Silence, el sueño de Scorsese

Por Fernando Palacio

Martin Scorsese, figura relevante de la cinematografía por joyas como Cape Fear, Taxi Driver, y  The Last Temptation of Christ. Por fin ha sacado del sótano uno de sus proyectos más ambiciosos S i l e n c e.

Proyecto a quien confió al productor mexicano, Gastón Pavlovich. Personalidad que se acercó a esta producción debido a su trabajo en A Hologram of the King con el actor Tom Hanks.

Convirtiéndose en un proyecto con muchas expectativas desde el inicio, tanto para Martin por ser un proyecto idealizado desde hace 27 como para Pavlovich por tratarse de una oportunidad para proyectos de misma relevancia, aunque de fracasar significaría no volver a trabajar en Hollywood para este productor según el abogado de Scorsese.

Martin es un director reconocido por crear películas con excelente argumento en su narrativa y lenguaje audiovisual, sin embargo fue perdiendo su esencia innovadora que lo colocó en el sitio que hoy ocupa.

Casos particulares como The Departed y The wolf of wall street. Que si bien son excelentes películas con argumento propio,  son una formula repetitiva de sí mismo, dejando de la lado su creatividad por un estilo de filmación que se convierte en una producción fabricada en serie.

Dentro del reparto se encuentran Liam Neeson (The Schindler´s List), Andrew Garfield (The Spider Man) y Adam Driver (Star Wars) en una historia cuyo argumento basada en la novela de Shusaku Endo, que nos habla de la persecución de los jesuitas portugueses cuando intentaban evangelizar en las zonas más remotas de Japón durante el siglo XVII.

Encontrándonos con una propuesta interesante y conociendo el estilo de Scorsese, es posible encontrarnos con una cinta que difícilmente decepcionará pero al tratarse de un proyecto que fuera guardado por tantos años, esperamos una posible obra maestra como otras cintas como Casino.

Se inició el rodaje en Taiwan con percances importantes como la muerte de uno de los trabajadores, este hecho no repercutirá en la disolución del proyecto. Sin embargo tomando en cuenta todos los elementos que rodean su proyecto, nos damos cuenta que el sueño de Scorsese será un reto de principio.

Chinese cuisine
