Director: Michael Curtiz
Year: 1942
Stars: Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid, Claude Rains, Conrad Veidt

Two Ingrid Bergman films in three days? Must be a record! I almost never watch that many old movies so close together.

Now, I've seen this before - perhaps unsurprisingly. I wasn't really intending upon watching it, but it was on TV, and it's a hard film to ignore. It's good. What's not to love about it? A guy who moves to Casablanca, is bitter about love, then the woman walks back into his life... but why? If you don't know the answers, or the story, it's probably best you watch the film for yourself. But all those quotes you know, they'll all be there... "Here's looking at you kid", "We'll always have Paris", "We both know three people don't amount to a hill of beans in this world" etc, etc.

Rating: 5 out of 5

About Me

My photo
I live in Bristol with my husband Dan (who I married in July 2007), my son Joe (born 2012) and daughter Jess (born 2015). I work at UWE (the University of the West of England) in Bristol as a Research and Open Access Librarian. I'm orginally from Exeter, so moving back to Bristol is a bit like coming home - especially as I studied for my undergraduate degree here (also at UWE). I love travelling and movies, although I get to do a lot less of both since the birth of our children. Although we have still managed to fit in holidays to the Isles of Scilly, Chamonix and a summer in California since Joe was born.
