The recognizable quote from film Casablanca

The movie Casablanca has a very high rating on imdb: 8.5/10. This movie recognized as a classic of the genre.

Some quotes from this movie are complicated for English learners. For example this phrase from protagonist Rick "Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine." The sentence means that she might have chosen from any number of pubs, but she entered mine. Or maybe she was just hanging around the city looking for someplace and by chance, she ended up in mine.

Rick was disappointed when the woman who he loved very much came to the city Casablanca. This random meeting hurt his feelings and he asked the rhetorical question why it had happened that "Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine."

Just after watching this movie I visited Casablanca - not in reality but in a virtual world represented by a great resource

We had an English class there with the teacher Daria from online school

We walked through a beautifully made Moroccan street to the place where the most scenes of the movie were captured: Rick's Cafe Americain.

When we were sitting on the chairs inside the virtual cafe, we shared admiration of the famous song "As time goes by"
"You must remember this
A kiss is just a kiss
A sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by"

Somebody, who likes this movie, dedicated a lot of time for sharing his or her love with others creating this fabulous place in virtual world

Here is the link to the video about the place where we had a class:
