Política, cócteles y mayúsculas

Escribir de algo a lo que casi todo el mundo con sensibilidad ama (el cine) en combinación con algo de lo que todo el mundo con sentido común recela (la política) tiene su aquel, no se crean. Y, sin embargo, aquí me tienen, en parte por mi mala cabeza y en parte por la generosidad de quienes impulsan este proyecto de película y a los que en estas primeras líneas tengo que dar las gracias por contar conmigo, Laura Ruiz Bernal, la fuerza hecha mujer y Francisco Pérez Gandul, Pacopérez, el padre de Malamadre, y no es un trabalenguas.

Aunque corran malos tiempos para la Política (ojo a la mayúscula, de la que se hace en minúsculas no encontrará aquí nada el navegante) y eso es responsabilidad de quienes la ejercen (me meteré en tal saco, aunque ya lo dejé atrás, afortunadamente), Política habrá siempre, con nosotros o sin nosotros y en este último caso ya sabemos que además será contra nosotros.

Sin embargo, hay otra Política con la que sí nos hemos sentido reconocidos, reconfortados, dignificados. Una Política que además ha dado metros gloriosos en la historia del cine. Si les apetece, a la vez que sigamos la actualidad cinematográfica relacionada con la política (confieso que me perdí ‘Los Idus de marzo’, habrá que arreglarlo), podremos ir recordando algunas de las películas o simplemente escenas en las que Cine y Política se tocaron, se fundieron y nos demostraron que cuando menos lo esperamos, el diablo se pone de nuestra parte (sí, es de una canción de Sabina).

Era un crío cuando me llevaron a ver Todos los Hombres del Presidente. Naturalmente, no salí de la sala queriendo ser político (garganta profunda, agg, ejem, ejem) sino queriendo ser periodista. Hasta ese mismo año (1976), no se estrenó en España una película rodada casi cuarenta años antes, ‘El Gran Dictador’. Apenas podía entenderla (si era de Charlot!!!!) hasta que pude verla y emocionarme con el discurso final, probablemente el más bello alegato por la cooperación y la paz que jamás haya encontrado cabida en el celuloide. Sí, pensándolo bien, y oyendo de nuevo aquellas palabras (¿hacemos una paradita ahora?), oyendo de nuevo que “la codicia ha envenenado el alma del hombre” (les suena, verdad, ¡cuánta actualidad!), tal vez nos encontremos con la Política hermosa, que hunde sus raíces en los mejores ideales del ser humano.

Con la Política en el Cine nos hemos reído con Ninozka, desternillado con el gran gran Josef Tura, estremecido con Schlinder, y hasta colado donde a los más poderosos ejércitos les llevó años hacerlo, permitiéndonos convertirnos en testigos de la historia.

El Cine nos ha traído, sí, muchas veces a la Política mezclada con el humor, con el horror, con el pasado reciente o con el remoto, con la vida de los otros o con la muerte del César. Para mí, sin embargo, ninguna combinación más explosiva que el cóctel de cine, política y ese gran motor de la historia que es el Amor. Para gustos están los colores, pero para mí no hay escena más arrebatadoramente política que una en la que solo se pronuncian cuatro palabras. Una escena en la que dos hombres miran con gesto preocupado a un grupo de uniformados que cantan desenfadadamente. Una escena en la que uno de ellos, llamado Viktor, cargado de certezas morales aunque arrastrando una vieja duda en el corazón, baja las escaleras con calma, cruza la sala ante la mirada atenta de su enamorada y resuelve la escena con esas cuatro palabras que dieron un giro a la guerra y a su historia de amor: “Toquen La Marsellesa. Tóquenla”.

A mí me toca poner el final de este primer post, cuya lectura les agradezco. Hay tanta de esa Política en el Cine, tantos ejemplos que nos emocionan, nos enseñan, nos zambullen en nuestra historia, que les confieso en este momento mi alegría por inaugurar con el resto de blogueros y con todos los navegantes que se asoman al otro lado del cristal este reto apasionante –sí, de película— que supone CineAndCine. ¡Acción!

100 pensamientos en “Política, cócteles y mayúsculas

  1. Personalmente, y como amante del cine, siempre es tiempo de una nueva revisión de “Todos los hombres del Presidente”, así como de “Sérpico”. Siendo, las suyas, esferas distintas, ambas cintas denuncian la corrupción política, siempre presente, pero desconocida para nosotros hasta la restauración de la democracia en los 70. Felicidades Enrique.

    • Gracias, Ramón, cualquiera diría que somos primos o algo así (aclaro que no, jeje). Me apunto lo de Sérpico y trataré también de ir acompasando películas de actualidad (ya tengo pensado el post de la semana que viene, con un estreno reciente) con cintas o simplemente escenas memorables. Por ejemplo, alguna de El enemigo a las Puertas. Gracias por leerme y por tus ánimos.

  2. Me gusta este blog! Yo estudié filologia hispánica (literatura) y crítica de cine en la uni. de Valladolid, así que la ficción es lo mío! Como la política me apasiona y la realidaad supera cualquier ficción imaginable, todo casa.
    Estoy en Alemania desde hace unos años; te he seguido por el facebook a través de mi hermana Isabel (yo soy Nuria Picky).
    Te agracederé que en facebook vayas colgando las entradas de este blog….

Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players.
