Sueños perdidos



La visión de los exiliados, de aquellos que recibieron promesas rotas de una revolución que lleva más de cuarenta años oprimiendo a un pueblo, es la esencia de una producción que tardó mucho tiempo en poder levantar Andy García.

“The Lost City” narra los sucesos que acontecieron en Cuba durante los últimos años de la dictadura de Fulgencio Batista y la llegada al poder de los barbudos de Sierra Maestra, comandados por Fidel Castro y el “Che” Guevara.

La historia de todo un país es vista a través de una familia de clase media alta que representa a la sociedad de la época.

Fico Fellove (Andy García) es el propietario de El Trópico, uno de los locales más prestigiosos de La Habana.

Las terribles injusticias del régimen dictatorial de Fulgencio Batista propician rebeliones a lo largo de todo el país.

Los barbudos se concentran en la Sierra Maestra con el fin de llevar a cabo una lucha armada que derroque al gobierno vigente.

Los hombres de Batista asesinan a uno de los hermanos de Fico, Luis Fellove (Néstor Carbonell) quien se encontraba en franca oposición al régimen.

El hermano menor, Ricardo Fellove (Enrique Murciano) se une a los revolucionarios y se suicida al comprobar que la revolución en la cual creía es tan sólo una ilusión, una utopía que lleva a los hombres a cometer crímenes e injusticias mayores a las de sus predecesores.

Fico se ve obligado por las circunstancias a abandonar la tierra donde nació y a la mujer que ama, Aurora (Inés Sastre).

La cinta expone el tema de la crisis familiar de forma cruda.

La guerra entre hermanos, la separación entre padres e hijos, la rotura de la armonía hogareña, han sido trágicas frustraciones que marcaron desde su inicio el itinerario cruel de la revolución.

Andy García lo muestra en forma precisa.

En 1958 Cuba estaba en rebelión, no en revolución. Los cubanos esperaban un cambio político, no un cataclismo socio-económico y una catástrofe.

Si bien no es una cinta política, sin duda es el aspecto más llamativo.

Al tiempo que un grupo de directores hacen lo imposible por convencernos de cuán bondadosa es la revolución cubana y qué bien viven todos los cubanos, García prefiere dar un toque filosófico al tema preguntándose cómo es posible vivir bien en un país donde ni siquiera está permitido votar.

Eso sin contar el despojo y la violencia que acarreó y que sigue acarreando.

En un mundo dominado por el romanticismo de la revolución cubana, supone un respiro que un cineasta se atreva a retratar al “Che” Guevara como un iluminado maquiavélico, capaz de llevarse por delante a quien hiciera falta en nombre de ese concepto tan intangible y difuso como es la revolución, y no con el aire mesiánico, hacedor de milagros con el que se acostumbra a retratar iconográficamente, como por ejemplo en “Diarios de motocicleta”.

La película está rodada con un gusto estético indudable, enseñando una Cuba sofisticada y bella que mucho contrasta con la decadencia del país después de cuarenta años de revolución castrista.

La película ha recibido fuertes críticas por parte de la prensa pro castrista. Sin embargo, es importante recalcar que más allá del conflicto político se trata de una historia humana, basada en hechos reales.

El son cubano acompaña toda la producción y crea una atmósfera muy particular, de fiesta y de dolor a la vez.

Eses un tributo a la isla que vive anclada en el más salvaje de los comunismos.

Hay que enfatizar que la cinta no es un documental y no pretende reflejar los hechos ”tal y como ocurrieron”.

“The lost city” presenta una visión de lo ocurrido bajo la óptica de los que se fueron.

No es la única aproximación posible a los hechos, tampoco es la más válida, pero sí una perspectiva necesaria de la otra cara de la moneda.

With this final scene, Kingsolver reasserts the value
of family-however nontraditional it may be-as an essential and even life-saving support system for this diverse
group of characters, as well as for society in general.
If your family have remained close friends with your ex-boyfriend,
there will most likely still be home visits paid
to your family home from time to time. Although
the new Family law has become realistic and has taken the angst and long-drawn battles out of family disputes, yet if you
have family problems and you live in Aberdeen, Scotland you will need the help of Family
Lawyers & Divorce Solicitors Aberdeen to resolve the issues
in the4 best interest of all concerned.
