“Hemel”, la exigencia de la sangre [GIFF 2012]

©2012 Circe Films

Guanajuato, Gto.- «Niña frágil, absurda, tímida y descarada, exasperante, imposible, exigente y débil, sorprendente siempre y desesperadamente independiente, inasible, tan difícil de penetrar y tan desequilibrada, y a veces, también tan tonta, empeñada en vivir en una edad irrecuperable y tratando siempre de cambiar el sentido de sus actos, hablando todo el tiempo sin decir nada y con una mirada que de pronto parecía abarcarlo todo.»

Esta descripción de Cecilia de “Tajimara”, uno de los personajes más entrañables del escritor mexicano Juan García Ponce, parece describir a la protagonista de Hemel, filme holandés dirigido por Sacha Polak, parte de la terna que concursa en la categoría Ópera Prima Internacional del Festival Internacional de Cine de Guanajuato 2012 (GIFF).

Hemel —palabra que en holandés significa “cielo”— es una muchacha delgada, bella como un ángel, que podría declararse víctima de eso que Jung describe como “complejo de Electra”, es decir, una clase de amor desmedido de hija a padre.

Huérfana de madre desde la infancia, a sus casi tres décadas de edad, Hemel (interpretada por la actriz Hannah Hoekstra) manifiesta un apego rayano en lo patológico. Se siente la mujer de la vida de Gijs (Hans Dagelet), su padre, hombre maduro, con un don especial para atraer mujeres.

Con una atmósfera semejante a la de Bleu (1993), de la trilogía “Tres Colores” del director polaco Krzysztof Kieslowski, aunque sin la densidad de la misma, Hemel es la exploración de una mujer que se siente incompleta, que busca la totalidad en el amor que caracteriza bajo el disfraz del sexo. Una interminable carrera por no caer en el vacío, un vacío en el que el padre es figura ideal, inalcanzable, siempre fugitiva.

El hecho de que Hemel ignore el origen e historia de su madre, y de que se sienta desplazada del centro de su propia vida que ella ubica en Gijs, añade a esta sutil primera cinta de la cineasta holandesa Sacha Polak un toque de ternura a la aversión que por instantes se experimenta hacia esta pareja de padre e hija. Un filme proveniente de Holanda, país invitado en la presente edición del Festival, filme sobre la soledad interior y la esperanza, esa vida cada vez más común.
