Lazhar y el espejo

Aunque este modesto blog lleve por título CineAnd…Política, aquí las promesas se cumplen, de manera que como les prometí, alternaremos comentarios sobre películas consagradas en las que Cine y Política se funden, con otros sobre cintas (¿dije cintas? ¿aún queda alguien que diga cintas?, ay, que me estoy haciendo mayor…) más actuales. Hoy les traigo, aunque de política apenas tenga el trasfondo, una película canadiense, ‘Profesor Lazhar’. Por aquí la ficha técnica, por aquí un tráiler en v.o. y en español. C’est facile, n’est-ce pas?

En ‘Profesor Lazhar’, guionista y director, (son el mismo: Philippe Falardeau), pisan el campo minado de los sentimientos, un drama que nace entre las cuatro paredes de un aula de primaria, el abono perfecto para los efectos lacrimógenos, para un remake de Rebelión en las Aulas’, o para una reedición infantil de La clase. Pero no, todo lo contrario: se trata de una historia diferente, sutil, bien narrada (vale, algo lenta: cuánta prisa siempre, dónde iremos siempre corriendo…), en el que dos tragedias atraviesan el tiempo y la vida de nuestro protagonista, encarnado por un polifacético actorazo, Mohamed Felag, que todo lo hace fácil. Dos tragedias, sí: una de origen político, en la Argelia natal del profesor Lazhar (y del propio Felag) y otra tragedia simplemente humana que impacta en la vida de los niños. Qué difícil debe ser dirigir a niños y qué bien lo hace este Falardeau, estudiante por cierto de Ciencias Políticas antes de dedicarse al cine (los caminos del Señor son inescrutables, pero en este caso le alabo el gusto).

 Llovía afuera de la Alhondiga bilbaína donde vi la película (a veces huele a palomitas durante los congresos que se celebran una planta más arriba) y aunque las primeras escenas son de nieve y la trama se desarrolla durante un frío invierno, hay una calidez contenida en cada metro, una voluntad de autenticidad, un acierto en reflejar los miedos del ser humano (a la muerte, al rechazo, al dolor, a la culpa, a la ausencia) que atrapan al espectador desde el primer momento. No hay bombas emocionales, ni demagogia en el manejo de los sentimientos, que discurren por cauces auténticos que dicen mucho, y bien, de la sinceridad de la película y sus autores.

 ¿Y Política? Ah, sí, la política… Pues sí, como señalaba antes hay Política en el trasfondo del film. El protagonista es un inmigrante, más bien habría que decir exiliado (pero dejemos que esto lo aclare la policía quebecquesa…), que, como tantas veces sucede en la vida, buscando una salida encuentra sin embargo otra: inesperada, dolorosa y a la vez emotiva y esperanzadora como un sentido abrazo de despedida. Todo el dolor se concentra en una fotografía de seres queridos –y seres perdidos— observada desde una tristeza que no se muestra pero se intuye infinita. Todo el miedo se adensa en una mirada durante una visita a comisaría. Miedo, tristeza, dolor son sentimientos humanos pero también muchas veces, aquí desde luego, la expresión de la Política como violencia, de la Política como enfrentamiento, de la Política como discriminación, de la Política como motor del exilio o el destierro.

Sí, en ‘Profesor Lazhar’ la política se dibuja como un escenario del pasado no tan remoto, un pasado cruel que golpea a nuestro Profesor en lo más hondo, una herida, que, sin embargo, él no sólo ha de sobrellevar durante el resto de sus días sino que debe mostrar ante la mirada escéptica de quien sólo ve en él a un argelino cincuentón sospechoso de querer quedarse a vivir en Quebec. Así es a veces la Política (migratoria) y así es el espejo que ya podemos imaginar qué imagen nos devuelve de nosotros mismos y de cómo tratamos a los que absurdamente consideramos los otros.

  34. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  35. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
