El camino de los sueños

El ultimo Elvis, Armando Bo

 por Santiago Gardinetti

Todos los prejuicios son malos y nos predisponen a una crítica positiva o negativa, a una postura ultra subjetiva (asumiendo claro que no existe tal cosa llamada objetividad), a una exploración profunda de defectos y virtudes de acuerdo a donde nos encolumnemos. Esta vez caí totalmente desnudo, sin la más mínima idea de lo que iba a ver. El título algo nos dice, está claro y algunos buenos augurios pueden influenciar, pero no, eran elogios que no me interesaban.

Las luces se apagaron y empezó el espectáculo. Plano secuencia con travelling por una escalera hasta una fiesta y un tipo vestido de Elvis, que no se parece en nada a Elvis, pero que tiene LA VOZ DE ELVIS (si, todo en mayúscula); así empieza una increíble carrera que te ata a la butaca y te llena hasta el final, cargada de todos esos elementos que tiene que tener una película.

Bo aúna cada uno de los conceptos  que hicieron grande a la historia del cine y los desparrama con precisión en ese lapso que pasó en un instante, y se quedó en mí retina casi por una semana.  Cada imagen del film carga con una poética profunda que se hilvana con la siguiente y en conjunto componen una armonía perfecta. Cada plano se encastra con el siguiente y construyen un hermoso edificio de luces y sombras. Cada sonido es preciso, prolijo y acompaña al relato, hasta que entra LA VOZ y te perfora el alma.

Párrafo aparte para Mc Inerny. Él es Carlos, es Elvis, es padre, ex marido, es un laburante, es un niño. Compone un personaje en el que cada alter ego se desarrolla con una calidad asombrosa para alguien que nunca participó de un proceso como este (no podría decir que nunca actuó). Margarita López o Lisa Marie es otro gran mérito de Bo. Es una niña/mujer que ama y comprende, que sufre y emociona. La relación entre ambos completa y enternece a cualquiera.

El final no es solo un final. La película termina, la pantalla se pone negra y los créditos empiezan a correr. Las luces se encienden de a poco y yo observo a los 50 (60?) de la sala hundidos en sus butacas, buscando alguna explicación. Poética, precisa, simple. Una conclusión magistral, de esas que desarma. Habrán sido 3 o 5 minutos, tal vez menos, sin embargo pareció una eternidad en la que nos quedamos mirando como corrían los nombres, la misma eternidad en la que atesoraré ese plano en el que Lisa duerme y Carlos/ELVIS le canta suave.

Trailer oficial


Carlos Gutiérrez (Elvis) es un cantante separado que tiene una pequeña hija llamada Lisa Marie a la que no ve muy seguido. Siempre vivió su vida como si fuese la reencarnación de Elvis Presley. Negando a Carlos y su realidad. Pero está por cumplir los años que su ídolo tenía al morir y su futuro se muestra vacío. Una situación inesperada lo obliga a hacerse cargo de su hija. En esos días Carlos logra conocerse como padre y Lisa Marie aprende a aceptarlo tal cual es. Pero el destino le presenta una decisión difícil. En un viaje de locura y música Carlos deberá elegir entre su sueño de ser Elvis y su familia.
