Violines en el cielo: despedir la vida con notas de violonchelo

Layout 1Departures (Japón, 2008; cabe señalar que la cinta se estrenó en México el 8 de Enero de 2010 y aún continúa en la Cineteca Nacional ), en español Violines En El Cielo, es el intento del director japonés Yojito Takita por reconciliar a la vida con el “más allá”. La singularidad de la propuesta de Takita radica en la manera en que aborda el tema de la muerte: una trama amena, estética en la imagen, respeto, solemnidad, y notas de violonchelo; todo para despedir poéticamente el último hálito de la existencia.

La historia de la cinta se centra en las circunstancias de Daigo Kobayashi, joven destacado en el arte de la ejecución del violonchelo. Tras la desintegración de la orquesta sinfónica a la que pertenece, Kobayashi regresa a su pueblo natal en compañía de su esposa. Allí, encuentra en un diario una atractiva propuesta de trabajo. Por las descripciones del anuncio, él piensa que se trata de una agencia de viajes. Su sorpresa es grande cuando descubre que dicha oferta de empleo es en realidad para preparar cadáveres para el tránsito a su nueva existencia. Después de algunos inconvenientes, el violonchelista acepta la propuesta de convertirse en “el que envía”. A través de su reciente labor, Kobayashi se reconcilia con su pasado y aprende de la muerte a vivir lo mejor posible.

Departures (cuya traducción en inglés significa partidas; no tan disímil al título que se le puso en Japón, Okuribito, el que envía) fue galardonada con 10 estatuillas de la Academia Japonesa de Cine, y recibió el premio Oscar por mejor película extranjera en el 2009. Pese a sus logros, la cinta de Yojiro Takita presenta algunos defectos: ritmo lento en algunas partes del filme, una historia que se queda en segundo plano ante la belleza de la fotografía, y un final sumamente predecible.

Sin ser una majestuosa obra del cine oriental, Departures desempeña un buen papel a la hora de hacer reflexionar al espectador acerca de su fugaz existencia.
