Casablanca

[cert U, 103 mins]

In wartime Casablanca, Rick Blaine, exiled American
and former freedom fighter, runs the most popular
nightspot in town. Cynical lone wolf Blaine comes
into the possession of two valuable letters of
transit. When Nazi Major Strasser arrives in
Casablanca, sycophantic police Captain Renault
does what he can to please him, including detaining
Czech underground leader Victor Laszlo. Much to
Rick's surprise, Lazslo arrives with Ilsa, Rick's one
time love. Rick is very bitter towards Ilsa, who ran
out on him in Paris, but when he learns she had
good reason to, they plan to run off together again
using the letters of transit. Well, that was the
original plan...
