Well they said a 1942’s movie was hell of a distant past to be watched. Finally my curiosity conquered my mind.
Seeming to be quintessential love story between Rick and Ilsa, the movie shows how the time and situation overpowers their fate. There had to be a choice. All of this happens while you experience the political scene of WWII. The heroic stand of Rick for the couple Ilsa and Victor Laszlo to escape left me awestruck. It showed how bitterness dissolves, a possibility reveals but with a pinch of heartbeat.
At the last moment, Rick makes Ilsa board the plane to Lisbon from Casablanca with her husband, telling her she would regret it if she stayed – “Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.”
