Day 015: Casablanc

The last free port and the last ticket out for so many is a place of dreams, scandal, bribery and murder!
1942, Rick (Humphrey Bogart) man with a complicated past runs a bar in Casablanca where everything is for sale, even freedom, as long as Rick doesn’t have to put his neck on the line.
With resistance leaders, mercenaries and the Reich all vying for Rick’s favours life only becomes more complicated with the arrival of Rick’s ex-lover – Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman).
A hard choice between personal happiness or countless lives creates such tension that in some way you know there can be no happy ending.
Not for everyone.
Classic and beautiful movie, with a love story that just brings you back time and time again. Beautiful.
It is easy to see how the movie won three Academy Awards (Picture, Director & Screenplay).
Things to look out for: you must remember this, nice flashback, Peter Lorre is superb, Dooley Wilson as Sam
Released: 1942
Certificate: U
Cast: Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Claude Rains, Paul Henreid
Rating: romantic and tragic drama, highly recommended
