  • Ilsa’s role
    When asked in an interview about Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman), the director, Micheal
    Curtiz said:
    “She is the nexus of power in the film. It is only with respect to her that Rick shows any vulnerability and humanity. There is a strength in her not to be underestimated. She doesn't just follow along. She comes to meet Rick at night, she does things, she transgresses some borders, and she shows her feelings. She might be the most honest of the film's characters. She is the fuel that drives the narrative forward, and she is worth it. I think the female aspect of the film is very strong, although she is almost the only woman in the film. Otherwise, the film portrays a very masculine universe.”
    Do his comments make you reconsider your reading of Ilsa? Give reasons.
