“Medianoche en París”, o las pinceladas románticas de Woody Allen

midnight_in_paris_medianoche_en_parisParís de noche es mágica. Una ciudad de destellos y galantería que se desborda. Un albedrío que nace y se consume en sus burdeles, restaurantes y cafés. La Ciudad Luz, soñadora, rosa, chillona y malcriada. El nido de la Belle Époque, el Surrealismo y la Nouvelle Vague. Donde el arte cobra vida propia. Donde lo imposible gana consistencia y se materializa en un filme fresco, travieso y fantástico.

Woody Allen presenta su más reciente película, Medianoche en París. La historia se desenvuelve en aquella ciudad durante un viaje familiar: Inez (Rachel McAdams), sus padres y  su prometido, Gil (Owen Wilson). Frustrado por su vida mediocre y su carrera de escritor clasemediero de Hollywood, Gil sale a tomar el aire francés todas las noches para obtener la inspiración no encontrada.

En un momento de osadía turística e impulsado por el deseo de escapar de la abrumadora presencia del pedante y sabelotodo Paul (Michael Sheen), Gil emprende el camino de regreso a su hotel sin saber con certeza la ruta adecuada. Perdido a las afueras de una iglesia, la campana repica y anuncia la medianoche. Frente a Gil, un auto de los años 20’s se estaciona; desde el interior, lo invitan a subir.

A partir de ese momento, vivirá un viaje constante entre las dimensiones Presente y Pasado, donde conocerá el éxtasis de la Bella Época, de los pintores más importantes de aquel tiempo y con la música y ambientación de una década romántica.  Picasso, Dalí, Buñuel, Fitzgerald, Hemingway y otros iconos del arte de los 20’s le demostrarán a Gil que la percepción positivista del Progreso y la idea de que “otros tiempos fueron mejores que los actuales” no es más que una forma errónea de esquivar los reveses del mundo.

La destreza del guión y el humor impregnado en los diálogos logran que la película nunca pierda su ritmo. El talento de Woody Allen es indiscutible, como también lo es la habilidad con que plasma cada personaje y consigue vincularlos en un espacio de ironías y sarcasmos. Y aunque la mezcla de géneros dramático y fantástico pudieran parecer, en un primer vistazo, un experimento riesgoso para la trama, lo cierto es que consigue salir bien librado por la calidad de las actuaciones.

Una vez más, el mayor atino de Allen radica en la selección del elenco. Owen Wilson consigue rayar en lo casi perfecto, con una decorosa interpretación del estereotipo americano que aspira a lo romántico europeo. Marion Cotillard roba cámara como Adriana, la amante de Picasso, y se convierte en el típico rostro de la hermosa mujer francesa.

Woody Allen es así. No pierde tiempo en explicar por qué Gil puede viajar en el tiempo, ni tampoco duda en recurrir, nuevamente, a su gastado recurso de la pareja disfuncional que termina siendo infiel. Tampoco siente pena en mostrar su admiración por las calles parisinas, ni por sus pintores y escritores favoritos.  No tiene mesura: los arroja todos a la vez, casi a punto de convertir su filme en un carnaval de referentes culturales.

Aunque no consigue superar la destreza y comicidad de su filme anterior, Así pasa cuando sucede (Whatever works, 2009), Allen deja un agradable sabor de boca, tan dulce y tranquilo como el ambiente de su filme. A modo de reflexión, invita al público a emprender el viaje mágico al interior de los sueños y las ambiciones. Invita al reencuentro, a redescubrirse, a defender los principios y la imaginación.  A aceptar que el presente no es ni más bueno ni más malo que el pasado: hay que aceptar que todo llega cuando tiene que llegar.
