“Shopping” de Albiston y Sutherland [GIFF 2013]

“Shopping” (2013) de Mark Albiston y Louis Sutherland


Guanajuato, Gto.- Como parte del ciclo Opera Prima Internacional, se proyectó en el Auditorio del Estado el largometraje Shopping (Nueva Zelanda, 2013) de Mark Albiston y Louis Sutherland, cineastas que llevan trabajando juntos desde hace quince años, cuando se conocieron en su barrio natal, Raumati Beach.

Ambos directores han creado un filme en el que la tensión se mantiene en torno al enfrentamiento de las dos posibilidades que el joven Willie, hijo de un europeo y una samoana, puede elegir.

Nueva Zelanda, 1981. Muy poco se ha hablado de la situación que vivían los samoanos y otros nativos de Australia y las múltiples islas de esa región del mundo, en esa época.

Willie y Salomon son un par de hermanos que viven una situación complicada, con un padre blanco que les propina golpizas y una madre samoana que no logra defenderlos. Se hallan en medio de dos mundos sin poder pertenecer a ninguno totalmente. El retrato de estas contradicciones adquiere varios matices y lecturas. La herencia de dos culturas que parecen repelerse. Los juicios de un padre muy severo y violento. Y el elemento catalizador, Bennie.

Willie, el joven Samoano, conduce a toda velocidad sobre la playa, mientras Bennie, el líder de una pandilla de “Shoppers” (ladrones de tiendas) y a quien conoció recientemente, lo ve conduciendo su automóvil de carreras desde el asiento del copiloto. El carismático ladrón lo ha apadrinado, lo cual supone un rompimiento con su padre.

El mayor logro de la película es contar una historia sin detenerse. Es una historia con elementos muy bien logrados, como los diálogos y los personajes. El conflicto se presenta cuando tiene que elegir entre sus dos vidas, la que le ofrece Bennie y la que tiene junto a su hermano Salomon, quien también es golpeado por su padre. Y a quien siente que debe defender.

Willie y Bennie son dos personajes memorables que se delinean en cada dialogo, cada gesto y respuesta. Mientras más se presiona al personaje principal, Willie, más cohesión y más carácter logra. Eso lo hace realmente memorable.

Que un adolescente se arroje sobre su padre a golpes para defender a su hermano menor requiere agallas, y que una película narre un acontecimiento de esta magnitud, sin caer un exceso de heroísmo, es digno de reconocimiento.
