Michael Curtiz, 1943


What is immediately evident in this film is the attention to detail in set design, lighting, sound & editing. Beautiful scenery such as the nightclub, or the opening scene in the Casablanca marketplace. The tricks they play with shadows is impressive, and of course the piano playing by Dooley Smith in the background greatly contributed to the romantic feel of the film. Humphrey Bogart is the epitome of cool. Ingrid Bergman is magnetic, and the love between them feels natural.
