Casablanca (1942)

The classic black and white film starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Berman, set in Casablanca during the second world war. It sees Rick Blaine played by Humphrey Bogart as the proprietor of Ricks a night club that is in unoccupied Africa in the early part of the war. You have the Germans and locals moving around freely and interacting with each other. While there and wanting to leave Rick runs in to Ilsa an old flame who left him in Paris without an explanation. You then follow them as they plan to flee Africa and war torn Europe to the sanctity of America.

This film is a classic and if you love film like I do even if you have never seen it you will know many of the lines and I cannot believe again that as with so many classics I have waited so long to see this film. It really is a great film and explores life and love with the backdrop of war and what you will actually do to for those you love and how what they do while it can hurt can also have meaning to you. The classic nature of the film has some slight flaws as you think you know what is going to happen but I recommend that you sit back and let yourself become immersed in Africa during the war.

This truly is a classic film and I cannot really recommend it any further than this, it is a solid 5 star recommend and everything good you have heard about it is true and it is well worth seeing.
