25 – Casablanca (1942)

The blue parrot?More like the grey parrot.

One of the most quoted films ever in my opinion.The last 10 minutes more than the rest of the film.Bogart stars as Rick,owner of Ricks American Café.As you probably guessed the film is set in Casablanca in the north of Africa during Germany’s invasion through Europe.Loads of people are trying to leave for America because shits about to hit the fan  and the only way to get to the U.S. is via Lisbon but there’s Nazis everywhere so people have to go to Casablanca to get to Lisbon.Ricks old flame shows up with her husband intending to leave but Rick has acquired their travel documents.That sums up the whole plot.Not much to it.There’s a few good jokes , notably the old couple who get taught English by some guy who can hardly speak it himself.The song ‘as time goes by’ is played about 28 times in the 105 minutes of film.No mean feat I’ll give you that.

IMDB RATING      –     8.6
MY RATING     –    7
SEEN BEFORE     –    NO
RECOMMEND?     –     NO
OVERALL     –  SOME GOOD CAMERA WORK,THE ZOOM ON BOGART AND INGMANS BEING A COUPLE OF THEM.
