|Ny kontroversiel Bernal-film|
Skrevet den 13/8-2002 af Pernille Flensted-Jensen
Det ser ud til, at den nyeste film med Gael García Bernal – der er aktuel med ...Og din mor! – vil vække en del furore, når den får premiere på fredag i Mexico.
Filmen hedder El Crimen del Padre Amaro ('Fader Amaros forbrydelse') og handler om en katolsk præst, der forelsker sig i en teenagepige. Filmen foregår i det moderne Mexico, hvor 90 % af befolkningen er katolikker.
En repræsentant for de mexicanske biskopper, Luis Morales, fordømmer filmen på forhånd og udtaler, at den gør grin med et af de helligste religiøse symboler i katolicismen, mens filmens stjerne, Gael García Bernal, mener, at folk burde se filmen, før de fordømmer den. Han mener, at en af årsagerne til furoren er, at det er 'en ærlig film'.
Filmen er instrueret af Carlos Carrera, hvis sidste film, Un Embrujo (1998) vandt adskillige mexicanske Ariel-priser. Ariel-prisen er den fornemste mexicanske filmpris.

| a0a0 This review is from: I grew up in Loma Linda, a University town with a mcdeial school. I never heard of anybody taking off on a motorcycle, even after graduation, for a journey like this. But Che Guevara was an exception to the rulers. The young (Everything he did was young he didn't live to see 40.) Ernesto Che Guevara, left the university & his life of privilege for seven months on the road, touring South America, first on a motorcycle, then as a vagabond, with his compadre Alberto.The two of them posed as Argentinian Doctors, specialists in the treatment of leprosy. This gained them food and lodging, as well as special treatment at times. It also gained them face-to-face experience with the impossible living conditions of people suffering from this disease.Alberto & Che traveled on their own resources. When money got tough, they scammed & stowed-away, sometimes even working for a meal, but they didn't cable home for money or assistance. During this experience, Che became personally acquainted with the poverty and disempowerment prevalent in South America. Reading the book was a delightful experience. Che has a poetic way with words. He doesn't take himself too seriously, telling tales of purloined wine, of scamming for sustenance, of bravely shooting a puma in the dark of night. By daylight it turned out to have been a local rancher's dog. He tells of hiding with a shipment of melons, hoping to stow away on a boat, but getting busted when sailors noticed melon rinds floating by the dock. Ernesto & Alberto were indeed a couple of scallywags, but loveable, the kind you'd sit down with for a stein of beer or a cup of mate.This book tells a human story, one that's unselfconscious enough to be truly enjoyable. Almost enough to make me want to sell the house, buy a motorcycle |
