“De Roma con amor”, o la nueva caída de Woody Allen

© 2012 - Sony Pictures Classics

Seis historias. Una ciudad. Una misma farsa en la que el absurdo se convierte en máxime. La nueva película de Woody Allen, De Roma con amor, puede leerse como la continuación de sus últimas cintas en una suerte de homenaje a la bella Europa. Ya lo hizo con Barcelona y con París, ahora remata con las calles del antiguo imperio.

De Roma con amor plantea de nuevo los viejos idilios amorosos, infidelidades, dilemas morales, el deber ser frente al querer. Como lo anuncia el título, las múltiples aventuras ocurren en las calles de la ciudad italiana, entre fuentes y edificios de mármol blanco, jardines vivos al lado de cafeterías elegantes y un elenco de gente guapa para no desentonar con los paisajes como de tarjeta postal.

Los personajes corren de manera independiente, sin enredarse, pero sí se complementan, se fortalecen junto al otro: Roberto Beningni interpreta a un hombre que de la noche a la mañana, de forma inexplicable, se transforma en una celebridad; el personaje de Jesse Eisenberg juega las de un estudiante de arquitectura que se enamora del personaje de Ellen Page, la amiga coqueta de su novia. Por otro lado, una pareja de recién casados vive una repentina separación, en la que él se involucra con una prostituta interpretada or Penélope Cruz, sensual como ninguna, mientras que la esposa cae en la tentación de enrollarse con un criminal.

Aparentemente compleja, la historia es en realidad demasiado sencilla: las dos horas de película pudieron resumirse a la mitad. La trama promete giros vertiginosos, los espectadores esperan un brinco en la historia, pero todo queda en esperanza frustrada. El humor, más que agrio, sabe a fermento, un reciclaje de fórmulas ya vistas desde aquella lejana Manhattan (1979), joya de la corona de Woody Allen.

Ir a la sala de cine para ver De roma con amor es asistir a una nueva caída del director estadunidense.  La pobreza del argumento y la debilidad de las actuaciones, pese a que el reparto incluye a personas multipremiadas, producen un coro de bostezos en las butacas frente a la pantalla.

Una de las posibles causas de este fracaso en la carrera de Woody Allen es su afición por lanzar películas cada año, como si de hornear pan se tratara. Las ideas surgen, pero deben trabajarse, pulirse con tiempo y esmero, cosa faltante. Lo que vemos en De Roma con amor es un director que todavía no logra quitarse las ideas de su cinta pasada, Medianoche en París (2011), aunque con más infortunios que chistes para la audiencia.

El personaje de Roberto Benigni no tiene razón de ser en la película, rompe con la narración de los otros personajes. El rol de Penélope Cruz, oscareada en Vicky, Cristina, Barcelona (2009), ahora quedó reducida a vil prostituta sin más gracia que enseñar los pechos. Ya ni hablar de la mísera actuación de Jesse Eisenberg, corto como ninguno al lado de sus compañeros de elenco.

A todo lo anterior se suman los errores técnicos: una edición poco ingeniosa, poco gloriosa a comparación de cintas pasadas; una banda sonora queriendo reventar, pero que apenas destaca perdida entre la fortaleza de las imágenes, y algunos descuidos nada mínimos, como el reciclaje de extras en repetidas ocasiones, incluso con la misma ropa en todas ellas.

En pocas palabras, la película es tibia en todos los sentidos y direcciones. De sus tiempos mozos arrastra las fórmulas que de tanto usarse ya no funcionan, salvo para aquellos nuevos seguidores y los muy fanáticos. Ya no causa las risas de antes, ni siquiera marea con su bagaje cultural mostrado en Medianoche en París, ni con la intriga fascinante de Match Point (2005).

Ahora se ve a un Woody Allen cansado, sin nuevas ideas para mostrar. Un director repetitivo, predecible, abrumador en la peor de sus formas. Lo único aplaudible es su perseverancia, la fortaleza para seguir tras las cámaras con la misma congruencia de siempre. Parece ser que hay Woody para rato, y pese a que continuará por el mismo camino, también seguiremos sus admiradores comprando boletos para cada uno de sus estrenos.
