Polanski, escarnio a la sociedad

Roman Polanski se ha caracterizado por dirigir películas en donde las verdades son ocultas y perversas. Lo mismo sucede con su última película ¿Sabes quién viene? (2011), adaptación homónima de la obra teatral Carnage, de la francesa Yasmina Reza.

La película comienza con una pelea, a golpes, entre dos niños compañeros de clases. Los padres del niño agredido, Penélope y Michael Longstreet (Jodie Foster y John C. Reilly) reciben en su domicilio a Nancy y Alan Cowen (Kate Winslet y Christopher Waltz), padres del niño agresor.

En la reunión los padres tratan de convencerse unos a otros sobre quién es la víctima y quién victimario. Entre disculpas, buenos tratos y comportamiento recatado —derivado de la reflexión sobre lo que debería ser—, la racionalidad de ambas parejas se comienza a desdibujar y las emociones afloran. Un té, un budín de frutas y unos whiskies.

Cualquiera que sea el género que Polanski dirija o escriba, la cinta nos lleva a una premisa básica, heredada de los años sesenta y setenta: ¿Quiénes son realmente los personajes? Desde Cul de sac (1966) y El bebé de Rosemary (1968), hasta Chinatown (1974) y El escritor fantasma (2010), los personajes de Polanski son una dualidad, y dentro de esa dualidad Polanski les inserta emociones tan humanas y tan contradictorias, que crean, por ende, doble conflicto.

Uno de los méritos de Polanski, en esta película, fue adaptar el lenguaje teatral al lenguaje cinematográfico, logrando así rodar una película en tiempo real, sin elipsis de tiempo, y eliminando el tedio para el espectador, pues lo único que vemos son cuatro personajes y un extra: los escenarios, la sala, el baño, el pasillo del departamento.

Otros grandes aciertos del filme: el dinamismo e ingenio del guión; los actores, que interiorizan el temperamento de sus personajes con una serie de desmentidos, que —costumbre en Polanski— no nos deja definirlos de una manera simple, con valores ambiguos, como el clásico Jack Nicholson en Chinatown o Ewan Mcgregor en El Escritor fantasma.

Es tal el escarnio que hace Polanski de la doble moral que no queda de otra más que reírse ante lo inevitable, la insoportable levedad del ser, plasmada magníficamente en ¿Sabes quién viene?, espléndida sátira en donde el director se burla de la supuesta civilización de los seres humanos, de tal suerte que sus personajes, al querer hablar y aclarar las cosas como gente “decente” o “civilizada” son los instintos humanos, primitivos, los que terminan exponiendo su verdadero temperamento.

La película hace evidente el miedo que tenemos como seres humanos a aceptarnos. Total, siempre estamos maquillando lo que somos para agradar. No sé, quizás si supiéramos valorar lo que somos y respetar lo que son los demás, la vida no sería una sátira como la película de Roman Polanski. Sería una comedia de Billy Wilder.
