viento de cine — 8 — melodrama




[...]

—¿Señor Rueda?

—El mismo que viste (Yves Saint-Laurent) y calza (Martinelli). Dígame.

—En realidad, no hay nada concreto. Tan sólo sentía la necesidad de hablar con alguien.

—Me parece muy bien, pero esto es un programa de cine.

—Estoy abrumado por multitud de problemas. Mi familia me abandonó. Ahora estoy solo, ¿entiende? No quiero aburrirle con mis pequeñas miserias. Sólo tenía necesidad de oír una voz amiga. Esta noche he estado al borde del suicidio.

—Bueno, mire...

—No, no hace falta que diga nada. Me basta con sentir su presencia al otro lado del hilo telefónico; saber que, siquiera por unos breves momentos, está escuchando. ¿Me permite que le cuente la película de mi vida?

—Oiga...

—Tengo cuarenta años, los cuales han sido no más que un rosario de sufrimientos y congojas, de infinito dolor. A edad temprana quedé huérfano. Mi existencia miserable fue parecida a la de esos niños expósitos de las novelas de Carlos Dickens. Fui víctima de innombrables privaciones y fatigas. Carecí de cualquier tipo de educación. Las enfermedades se cebaron en mí. Y así, salvaje, idiota, débil de cuerpo y espíritu, me lanzaron a enfrentarme con el mundo. ¿Qué le parece?

—...

—Desgarrador, ¿no? Si le agobio mucho, no tiene más que decirlo; cuelgo, y aquí me quedo yo, solito con mi pena. Hice los trabajos más denigrantes; mi mujer me engañó con mi único amigo; perdí lo poco ahorrado durante muchos años de... ¿Señor Rueda?  ¿Está ahí? Me pareció que decía algo... Rueda, por Dios, ¡conteste! Esta tortura no me deja dormir... No puedo dormir. ¿Me oye usted, Rueda? ¡Dormir!

Vainica Doble: Taquicardia


La funcionaria
(Carmen Santonja)

Los papeles se amontonan
en mi mesa de trabajo.
Harta estoy de partirme los cuernos
contra folios y legajos.

Voy a mandarlo todo al infierno,
no quiero currar a destajo.
Si he de pasar así otro invierno,
voy a acabar como un badajo.

Yo no sé por qué hice esta oposición
en vez de estudiar corte y confección.
No le veo la gracia ni el misterio
a ser funcionaria de un Ministerio.

Yo quisiera ser un vegetal
del jardín de un cementerio,
o simple mineral.
O también araña de cristal
de un palacio estilo Imperio,
o talla medieval
de algún monasterio.

Los papeles sobrepasan
la altura de mi cabeza.
Me tiraría por la ventana
si no fuera por pereza.

Yo no sé trabajar sin ganas,
no está en mi naturaleza.
Precisas son fuerzas sobrehumanas
para lograr esa proeza.

Quiet Please... — The New Best Of Nick Lowe, Disc One


When I Write The Book
By Rockpile
 
Well I can remember
Like it was only yesterday
Love was young and foolish
Like a little child at play
But oh how lovers change
I never dreamed how easily
For now I'm just a shadow
Of the boy I used to be

And when I write the book about my love
It will be about a man who was torn in half
About his hope and ambition wasted through the years
The pain will be written on every page in tears
When I write the book about my love

I was a fool to myself
When I kept on runnin' around
And I fared little better
When I tried settlin' down
Maybe some magic moment
I have ever known, but not for long
For all too soon the magic
Was in a moment gone

And when I write the book about my love
It'll be a heartbreaking story about love and luck
When I get down on the pages all I felt
It will make the hardest-hearted of critics' hearts melt
When I write the book about my love

When I was young love was fun
And I was so happy
I looked so good
I dressed so snappy
Two-tone shoes on my feet
Big old smile on my face
'Cause I moved round over the place
Now I'm down in heels and my complexion is bad
Because my love of life is sadder than sad

And when I write the book about my love
It'll be a pop publication, tougher than tough
When I get down on the pages all I missed
It will shoot to the top of the best-sellers list
When I write the book about my love

sausalito



Los Abatidos
Sausalito


En Sausalito me encuentro bien.
La gente ríe y me saluda, yo también.
Nadie se fija en quién es quién.
Todos se ayudan, no hay envidia ni desdén.

