'Far from the sky'

Far from Heaven.EE UU, 2002 (107 minutos). Director: Todd Haynes. Intérpretes: Julianne Moore, Dennis Haysbert, Dennis Quaid.

Many filmmakers insist on pursuing modernity, and since they are not Godard, most fail. Todd Haynes, by contrast, uses the classic melodrama format to capture the essence of radically modern cinema. Far From Heaven rediscover the visual modes of the 1950s Douglas Sirk to capture his spirit in the new millennium. Haynes draws with as much emotion as delicacy the relationship between a wealthy woman and a black gardener, which scandalizes a petty, racist and homophobic society.

A jury must acquit or sentence an accused person to death, and must do so unanimously. Thus begins a film that still offers film lessons with sixty years of life and that also delivers a virulent criticism of lack of solidarity, prejudice and the death penalty. Sidney Lumet creates with his camera a continuous asphyxiation, between tense gestures and intimate anguish that trap ambiguous characters and, therefore, closer, led by a sublime Henry Fonda.
