Renault Arrests Laszlo After Rick
3,414 wordsIn a disturbance downstairs in the darkened, closed cafe, Carl arrives with Victor, who has been wounded in the police raid on the Resistance meeting. After going to investigate from the upstairs balcony, Rick privately instructs Carl to take 'Miss Lund' to her hotel room through a side door so that Laszlo won't know of their meeting. As Carl sneaks Ilsa away, Rick engages Laszlo in a conversation and a drink to stall for time - and hears again of the Czech's firm belief in the 'good' of the Cau...
Ilsa Lund Laszlo To Rick
346 wordsLighting is used very effectively with contrast and saturation (opaques / hues ) throughout the film, from the angelic glow on Ilsa Lund Laszlo, to Rick Blaine's dark lighting used to emphasize his alcohol consumption. The spot lights can also be seen on the walls of the club as the Gestapo run about in the city. Creating a mood of uncomfortness and abandonment. Music is nostalgic, especially when Sam, the piano player, begins to play "As Time Goes By", and Rick frantically comes and tells him t...
Hero And Anti Hero In Casablanca Rick And Victor
835 wordsThe Hero and Anti-Hero in Casablanca Casablanca is a very popular classic in which the audience is enlightened with a colourful combination of characters. The two prominent characters in the film, Rick Blane and Victor Lazlo, have a unique role because they portray the anti-hero and hero. These two character traits are critical because they differentiate the two main characters in the film. But, even though the anti-hero, Rick Blane, and hero, Victor Lazlo, have very different character personas...
Rick Reaffirms His Love For Ilsa

An unusual love triangle forms with the two men's mutual love for the intermediary woman. Unlike...

Ilsa And Rick
575 wordsCasablanca was a very interesting film. The first time that I watched it, I really had no idea what was going on. I found it a little hard to follow. But, after the second time around, a good portion of the movie became very clear to me. The setting takes place in Casablanca, Morocco and in Paris, France. At first the movie takes place in December 1941 at Rick Blaine's saloon in Casablanca. Rick has to deal with some illegal visa papers that he was given, and he hides them in the piano. Rick's f...
Paris With Rick
668 wordsThe story happened during World War II. It shows how peoples lives were ruined by the Nazis. The effect that this movie had on me was not very great. As the time period that this movie was set in was during WWII, the movie is about a tragic romance and how people are trying to get out of Casablanca which is in Morocco which is in Africa (just in case you didn't know). No real details about WWII are given, except that the Nazi idiots were trying to rid the earth of the religions and races that th...
1,006 wordsHow do you measure the heroism of a man? The answer depends on the definition of heroism. At first glance, to define heroism appears rather easy, but is it? In recent decades, culture has blurred together the heroes of reality with scripted actors on a screen. More people look up to Tom Hanks for his role as a war hero than the 101st Airborne Division. So, what distinguishes the life of a true hero? A hero performs deeds of sacrificial and inspirational valor in situations that put him at risk i...
285 wordsIn my conclusion I thank rick is the hero, because he was the man that was in love with the woman that broke his heart but he still stuck by her side. Also Rick and Victor were both patriots from the U.S. Rick is also a hero because he was one of the big man in Casablanca. The movie, Casablanca, is a classic, voted among the top 100 movies ever made. The hero Rick, played by Humphrey Bogart, was voted the second most heroic character in movie history, second only to Attics Finch, played by the l...
