'Black woman'

The Woman in Black. Reino Unido, 2012 (95 minutos). Director: James Watkins. Intérpretes: Daniel Radcliffe, Ciarán Hinds, Janet McTeer.

It is stimulating to find in the cinema of 2012 a terrifying film that does not gratuitously shake its images, that does not shake a script in search of impossible traps and, even more, that respects a genre today insulted by so many alleged films. Under the auspices of the new production company Hammer, The Woman in Black revives the scent of old classics, moves fluently in the gothic terrain and skillfully develops a ghost story that, although it uses more than well-known references, grows as the footage progresses thanks to the use of a slow tempo and frames that squeeze characters and sets. And he delivers several sequences in which terror is born from the pure essence of the staging. A good surprise in which, in addition, Daniel Radcliffe begins to leave Harry Potter's shadow behind.

The cinema wins. The Tree of Life travels through almost uncharted terrain and becomes an unusual movie. Malick opts for the magic of images, for abandonment in the slow cadence of a succession of sequences that give off sensations, dreams and realities. The tree of life shows with unprecedented beauty how what was lived in childhood guides, in one way or another, future life. A life that can be everyone's, according to Borges's motto: “A man is all men”. And Malick dives into the portrait of a family dominated by a severe father, repressive, but also full of love. The father. And travel to the origins of the planet to show the source of existence. Life. Better or worse films may be made, but what is certain is that films like Terrence Malick's are not made.
