“Here’s looking at you, kid.”
One of Hollywood’s most loved films, classic film Casablanca never loses its appeal with its gripping mix of bittersweet romance, smart comedy and wartime drama.
The iconic cast, led by Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart, tell the story of Rick, whose cafe is a site for Europeans obtaining exit visas to escape the Nazis. When old flame Ilsa and her husband, resistance leader Victor Laszlo, turn up in Casablanca, Rick faces an agonising moral dilemma: help the woman he loves and lose her forever, or betray her husband to the Germans.
