Last Tango in Paris

Sunday, 12 February, Year 4 d.Tr. | Author: Mircea Popescu

Yoyo :
Jerry: "He was not the summer you. Besides, you had a summer me. Whitey Fisk, the guy who snuck you into Last Tango in Paris."
George: "I made him up."
Jerry: "So you never saw Last Tango in Paris?"
George: "No."
Jerry: "Too bad. It was erotic."

Filmuli e un fel de duplicat al Chiriasului, de pe alte pozitii si-n alte perspective. Primele scene sunt absolut identice si chiar e o idee buna sa vedeti cele doua filme intr-o sesiune dubla, de preferinta asta ultimul. Apropo de care chestie, cum de exista "meseria" de DJ da' nu exista meseria de Dirijor de Film ? Asta din urma ar avea mai mult sens.

Si da, este erotic. V-am includ o galerie, pentru edificare, de jur in jur.

Partea unde fata se bate cu baiatul de-i este "logodnic" fix sub un poster urias pe care scrie "Adoucissant incorpore"ii e de tot hazul. Partea unde fata se pregateste s-o ia in fund (cu unt!) si declara ca nu i-i frica da' poate ca-s ceva secrete de familie acolo ? e de toata dulceata. Si-asa mai departe, se gasesc scene grandioase-n filigran in filmul asta cit sa va ajunga zece ore, poate chiar o zi intreaga.

Maria Schneider e o pustoaica de douazeci de ani abia impliniti in 1972 care nu stie sa plinga. E de inteles pina la urma, la virsta aia. Stie in schimb sa isi joace ingenuu ingenuitatea si autentic mirarea, recunosc femei reale-n jocul ei si deci putem spune ca-i talentata. Cinci ani mai tirziu urma sa joace Conchita in Obscure Object of Desire da' nu s-o inteles cu Bunuel pe teme filosofico-teoretice cit si "mars in bucatarie si fa-mi clatite" sau asa ceva. De fapt problema carierei ei fu asta, ca ea fiind usor lezbianca (spre rau de tot) si altfel destul de frumoasa, ba inca si mai grav un sex trophyiii.. mnoa. Lumea se astepta sa presteze. Ea n-o vrut sa presteze. Lumea atunci nu i-o dat roluri. Fin.

Brando e un fel de Bogart wannabe doar ca gheu si cu figuri de existentialism in cap. N-am idee daca exista actor mai prost in istoria filmului, nu in sensul ca nu joaca bine ci-n sensul propriu al acestui termen, e prost ca un lemn. Prin comparatie Stallone e un individ inteligent, un intelect rafinat, un subtil hermeneut al clarobscurului celuloid. Pe bune. Filmul asta era o minune cu Pacino, de exemplu, atit ca lui Pacino probabil nu-i dadea prin cap sa isi violeze partenera de filmari (scena cu untul... pai nu era-n scenariu, i-a venit asa spontan actorului, si fata zice ca de plins ea plinge pe bune).

In tot cazul, Ultimul Tango la Paris e, alaturi de Salo, unul dintre putinele filme care s-ar putea folosi cu succes pentru a explica tinerilor nelumiti cam care-i treaba cu chestia asta secreta de-o fac adultii si-i zic futai iubire si-amor, pardon. Evident sunt fix filmele pe care toata lumea le evita, da' daca voi aveti impresia ca ei inteleg ceva din prostioarele alea "documentare" care li se baga pe git acuma sau ca le servesc la ceva...

PS. Adulti ?! Dar asta-i teribil!

  1. Last Tango in Paris, 1972, de Bernardo Bertolucci, cu Marlon Brando si Maria Schneider []
  2. Indulcitor incorporat []
  3. Mai ales dupa filmul asta, despre care Esther Anderson, gagica lu' Brando la vremea ceea sustine c-a cam luat-o prin surprindere pe biata copila, in sensul ca scenele alea in care se plinge ca-i violata in film nu-s neaparat departe de realitatea experientelor actritei in raport cu filmul. Asa ca "Bertolucci is more of a gangster than a movie director. He's one of my enemies." []

  1. M-a facut curios articolul tau, dar in special imaginile si modul tau de a exprima. Vreau sa te felicit, putini sunt cei care fac ca tine. Poate colaboram si in viitor, un parteneriat ceva cu blog-urile mele.

    We tried to watch this thing in the harem last night ; and ended up turning it off halfawy (right in the middle of the double sink bathroom scene, if you can believe that).

    It is fucking boring. I swear to god, it bored us all to tears.

    Other than that sad fate of "scandalously out-there 1970s sexuality", let it be stated that coincidentally we watched Rebel Without a Cause right after, and the coincidence made something obvious.

    Did you realise before Mr. Walking Potatohead's enunciation is a straight up attempt at copying James Dean's manner of speaking ? Much like an entire generation of talentless hacks posing as starlets tried to do Bacall, so is this untalented zombie tryna do James Dean!

    And he doesn't get it, at all, at bloody all, either. Listen to the two side by side and see! It's fucking out there.

    PS. It turns out that the best way to wake up a bedpile of sluts (you know how some kids get a large pile of plushies ? yeah ? well, mine are live girls) is by teabagging and cockslapping them in the face. Try it sometime! It's fun!
