Watching Casablanca

I've seen "Casablanca" many times before, and while I was sick, I saw it again. Set in 1941, it is the story of Rick Blaine, a saloon owner living in Free French Morocco. When his path crosses with Ilsa Lund, his old love, and her husband, Victor Laszlo, an important leader of the Resistance Movement, he must decide whether to give them the letters of transit, documents that will get them to Lisbon and then America.

Casablanca can be a bit sappy sometimes, but it is certainly a classic film, and very good overall. All of the characters are well portrayed, and it is an entertaining movie. My favorite scene may just be when the Germans start singing their anthem, but La Marsielles drowns it out. Casablanca is full of great acting.

4 stars.
