Noche herida: El penoso transcurrir de los días

Orlando Mora

 

Al final de Noche herida un aviso le cuenta al espectador que la película forma parte de una trilogía de Nicolás Rincón Gille bajo el título de Campo hablado. La importancia de esa adscripción aparece mencionada en alguna entrevista con el director y la destacan varios de los críticos que se han ocupado de ella en distintos medios.

No he visto En lo escondido (2007)  y Los abrazos del río (2010), los otros dos títulos de la trilogía  y supongo que esa circunstancia afecta mi mirada de Noche herida. Lo digo porque no encuentro en la obra algunas de las cosas que en las reseñas referidas se destacan; no veo que en ella se responda a la pregunta “Qué pasa con la tradición popular del campo cuando la violencia viene a destruir completamente, no tanto la tradición sino a la gente”, que anuncia Marta Ligia Parra o lo de “El universo de la tradición oral campesina siempre me ha apasionado”, que menciona el realizador.

Lo que de entrada se encuentra en Noche herida es la lucha silenciosa, obstinada de una abuela por proteger a tres nietos de los peligros del ambiente.  Malviven hacinados en un rancho miserable en las afueras de Bogotá, con vecinos que comparten con ellos el drama del desplazamiento y la violencia. Blanca Rodríguez es la protagonista de la misma gesta heroica de miles de mujeres en Colombia, obligadas a llevar a hombros el día a día y la cotidianidad  de sus familias, con niños y adolescentes que terminarán casi con seguridad atrapados en las ruedas de un destino  que no les brinda salidas.

Rotulado como documental, hay en el trabajo de Nicolás Rincón algunos aspectos dignos de mención. El primero de ellos es la manera como está construido, con una dramaturgia y una puesta en escena que transitan terrenos habituales del cine de ficción. Si no fuera por los créditos finales que informan de la identidad de quienes hemos visto tratados como personajes, el público pudiera pensar que se trata de actores no profesionales en papeles inspirados en la realidad o seres reales interpretándose a ellos mismos.

Algo más intensifica la sensación de ficción y es el tipo de encuadre que se utiliza, con la cámara casi fija y colocada ligeramente en contrapicado (mirada de abajo hacia arriba), un tratamiento visual que por su rigor parece descartar la improvisación del registro. Igualmente los diálogos apuntan a un cuidadoso trabajo de preparación y presumiblemente a un guion que seleccionó escenas y momentos, con un armado que evita las líneas emocionales ascendentes y prefiere permanecer en la repetición de gestos y actos de la vida diaria de Blanca, sus nietos y su vecina.

Avanza también el documental en Colombia y que Noche herida llegue a las salas comerciales es un hecho a celebrar, junto a la revelación de un director interesado en búsquedas expresivas esperanzadoramente personales.

Un momento de amor: La pasión según Gabrielle
Orlando Mora

Con desgano evidente se estrenó en Medellín la película francesa Un momento de amor de Nicole Garcia. Una sola sala en la ciudad yhorarios limitados ciertos días, lo que da cuenta de la escasa fe que se tiene en sus posibilidades comerciales, a pesar de un antecedente llamativo como su selección para la competencia por la Palma de Oro en el festival de Cannes del 2016.
Nicole Garcia es una figura respetable de la cinematografía de su país. Actriz de teatro y cine desde finales de los años sesenta, en 1986 inició su carrera como directora, en un ejercicio de vocación compartida en el que poco a poco y a medida que pasan los años va ganando terreno su interés en la dirección.
Hasta donde logro recordar ahora su filmografía, Un momento deamor es tal vez su filme más ambicioso por el retrato impulsivo, intenso que ha querido dar de la protagonista, una mujer que desde su juventud revela un malestar vital, un desacomodo con sus circuns…
Hambre de poder: Un héroe americano

Orlando Mora

Nunca se insistirá bastante en el carácter socialmente realista del cine norteamericano. El público de ese país quiere ver en la pantalla y ya vueltos ficción hechos y acontecimientos de fuerte impacto general. Asesinatos colectivos, bombas terroristas, caídas de aviones, nuevas guerras, libros populares, actos de corrupción política, todos parecendestinados a convertirse en películas de futura y casi fatal realización.

Esa tendencia a hurgar en la realidad y construir los guiones a partir de ella se extiende también al pasado, con lo cual el aviso al comienzo de los filmes de estar inspirados en la realidad tiene el alcance de una especie de sello nacionalde garantía y despierta expectativas en cabal consonancia con el gusto de los espectadores.

Esa afición por el realismo ha nutrido de siempre el cine norteamericano y alimenta el exitoso presente de las series de televisión, convirtiendo en cada vez más porosas e indefinibles las fronter…
Mañana a esta hora: el rumor de la vida que pasa

Orlando Mora



En Colombia el dolor y el sufrimiento se suceden generados por la violencia absurda que estremece el día a día de la gente. El cine, arte raigalmente realista, tiende a encontrar en esos universos sus temáticas y en buena medida las películas nacionales privilegian historias terriblesde desplazados, de víctimas, de minorías oprimidas.

La urgencia de ese registro tiene un precio y es el olvido del drama cotidiano de hombres y mujeres que simplemente ejercen el oficio de vivir y que sobrellevan las penas del día a día, en una especie de heroicidad callada que se va quedando sin voz y sin eco.

Las palabras anteriores parecen necesarias a la hora de referirse a Mañana aesta hora, el segundo filme de la directora colombiana Lina Rodríguez, una obra entrañable, íntima, que por fortuna ha encontrado espacio en una cartelera comercial poca propicia para este tipo de material.
