The American Film Institute ranked Casablanca first on its list of 100 greatest love stories of all time.
So what do you think? Does “We’ll always have Paris” make you sigh and swoon? Or does it make you say, “No, you idiot, don’t let her get on that plane!”
It certainly made me wonder. The ending to Casablanca is bittersweet. Would she have regretted staying, somewhere down the line? Guess we’ll never know, will we?
Casablanca’s a great film, yes, but it made me wonder why they chose that as the most romantic film of all time. The notion of “the one that got away”? Or because they’d fallen in love and shared some incredibly romantic moments?
What defines romance for you? Do you have to have a Happy Ever After? Or is Happy For Now enough? Do you view movies differently than books in that regard?
