Literatura y Cine


A menudo hablo de cine en este blog, que es fundamentalmente literario y lingüístico. Ya he comentado alguna vez, creo, que el cine ha suplido en parte las funciones sociales que tuvieron en su tiempo los cantos de rapsodas, de juglares, las lecturas del mester de clerecía a la luz del fuego; las representaciones teatrales en los corrales barrocos, etc. ¿Puede seguir ofreciendo la literatura algo más, algo inherente a ella que no pueda ofrecer ningún otro arte? La fotografía ofrece imágenes, el cine las pone en movimiento, añadiendo música y otros sonidos, y, además, palabras y filosofía. Yo creo haber encontrado la respuesta, por ejemplo, en Borges (J. L. Borges sirve para tantas cosas).

En el libro El Aleph, en concreto en el relato que da nombre al mismo, Borges contempla un aleph: un punto en el espacio que contiene la visión del universo entero. Va describiendo en una ráfaga muchas de las cosas que ve: objetos, animales, palabras, acciones, estrellas; en un momento determinado, Borges declara que te ve.

Casi cada vez que releo el relato, produce en mí la misma sensación de asombro, como si me cogiera por sorpresa. Está contemplando el universo, y en un momento dado, en esa contemplación ve al lector leyendo su relato. Y siempre siento que me está viendo a mí, a Elías, leyendo una edición en rústica de El Aleph, sentado en mi cuarto, con la persiana medio echada.

Hay películas en que un personaje (o un narrador) se dirige al espectador de una manera u otra. El efecto puede estar conseguido, si el director es hábil. Puede producir efectos inteligentes y bien tramados: el cine posee poderosas herramientas, y es un arte que adoro casi al mismo nivel que a la literatura. Pero, hasta ahora, ninguna película ha producido en mí el efecto que produjo - y produce aún - El Aleph: la sensación de que, de repente, el libro se convierte en un espejo y un cristal al mismo tiempo; de estar viendo tu cara a través de los ojos de Borges; de, en definitiva, estar siendo parte de algo realmente formidable.
