Casablanca-1Casablanca-3Casablanca-2

Michael Curtiz

Casablanca

USA 1942
In English / Finnish subtitles
102 min
Suitable for all audiences


If we identify strongly with the characters in some movies, then it is no mystery that "Casablanca" is one of the most popular films ever made. It is about a man and a woman who are in love, and who sacrifice love for a higher purpose. This is immensely appealing; the viewer is not only able to imagine winning the love of Humphrey Bogart or Ingrid Bergman, but unselfishly renouncing it, as a contribution to the great cause of defeating the Nazis.
