A timeless classic, as powerful today as it ever was, with the perfect blend of suspense, drama, emotion, intrigue and romance.
Set in French Morocco during the Second World War, a hard-bitten nightclub owner abandons his cynical ways to assist his former love and her fiancé to escape persecution. Humphrey Bogart & Ingrid Bergman demonstrate how powerful screen chemistry can be and all the supporting performances are excellent.
Casablanca is not just a movie, it is a bonafide work of art.
You must remember this, a kiss is still a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh. The fundamental things apply, as time goes by.
