This movie never gets old. One of the movies that I own, and I don't own a lot of them. I watched it in class today. A bit of a shame when you consider how much each hour is costing me, but let's talk the movie.
After doing film school for this short bit it's been changing the way I look and watch movies. What I noticed about watching this movie at this time is no matter how much I tried, I had a hard time analyzing this. I get really drawn into this story. I don't think much of Michael Curtiz as a director, and I think that this movie is a success because of the acting and the writing. The characters are so recognizable but personal and unique.
I still can't get over the scene where they have the dueling anthems between the French and the Germans. Something about that scene gets me every time. The room always gets a little dusty.
I'm trying to think of another serendipity movie. A movie that comes out of nowhere and despite all the resources that go into it, it comes out unexpectedly spectacular. Awesome. Awesome.
