Casablanca. 1942. USA. Directed by Michael Curtiz. 103 min.

Screenplay by Julius J. Epstein, Philip G. Epstein, Howard Koch, from an unproduced play by Joan Alison, Murray Burnett. With Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid, Claude Rains. “Casablanca is not a work of art, if such an expression still has any meaning...it is a hodgepodge of sensational scenes strung together implausibly, its characters are psychologically incredible, its actors act in a mannered way. Nevertheless, it is a great example of cinematic discourse, a palimpsest for future students of twentieth century religiosity, a paramount laboratory for semiotic research into textual strategies. Moreover, it has become a cult movie” (Umberto Eco). Digital restoration courtesy Warner Bros. Selected by Pia Lindström.
