Buenas hierbas para el cine mexicano

TITULO

(Mex) La Cineteca Nacional se convirtió en la madrina de una de las propuestas cinematográficas más prometedoras del cine mexicano en esta temporada, que rompe con los viejos estereotipos del cine nacional enfocado en el sexo, las drogas y el albur, ofreciendo casi dos horas de trabajo extenuante bien logrado.

Las buenas hierbas, película que toca las fibras más delgadas del corazón, llega a las salas de cine después de casi cinco años de realización y producción. La directora María Novaro menciona que realizar esta película fue una labor extenuante de investigación y preparación documental, además de enfrentarse al recurrente problema presupuestario en la industria cinematográfica en México. “Hacer cine, con bajo presupuesto, creo que es una buena noticia: ojalá que el cine pudiera hacerse siempre con poco dinero”, mencionó ante la prensa.

Protagonizada por Ofelia Median, Úrsula Pruneda, Ana Ofelia Murguía y Miriam Balderas, el filme narra una gama de contrastes dentro de las vidas de sus protagonistas. La madre “chamana”, sabedora de hierbas y sus poderes curativos que traspasan el terreno sensorial para llegar al plano espiritual. La hija “moderna”, lejana a las costumbres herbolarias y adentrada en un mundo errante y de crítica política. La anciana deprimida, pero con alma de joven y que fuma cigarrillos, “de esos que dan risa”. La vecina incidental, que es testigo de las mil historias ocurridas en la azotea del edificio rodeado de ciudad.

En ella, convergen dos temáticas que a simple vista pudieran resultar incompatibles. Representar a una mujer toda sabiduría enfrentándose a la pérdida de la memoria, al tiempo que se entrelaza con uno de los rasgos característicos de la cultura mexicana: la herbolaria como medicina del cuerpo y del corazón.

Para obtener el realismo dentro del guión y de las imágenes y poder obtener veracidad en su narración, la directora se adentró en el terreno de la herbolaria, investigando sobre sus nombres y propiedades medicinales, filmando en el Jardín Botánico de la UNAM y con la imprescindible ayuda de una amiga bióloga y botánica. Caso similar a cuando se convirtió en “una maestra del baile” al realizar Danzón (1991), demostrando un compromiso y entrega completa a su trabajo.

Explica Novaro que la idea surgió a partir de experiencias personales. Por un lado, la relación con su madre, enferma de Alzheimer, la llevó  a enfrentarse -varios años después- con la cicatriz del recuerdo. “Es una enfermedad brutal, pero te confronta a descubrir quiénes somos”. Así, decidió realizar una película bastante personal, “un viaje muy íntimo, un viaje interior” y qué mejor que relacionarlo con la naturalidad del hogar, con su propio jardín y que al mismo la llevó a un proceso de sensibilización con la naturaleza.

Por otra parte, la actriz Ana Ofelia Murguía se encuentra fascinada por el papel que se le dio para la película, interpretando a una anciana perdida en el recuerdo, resentida con la vida y anhelando su muerte. “Con tendendencias pachecas”, menciona, la mujer lava ropa ajena, pero las circunstancias la llevan a convertirse en uno de los pilares fundamentales en la vida de Lala y Dalia, fungiendo como mediadora del dolor y del miedo, pero sin poder cuidarse de su propio pensamiento. “Una película redonda, de las mejores –si no es que la mejor- que tiene María. Hecha minuciosamente, con cariño y mucha entrega. Desde que leí el guión me encantó y dije que sí”, responde la actriz.

En la misma sintonía se encuentran las jóvenes Úrsula Pruneda y Miriam Balderas, quienes coinciden en que su participación en la película es un parteaguas en sus carreras profesionales y que el trabajo con María Novaro fue un proceso lleno de entrega y amor por parte de todos los involucrados.

Ganadora de ocho premios en el Festival de Cine de Guadalajara, incluyendo Premio del Público, Mejor Guión y Mejor Fotografía, se estrenará en octubre en el Festival de Roma pese a la poca distribución que en México se le dará, compitiendo con monstruos hollywoodenses que acaparan las salas y horarios del cine en el país.

Las buenas hierbas es el punto donde converge el olvido y el recuerdo, donde se cruzan el amor y la alegría, el miedo y el dolor, la vida y la propia muerte. Un viaje a través de las emociones derivadas de la enfermedad y de las frustraciones, enseñando que el destino gira y vuelve a donde nunca se esperaba. Un vaivén de soledades y añoranzas vagas, donde las buenas hierbas curarán el dolor del cuerpo y las heridas del alma.

En salas de cine a partir del viernes 20 de agosto. Consulta las carteleras correspondientes.
