Lobo – En tierra hostil

Hoy no estaríamos hablando de esta película si la Academia no hubiera decidido incluirla entre las cinco películas de habla no inglesa candidatas al Óscar. En mi opinión, la pérdida sería bastante fácil de sobrellevar. Lobo fue presentada en la primera edición del Filmadrid, un festival nacido para buscar y enseñarnos cintas innovadoras en cualquiera de los terrenos posibles. Es bastante paradójico que esta cinta fuera incluida en su sección oficial, pues su clasicismo formal impide encontrar en ella rasgos diferenciales de peso para su elección. Por otro lado, igual de extraña fue su nominación a los Óscar, ya que los trabajos africanos que normalmente aparecen en las quinielas son mucho más sensacionalistas e incluso panfletarios. Que en Lobo hay cierta denuncia histórica está fuera de duda, pero el contexto está ahí para enriquecer a la historia de supervivencia y no al contrario.

Theeb 1

Lobo -Theeb en el título original- es un niño que vive con su tribu beduina en un rincón olvidado del Imperio Otomano. Tras la reciente muerte de su padre, es su hermano Hussein quien debe asumir la labor paterna. Mientras la Gran Guerra acontece en Europa, la tribu recibe la visita de un oficial del ejército británico y su guía, que se encuentran en una misión misteriosa, algo totalmente desconocido para un niño como Theeb. A su hermano Hussein le encomiendan la tarea de acompañarles a su destino, una serie de pozos de agua en la antigua ruta de peregrinación a La Meca. El conflicto surge cuando Theeb, temeroso de perder a su hermano y mentor, decide seguir su camino en un peligroso viaje a través del desierto de Arabia, plagado de hostilidades. Así se inicia un viaje de descubrimiento tras la inocente mirada de un niño incapaz de comprender qué hace un británico allí y por qué existe un enfrentamiento entre los mercenarios otomanos y los revolucionarios árabes. Como telón de fondo, el ferrocarril, cuyo sonido se apodera de algunas escenas de forma milagrosa, creando una sensación realmente turbadora.

Lobo recupera la esencia del cine clásico de aventuras, pero siguiendo los códigos del western y con ecos neorrealistas. La ópera prima de Naji Abu Nowar resulta satisfactoria en su atractiva mixtura de géneros, aunque el planteamiento y la ejecución de los momentos más animados y menos contemplativos desafíen la lógica interna de la narración. En ellos, los personajes de la película se comportan de manera similar a la inteligencia artificial de los rivales en el modo campaña de un shooter cualquiera. Yo, como espectador, soy incapaz de creerme escenas tan torpemente filmadas dentro de una historia en la que la mirada protagonista responde a la inocencia y naturalidad de un niño. El impacto de los primeros minutos de Theeb en tierra hostil se va diluyendo -aunque sin llegar a perderse en ningún momento- conforme avanza el metraje, donde se advierte de forma cada más evidente la pesadumbre del peor Kiarostami.

Theeb 2

Con más aciertos que errores, Lobo se constituye como un debut a tener en cuenta, aupado por los premios y nominaciones recibidos a lo largo y ancho del globo. Una cinta que homenajea al cine de aventuras clásico, siguiendo sus patrones y rodando en las mismas localizaciones que Lawrence de Arabia, el film de David Lean. Quizá se eche en falta un mayor aprovechamiento del intimismo que aporta la mirada infantil de Theeb, pero no podemos discutir que nos encontramos ante una clase de cine que bien podría ser recuperada. A caballo (o a camello) entre la autoría y la comercialidad, Abu Nowar consigue colocar su primer trabajo en nuestras carteleras.
