Casablanca is the rare film that has remained, immutable, in every medium, invoked by everything from Barb Wire to The Simpsons. In fact, like The Wizard of Oz, one might have the plot and dialogue down simply through sheer pop cultural osmosis. But why? For one, the movie occurs inside a certain romantic ghetto.

This is a cult film, par excellence. There are parts i know by heart but i they always move me. There are phrases that entered in the vocabulary of everyday life. Boggie and Bacal certainly make an outstanding couple but here there is also a chemistry between him and Ingrid Bergman. The secondary roles are also amazing and this is the beginning of something magic
