One of the greatest films ever made
Verified purchase
This is rightly considered one of the best films ever made. On every level it is wonderful to watch. Amazing performances by some of cinemas most iconic actors (even smaller parts with Peter Laure and Sidney Greenstreet) . The plot is fantastic and location atmospheric. It was almost certainly filmed on a set in Hollywood rather than actual Casablanca as the war was still on but you know what I mean. I had fond memories of this film which I last saw maybe 30 years ago. My family hasn’t seen it so rented it from Amazon. We were all blown away by
It. Just a beautiful film.

Fantastic film
Verified purchase
A story woven around a cafe/bar in wartime Casablanca. It's 1942; Vichy officials with shifting loyalties, an on-the-run Czech and his wife, bad-guy Germans, stolen 'exit' papers and rounding out the list of protagonists Rick, the seemingly cynical owner of the bar attempting to thread his way between all of this.

The main theme voiced by Dooley Wilson is wonderful, the acting is terrific and I don't mind admitting to a tear or two before the end.

If you haven't watched this yet, round up the usual suspects, make time to enjoy first class acting and music and immerse yourself in this wonderful film.

A classic but with old fashioned standards
Verified purchase
I used to love this film and it is a classic. But, when you examine it closely you realise that it’s not the great romance it purports to be. (Spoiler alert - Rick was dumped and he’s always been angry, now he gets the opportunity to make the woman crawl to him and say it was the biggest mistake of her life, and then he dumps her which makes him feel like a hero) . Hmmmphhh.

Casablanca is a classic. Most people have seen it. Most of them liked it. There is nothing really to say about it. If you haven't seen it then go watch it. It's as good as everybody says it is. Great performances, iconic scenes, great direction and pacing. Also the picture and sound quality is very good for a film that's 70 years old.

This DVD is packed with great amount of extra content that covers the production, main stars and the cinematic influence.

*Commentary by Film Historian Rudy Behlmer
*Introduction by Lauren Bacall(Bogart's wife)

*Trailers for Robin Hood(1938) and Treasure for Sierra Madre

Disc 2:
*6 min interview with Ingrid Bergman's daughter and Humphrey Bogart's son
*You Must Remember This: A Tribute To Casablanca - A making of documentary
*Bacall on Bogart - 80 min long documentary on Humphrey Bogart's career

Not 'the beginning of a beautiful friendship' - but the continuation, At £17 plus I was concerned about the price. But no longer. Simply stunning and I mean stunning (the 70th anniversary edition) . I will watch again and again. This is what blu ray is for, the classics re-mastered. Forget the newer films; bish, bang, bosh and largely forgettable. Not this film. Buy & enjoy, Again and again. Worth every penny

Utterly fabulous

There's a daft Hollywood "making-of" short that tries to pretend the film was some kind of "accident". Nonsense, it was a piece of propaganda intended to persuade the American people that they should rescue Europe. It was right to do so, of course.

What remains astonishing that the film's heart never misses a beat. I don't know how many times I've watched it, but I still cry in places and laugh out loud in others. How many films can you say that about?

It's a simple story, really. A good man, wounded in love, goes to a remote place to drown his sorrows. To his astonishment, the woman he has never stopped loving walks into his bar. For much of the story his bitterness prevents a resolution, but an example of selfless love is placed before him and this fundamentally moral man finds he has no choice but to live up to his own real values.
But it's much, much more exciting, funny and moving than I've described it.
Enjoy!

The ULTIMATE EDITION of the ULTIMATE CULT FILM
Verified purchase
Few people would argue that " CASABLANCA" is the ultimate cult film. I can't think of another that has more memorable moments or more lines of dialogue that have passed into Hollywood folkore. Since the onset of the home video market in the early 1980s, it has been issued and re-issued several times in various formats - VHS, Laserdisc,DVD even Blu-ray - and there can be no real film buff who does not possess a copy of it in some form. So why pay out a significant sum of money to own this new 3-disc super-deluxe 70th Anniversary Edition ? Well, it depends on how much affection you have for this exceptional film. If you want to see it in a glorious new 4K scan that surpasses even the much-heralded Blu-ray of just two years ago, then this is the version for you. Truthfully, the film has never looked more ravishingly pristine. Apart from the excellent NEW Blu-ray, the set also contains a state-of-the-art DVD copy as well as all the "extras" that were included in previous special editions - which means you can safely replace any previous versions. In addition to which there are a number of enticing new extras. A long-overdue documentary on "Michael Curtiz - The Greatest Director You've Never
Heard Of." This is supported by other documentaries on "The Brothers Warner," "Jack Warner - The Last Mogul" and the four-hour documentary series "You Must Remember This- The Warner Brothers Story" narrated by Clint Eastwood PLUS a whole variety of trailers and shorts. As if that weren't enough, you get an elaborate 64-page hardback book containing never-before published photos and memos on the background of the making of "Casablanca" PLUS a French poster
( suitable for framing) and a very stylish pack of four table coasters relating to the different cafes and establishments featured in the film.

What it all boils down to is that THIS is absolutely the ULTIMATE EDITION OF THE ULTIMATE CULT FILM and, as such, deserves a place in any interesting collection. I should add that this is a Limited Edition of only 80,000 copies. So if you want it, better hurry - because when it's gone, it's gone.

I'm not going to go into the details and subplots of Casablanca, plenty of people have done that already, my review is purely on this special anniversary edition and restoration set of Casablanca which is available as a Blue-ray + Ultraviolet copy and comes in a Steelbook case, which has the film poster inked on the surface and looks pretty cool.

The tonal quality and overall crispness of the print is absolutely first-class, in fact it looks as if it could have just been made and not sixty years ago! It's so fresh and exciting to watch and the audio has been cleaned up so although still a mono soundtrack, it still comes through just fine.

My only gripe is that their is no accompanying booklet inside the case, which i would have expected with it being a pivotal anniversary release. The "Master of Cinema" series spoil us with these booklets which are always well made and of high quality, forr many of their releases, which detail the history of a given film, the actors and production crew, as well as other general ephemera.

This is a region free disc, so you can play it in any blu-ray player you have at home, which is a nice touch.

Still i give four stars, one being deducted for the lack of booklet.
