Las cinco obstrucciones de Von Trier

five obstructionsEn 1967 el director Jorgen Leth realizó un cortometraje titulado “El Humano Perfecto” (“Det perfekte menneske”, Dinamarca 1967), el cual presenta a un hombre y una mujer ambos denominados “el humano perfecto”; todo esto a la distancia mientras ellos se desenvuelven en un infinito cuarto blanco como si se tratara de especímenes en un zoológico .

Fascinado desde siempre por esto, Von Trier utilizó la obra de Leth para realizar un pequeño y fascinante experimento,  que terminaría acercando y revelando a la audiencia bastante sobre estas dos personas perfectas. Así ambos autores terminaron envueltos en un juego de gato y al ratón donde el único claro ganador es el espectador.

La premisa de The Five Osbtructions es simple, pero no por eso deja de ser  interesante. Von Trier reta al que considera el mejor director de la historia a rehacer “El humano perfecto” 5 veces, solo que con una condición: cada vez que sea filmado de nuevo, tendrá que lidiar con una obstrucción impuesta por el director de Dancer in the Dark, las cuales Leth tendrá que superar, todo esto presentado en forma de quasi documental.

Cierto es que esta obra es distinta de cualquier filme que Von Trier haya realizado; y es que a pesar de que no se le otorga ningún crédito sobre el filme, tanto Von Trier como Leth tiene el mismo grado de influencia en el resultado. Lejos de la misantropía, misoginía o demás calificativos que sus detractores le puedan otrogar, Von Trier (junto con Leth) entrega un producto que cualquier amante del cine puede disfrutar y que hará cambiar la percepción si no de su obra por lo menos del autor.

Lo que comienza como un simple reto, rápidamente se trastoca en un duelo de cineastas. Por cada obstrucción que Von Trier le impone a Leth, éste le saca la vuelta de maneras sumamente creativas y de esta manera termina por sobrepasar las expectativas de su admirador. Los resultados son siempre maravillosos, cada una de las 5 reinvenciones se sostiene por sí misma y a la vez conserva la escencia del cortometraje original que dicho sea de paso es fantástico y junto con la 5ta reinvención el mejor.

A pesar de esto, la mejor parte del filme es la relación entre los directores. Tomemos por ejemplo a VonTrier, quien aparenta siempre esperar el peor de los resultados y espera ver señales de desesperación por parte de Leth; es por esto que los retos del mismo son tan complicados. Von Trier tiene la certeza de que Leth podrá lograrlo, aún cuando no lo dice, pues la arrogancia se lo prohíbe, la confianza y el amor que siente por su director es palpable gracias a las sutilezas en el comportamiento del creador de Dogville.

Finalmente ambos se ve envueltos en el diábolico juego y el filme se trastoca en una carta de amor no solo hacia el cine, por el hecho de  todo lo que tiene que pasar Leth por amor al arte; sino de Von Trier hacia su director favorito (por lo mismo la última obstrucción resulta aún más resonante. Von Trier quiere probarnos porque ama el trabajo de este hombre y sobra decir que Leth no decepciona.
