After Sam (Dooley Wilson) plays "As Time Goes By," yet again, (in Casablanca, 1942) we find Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman) and Rick (Humphrey Bogart) talking about that special day in a special cafe in Paris:
Perhaps it is an inside joke or not, but in the new movie entitled Looper about time travel, (get it, "As Time Goes By"?), we find a cafe named La Belle Aurore. Also, there are overlapping themes of who is whom, and what is what between Casablanca and Looper.
Some folks on the Internet mistranslate La Belle Aurore as "the beautiful sunset." It appears that the more proper translation is "the beautiful dawn."
The name Aurora means "dawn." The Roman goddess of the dawn was named Aurora, and her siblings are Sol (Sun) and Luna (Moon). These names in Latin and Greek are Aurora/Eos, Sol/Helios, Luna/Selene.
(Needless to say, in La Belle Aurore we also find the power word "Bell," as well, which I have talked about here.)
This is a year in which the word Aurora (vis-a-vis The Dark Knight Rises shooting and Aurora copycats) is all too significant. It does appear to be synchrocinematically symbolic for this La Belle Aurore to reveal itself now in a time travel film.
Looper are presently on the Internet, courtesy of On Location Vacations. The futurist cars are shown outside La Belle Aurore.
