detailed, well-acted, polished and enjoyable, but it's not a great romance, it's not that emotive nor a masterpiece.
Great love story, with a world war 2 backdrop.
A stylish and iconic film most notable for its indescribable feel of mystery. I'll be watching this many more times in the future.
I've been lucky to see Casablanca twice on a big screen and it was a great experience both times. Bold and taking unexpected directions, it's a film that honestly earns its reputation as a classic. With a great sense of humour and solid chemistry between the whole cast, it's a film that is aways worth revisiting to see a statement about love and war and sacrifice.
