Hasta el último hombre – Los sábados, milagro

Hasta el último hombre, el último trabajo del siempre polémico Mel Gibson, que llevaba nada menos que diez años de sequía, cerca de las cámaras pero siempre delante de ellas, es una película que nace de una contradicción y se desarrolla mediante otras tantas. En esta ocasión, el criticado director de Braveheart ha decidido narrar la historia de Desmond Doss, un joven médico militar que participó en la Batalla de Okinawa en la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Sin embargo, esta no es la historia de un héroe o patriota cualquiera, como tantas nos han sido contadas a través del cine; es la historia de un objetor de conciencia que, a pesar de su naturaleza pacífica, marcada por una infancia difícil, está dispuesto a dar su vida por lo que según él mismo es el deber que Dios le impone: proteger a su nación. Como sus creencias le impiden empuñar un arma, cree que su lugar en el ejército se encuentra salvando vidas, cumpliendo así su vocación de médico. Si bien esta máxima no dista demasiado de las clásicas historias de héroes que lo dan todo por salvar a su patria, la búsqueda audiovisual y narrativa de Gibson no hace especial hincapié en la heroicidad de sus acciones, con la salvedad del preciso momento en el que, simplemente como resultado de los acontecimientos, las imágenes no pueden sino subvertir las expectativas de los combatientes e incluso las del espectador, donde -y aquí no podemos negar lo evidente-, esta vez sí, el director se recrea en la grandilocuente épica de un emocionante salto de fe.

Así, además de la contradicción surgida entre el carácter del protagonista y el contexto bélico de la historia, que nos brinda una extraña sucesión de imágenes violentas que logran impactar más de lo habitual, fruto de la empatía que sentimos con el humilde e inexorable Desmond; también apreciamos una aún mas evidente entre la primera hora de película y la segunda, que difieren significativamente en el fondo y en la forma, pero todavía más en el resultado. Mientras la segunda muestra lo que termina siendo el germen de la narración, la verdadera búsqueda de su creador, la primera está lastrada por una preocupante indefinición en el tono, a caballo entre la ranciedad clásica de determinado cine estadounidense y el artificio más sensiblero de la comedia romántica. En ella se narran paralelamente dos momentos: el presente, donde Desmond conoce a la mujer de su vida y planea su casamiento al mismo tiempo que decide seguir el camino de su hermano y alistarse en el ejército; y el pasado, con la dura infancia que se vio obligado a vivir junto con su hermano y su madre, víctimas del carácter violento de un padre que perdió el norte tras sobrevivir a la guerra. Incluso dentro de ambas líneas temporales encontramos una gran contradicción: mientras la pretérita representa cierta violencia, en un panorama terriblemente desolador, la actual hace gala de una cursilería y un tono amable que, en el mejor de los casos, aturde y descoloca. Ni siquiera la interpretación de Andrew Garfield, mucho más que solvente en el tramo final, parece encontrar el rumbo lejos de la colina de Hacksaw, mostrando una buena química con Teresa Palmer, pero viéndose superado por las prestaciones de su pareja en la ficción.

A pesar de su torpeza y las dificultades que tiene para narrar un proceso que, sin embargo, es necesario caminar para llegar al quid de la cuestión, Hasta el último hombre posee una segunda mitad soberbia, tan contundente y meritoria que por sí sola hace que dejemos en segundo plano los deméritos que hasta entonces impedían que viéramos una obra de nivel. La violencia que antes veíamos desde los ojos del protagonista (desde sus recuerdos hasta unos análisis de sangre o un atropello), como método para enfatizar esa aversión que siente por el conflicto armado, pasa a ser un ingrediente que tiñe casi todas las imágenes de los atmosféricos y viscerales enfrentamientos en los que se ve inmerso este soldado desarmado, filmados con una templanza que sobrecoge. Ahí es donde podemos ver el buen hacer del Mel Gibson cineasta, que nos hace sentir cada disparo, cada movimiento del enemigo (la visión que ofrece de los japoneses antes del desenlace no llega a ser del todo partidista), y logra que acompañemos a Desmond en su inenarrable hazaña. Ni siquiera los últimos minutos, que abrazan la fe sin pudor alguno y permiten el deleite ideológico de Gibson, subrayando el fondo a través de la forma, son suficiente para empañar lo que es un despliegue mayúsculo, capaz de encontrar cierta belleza en unas imágenes brutales, en ocasiones cercanas al sadismo.

    Justo ayer vi la película. Me gusto mucho, sorprende porque no es lo que te esperas. Es cierto que al principio le cuesta un poco arrancar y hay escenas un poco forzadas explicando cosas que se dan por hechas. Quiero ir a visitar esas islas japonesas de la II Guerra Mundial pero creo que voy a tener que pedir algun de estos préstamos personales para costearmelo. Un saludo y gracias
