Today is la Fete Nationale in France (Bastille Day).
There is a movie which captures the feelings of the French on this day. Casablanca. It was made early in the Second World War, when the Nazis tried to impose fascism on the world. A good Democratic Underground member posted a wonderful scene from Casablanca here three years ago: The scene from Casablanca with "La Marseillaise." I am an old woman, and I cannot seem to manage to do this. Maybe somebody else could manage it?
