Time of silence

Spain, 1986 (107 minutes). Director: Vicente Aranda. Interpreters: Imanol Arias, Victoria Abril, Paco Rabal, Charo López.

Vicente Aranda assumes an almost suicidal task: to translate the prose of Luis Martín Santos into images. Perhaps due to the extreme difficulty of the adaptation, the filmmaker turns his efforts into a meticulous reconstruction of the atmosphere of the 1950s and the drawing of desolate characters trapped by bitterness and the oppression of their surroundings. Time of silence it grows thanks to the dramatic power that the director throws in his images; also thanks to an immaculate cast.

Anyone who has not seen the series will be puzzled by what is nothing more than a longer and more bombastic chapter. But those who have been regulars will binge. It is about a reunion with some old friends who return as they left years ago: in the first five minutes of footage, the entire cast has already appeared. Cautious and meek, almost beatific, Downton Abbey overflows with pomp and circumstance and it is precisely in his bombastic voice that he finds his reason for being.

Paris, Texas

USA, 1984 (144 minutes). Director: Wim Wenders. Performers: Harry Dean Stanton, Dean Stockwell, Nastassja Kinski.

The seventies placed the German Wim Wenders as one of the references of modern cinema. He began the eighties with the tortured tribute to film noir that was The man from Chinatown and with a deep cinephile lament like The state of things. His next work, Paris, Texas, it marked a before and after in his career, which on few occasions will he reach such a category again. Wenders tells an existentialist and tragic road story that can only be resolved as a bitter tale of silent love, in which the characters speak with their eyes, orphans of words, amid images as dry and grim as the landscape that surrounds them.
