Did You Know?


Casting the little known actors of Moroccan origin was done prior to finishing the script, as the producers weren't sure they would find enough talent. The casting process took well over a year. See more »

Female for 'watching TV on the couch' is not ''standing in the kitchen'!
6 June 2005 | by annelies_vervoortSee all my reviews

Kassablanka is probably one of those Belgian movies that goes almost unnoticed and thus misses a lot of the credit it deserves. Besides having a clear social message, this movie is also a good watch because of the acting, the humor and the ingenious way in which the resemblance between the Fawzi and the Van Loock families are shown (an element which you might not notice upon first viewing). Though most of the cast had never acted before, their performances are credible - when their characters are over the top, and most of them are, this has been a clear choice by the directors and serves the whole of the movie very well. The story may not be the most original - even Shakespeare wasn't very original with his Romeo and Juliet - but is an acceptable frame on which the rest of the film is built. A must see for its social message, and just for fun!
