Casablanca is truly one of the all-time greats. From the smart and revealing dialogue to the noirish setting, the film is spectacular in the way it crafts a unique world of espionage and spoiled romance. All of the principal leads are equally memorable, though Humphrey Bogart gets the lion's share of the script's iconic lines.

Some good dialogue and acting, in a story of past romance and political dealings. I give this film points for it's competence and great ending, but I just didn't care much for it the way most everyone seems to.

I'm not sure why I waited so long to see this movie, but this film truly deserves it's status as one of the greatest films in of all time. The fact that you can watch something made 70 years ago and see it still hold up today is a true feat. The story is engaging, the dialogue crisp, the characters intriguing, and the climax heartbreaking. Truly one of the greats.

"Casablanca" by Yojimbo

Wartime cafe owner Humphrey Bogart's life is turned upside down when the woman who broke his heart walks into his bar with her husband, a fugitive from the Nazis, looking for an escape to America. This is one of those films the phrase "they don't make 'em like that anymore" was invented for. At its core it is a propaganda film made to encourage the American public to join the fight against the Nazis, but it is far from the usual heavy handed flag waver. It skillfully interweaves the patriotic message with political intrigue, wartime heroics and romance with a script full of wit and sophistication. The cast are all pretty much faultless, but it is the uneasy friendship between Bogart and the brilliant Claude Rains which makes the film, and their cynical interplay and banter is a joy to beh...

Casablanca review

Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) owns Rick's Café Américain in Casablanca. He bumps into an old flame Norwegian Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergman) with her husband Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid) who is a fugitive Czech Resistance leader that escaped from a Nazi camp. Captain Louis Renault (Claude Rains) is a friend of Rick’s and a corrupt official. Political tensions arise in the Café and Major Heinrich Strasser ensures that Laszlo doesn’t conduct any revolt against the German’s. The priceless "letters of transit" have been used to flee Ilsa and Victor. Some of the many memorable quotes that I enjoyed: Rick –"Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life." Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship." Victor – “Apparently you think of me only as t...

A bonafide classic!!!!!

If ever a film deserved to be considered a classic then this is it, even if you haven't seen it before you'll recognise much of the dialogue; it is probably the most quoted, and misquoted, film of all time. Humphrey Bogart is excellent in this career defining role as bar owner Rick Blaine who has come into possession of two "letters of transit" which guarantee the holders unhindered passage out of Casablanca. He has these as Ugarte, the man who asked him to look after them, was captured by the Vichy French police before he could get them back. Ugarte had been planning to sell the documents to Victor Laszlo, a Czech nationalist who is fleeing from Nazi occupied Europe to the United States via neutral Portugal. Things are complicated by the fact that Laszlo's wife Ilsa had a relationship wi...
