The Brad Pitt–Marion Cotillard sweeping romantic, spy thriller Allied, available on Digital HD today, begins as Pitt parachutes into the deserts of Morocco before heading into Casablanca, and finally moving on to London during World War II, making one of the big challenges of the film the fact that it takes place in worlds that no longer exist, and are increasingly challenging to re-create.
“The set design was very, very impressive,” Cotillard says in this exclusive video that takes a look at the work of production designer Gary Freeman, who transported audiences back in time to the ’40s. “They had a lot to do. There is a market and a café in Casablanca and I was so impressed to see all the details, even the smells were really amazing. We really believed, even though we were inside that we were outside in a street in Casablanca.”
