'''''Casablanca (Casablanca (film))''''' is a 1942 movie set during World War II in the Vichy (Vichy France)-controlled Moroccan (Morocco) city of Casablanca. The film was directed by Michael Curtiz, and stars Humphrey Bogart as Rick and Ingrid Bergman as Ilsa. It focuses on Rick's conflict between, in the words of one character, love and virtue: he must choose between his love for Ilsa and his need to do the right thing by helping her husband—Resistance (Resistance_movement#World_War_II) hero Victor Laszlo—to escape from Casablanca and continue his fight against the Nazis. The film was an immediate hit, and it has remained consistently popular ever since. Critic (Film_critic)s have praised the charismatic performances of Bogart and Bergman, the chemistry between the two leads, the depth of characterisation (Fictional_character), the taut direction (Film_director), the witty screenplay and the emotional impact of the work as a whole.
