They had a date with fate in Casablanca!
In World War II Casablanca, Rick Blaine, exiled American and former freedom fighter, runs the most popular nightspot in town. The cynical lone wolf Blaine comes into the possession of two valuable letters of transit. When Nazi Major Strasser arrives in Casablanca, the sycophantic police Captain Renault does what he can to please him, including detaining a Czechoslovak underground leader Victor Laszlo. Much to Rick's surprise, Lazslo arrives with Ilsa, Rick's one time love. Rick is very bitter towards Ilsa, who ran out on him in Paris, but when he learns she had good reason to, they plan to run off together again using the letters of transit. Well, that was their original plan....

An exceptional masterpiece.

  • Stellar performances by Bogart, Bergman, Henreld and Rains
  • The writing and dialog are extremely well done
  • Breathtaking scenery and lighting (remember this is the 40s so CGI is unheard of)
  • Fun music and OST

I heard about all the praise the movie received but after watching it, it is now easily in my top movies of all time.

Here's looking at you, kid
