私の中のあなた and カミノ: two movies, two ideologies

In the line of American-family-fighting-an-illness drama, “My sister’s keeper” has all the ingredients of a two-hour emotional waterfall of tears: the teenage girl with cancer, the always together family struggling for her well-being, a first-love story, a cheerful and selfless younger sister, a decision in court, etc. But what interested me most about this movie is the film narrative used to tell us the story. The timeline goes forward and backwards, clears and darkens the plot alternatively; the narrators change constantly, from the sick girl to the sister to the father. Only the mother, convincingly played by Cameron Diaz, and the quiet and mysterious brother are out of that voice game, although the camera focalizes on them, instead, letting us see through their wet eyes. Music is quite good, with American alternative rock, and, in spite of the topic, there is a general feeling of optimism; my favourite actor, Alec Baldwin, of course.
“Camino”, a Spanish movie that has been awarded with most of the Goya Film Awards in 2009, deals with a similar theme, but from a slightly different point of view and tone, mixing also illness, family and first-love experiences, but including a masterly story of religion excesses and hypocrisy that leaves the audience with an unease sensation, far from a Hollywood “happy” ending. This movie also plays with time and space, and polysemous words like “obra” or “camino” help to transfer from one side to the other. For me, it’s a 10 out of 10.

アメリカの┌私の中のあなた┘とスペインの┌カミノ┘という二つの映画のトピックは同じですけど雰囲気とメッセージは違います。一所懸命病人の娘を治すたのアメリカの家族は明るく生活を応じて個人的に問題について決定する。ついに、あの個人主義は互いに対決されるがハリウッドの映画ですから幸せ結末で終わる。予測できる映画けど、ナレーションの技術は素晴らしいだと思います。
一方ではスペインの映画で宗教の不節制のせいでは家族はなぜか壊れてしまう。カミノもという女主人公はNerea Camacho若い女優に見事に役を演じられる。病気で停止したカミノの初恋の物語も観客に自然に感動される。この映画は傑作だから確かに今年のスペインのゴヤという賞をたくさんもらいました。
