El Ilusionista



El encanto del siglo XIX radica en que combina las viejas creencias mágicas (irracionales) con las nuevas creencias científicas (racionales), que desde cierto ángulo también son “mágicas”, simplemente ya tienen explicaciones lógicas.

Antes del siglo XIX, el acto de crear vida se le atribuía a fuerzas paranormales.

A partir de este, el acto de crear vida ya se puede explicar de una manera pseudocientífica, por ejemplo, con la electricidad (como en el cuento de Frankenstein).

Me fascina la serie “League of Extraordinary gentleman” de Alan Moore justamente porque combina ese nuevo fervor en la ciencia –esa nueva religión que fundaron los científicos (qué ironía), una que tiene como punto focal la fe cuasiciega en el método científico– y en la magia de antaño.

La película (esa con Sean Connery) es una reverenda estupidez, pero en la novela gráfica lo mágico comulga con lo científico.

Pasa un poco de lo mismo en “Sleepy Hollow”.

Y esa es justamente la atmósfera del siglo XIX, el siglo XIX tardío que retrata “The Illusionist”, un nuevo filme sobre actos de magia, escepticismo, romanticismo y hasta intriga política.

La película es muy competente, tanto que quizá se vuelve un poco predecible.

La historia se desarrolla en Viena, donde encontramos al hábil mago Eisenheim (Edward Norton) asombrando con sus ilusiones y trucos a la alta sociedad, que incluye al Príncipe Leopold (Rufus Sewell) y a su prometida Sophie (Jessica Biel).

Lo que nadie sabe es que Eisenheim y Sophie tuvieron un intenso romance en su adolescencia, que ahora parece revivir gracias a su fortuito encuentro.

Pero el Príncipe empieza a sospechar y encarga al tenaz Inspector Uhl (Paul Giamatti) que investigue al mago para denunciarlo como farsante...

El realizador Neil Burger muestra mayor aptitud como director que como guionista.

La orquestación de escenas es elegante y fluida, y el desempeño que consigue de su elenco es casi perfecto, lo cual no es de extrañar cuando se cuenta con actores de la talla de Edward Norton y Paul Giamatti... pero incluso la joven Jessica Biel y el eterno villano Rufus Sewell muestran inusitada profundidad y control en la detallada interpretación de sus respectivos papeles.

No obstante, el guión (que el mismo Burger adaptó del cuento corto "Eisenheim el Ilusionista", de Steven Millhauser) falla en varios aspectos.

La estructura es un poco floja y el triángulo romántico carece de pasión y se siente obligado, especialmente cuando los amantes se encuentran en la edad adulta.

Pero el más grave problema es que el libreto pretende sorprendernos con una inesperada revelación final que muchos espectadores habrán ya adivinado desde la mitad de la película.

Creo que ese problema será irrelevante para muchos; después de todo, la combinación de actores (Giamatti huele a Oscar), dirección, cinematografía y música bastan para ofrecernos entretenimiento de buena calidad.

La banda sonora a cargo de Philip Glass complementa perfectamente la hermosa cinematografía, y los actores lucen esa magia adicional que aporta el talento real en manos de un competente director.

Podrá tener algunas fallas, pero a fin de cuentas “El Ilusionista” cumple su cometido y nos recuerda que, tanto en la magia como en el cine, la credulidad del espectador es esencial para tener una experiencia satisfactoria.

You never find fleshlight labels on the shower head and pointing it
