Casablanca is a 1942 romantic drama starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. It was directed by Michael Curtiz.

An absolute classic.

Casablanca. Plot. Synopsis

Humphrey Bogart plays Richard “Rick” Blaine, a cynical but good-hearted American whose café is the gathering place for everyone from the French Police to the black market to the Nazis. When his long-lost love, Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman), surfaces in Casablanca with her Resistance leader husband, Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid), Rick is pulled into both a love triangle and a web of political intrigue. Ilsa and Victor need to escape from Casablanca, and Rick may be the only one who can help them. The question is, will he? (Filmaffinity)

“Seeing the film over and over again, year after year, I find it never grows over-familiar. It plays like a favorite musical album; the more I know it, the more I like it (…) Rating: ???? (out of 4)” Roger Ebert: rogerebert.com
