Need We Say More?
What ultimately makes Casablanca special is the insane amount of passion present in every word spoken and every shot framed. The movie wasn't expected by anyone to be anything special. It was a romance set in wartime, and the story is an old one. But the cast of thousands, the undeniable chemistry between Bogart and Bergman, and the elegant blend of humor and painful, chest-gripping sadness made this movie a treasure. It will remain a classic for the rest of time.
We went into this game fully expecting to sob like children. So how long did we hold out? I'm ashamed to say, not long enough.