Si necesitas, no importa qué,
allí lo tienes, todo es tuyo, créeme.
Y si estás solo, no importa quién,
alguien se acerca y simplemente dice ven.

No quiero marchar de Sausalito.
Déjame soñar, lo necesito.
Quiero imaginar que en Sausalito estoy.

En Sausalito me encuentro bien.
Nadie está triste, todos cantan, yo también.
No hay despedidas en el andén.
Todos se quedan, nadie marcha solo en tren.

Si a veces llueve, un día de cien,
luego el sol sale y ya no se vuelve a poner.
Y si estás solo, no importa quién,
alguien se acerca y simplemente dice ven.

No quiero marchar de Sausalito.
Déjame soñar, lo necesito.
Quiero imaginar que en Sausalito estoy.

En Sausalito me encuentro bien.
La gente ríe y me saluda, yo también.
Nadie se fija en quién es quién.
Todos se ayudan, no hay envidia ni desdén.

Si necesitas, no importa qué,
allí lo tienes, todo es tuyo, créeme.
Y si estás solo, no importa quién,
alguien se acerca y simplemente dice ven.
 
No quiero marchar de Sausalito.
Déjame soñar, lo necesito.
Quiero imaginar que en Sausalito estoy.

viento de cine — 7 — billy wilder & something in darkness




[Dos diálogos estelares (y expurgados) del archivo sonoro de «Viento de Cine»: la llamada de Billy Wilder; y el descubrimiento de un film revelador.]


(1)

—Mr. Rueda?

—Yes. It’s me. Are you English?

—I’m not English. I’m American. I call you from Hollywood.

—And... who are you?

—My name is Billy Wilder.

The Master! I can’t believe it... That’s wonderful! A pleasure...

—You are stupid. That’s all I wanted to say. Completely stupid. You are a burro.

—But... WHY? I admire you so much... You are one of my gods.

—And you are a poor man. I hate critics. And I hate you... Goodbye, little fool...


(2)

—Señor Rueda, ¿ha visto Something in Darkness?

—¿Qué? Eso no existe. O está en vídeo, para decirlo de otro modo.

—Es una película americana de los años treinta.

—¿Me toma el pelo?

—En absoluto. La vi de casualidad en un cine porno de Los Ángeles, porque el caso es que todas las estrellas de la época salen en pelotas. La cinta recoge una monumental orgía en Sunset Boulevard.

—¡Venga ya! ¿En cueros?

—Como le digo. Oiga, al verlos sin nada encima, todos esos mitos se me vinieron abajo. Te das cuenta de que son personas de carne y hueso, como tú y yo.

—Escuchemos a Frank Sinatra cantando «The Way You Look Tonight». Y usted no cuelgue, que tengo aún unas preguntas.

I can gather all the news I need on the weather report
Hey, I've got nothing to do today but smile
Da-n-da-da-n-da-n-da-da and here I am
The only living boy in New York

Half of the time we're gone but we don't know where
And we don't know where
Here I am

Half of the time we're gone but we don't know where
And we don't know where

Tom, get your plane right on time
I know that you've been eager to fly now
Hey, let your honesty shine, shine, shine now
Da-n-da-da-n-da-n-da-da
Like it shines on me
The only living boy in New York
The only living boy in New York

Here I am

Do You Ever Think Of Me
By Dan Prater

Do you ever think of me
Do I ever cross your mind
Do you ever ask yourself
What's she doing tonight

There's this crazy thing in my head
I don't know if it's true
Whenever you're thinking 'bout me
I'm thinking 'bout you

Do you ever think of me
Just out of the blue
When you're just sitting around
With nothing to do

There's this crazy thing in my head
I don't know if it's true
Whenever you're thinking 'bout me
I'm thinking 'bout you

Do you ever think of me
When you wake in the night
Feeling like you're in a dream
When you open your eyes

There's this crazy thing in my head
I don't know if it's true
Whenever you're thinking 'bout me
I'm thinking 'bout you

Red Rubber Ball
By B. Woodley & P. Simon

I should have known you'd bid me farewell
There's a lesson to be learned from this and I've learned it very well
Now I know you're not the only starfish in the sea
If I never hear your name again, it's all the same to me

And I think it's gonna be all right
Yeah, the worst is over now
The morning sun is shining like a red rubber ball

You never care for secrets I confide
To you, I'm just an ornament, something for your pride
Always running, never caring, that's the life you live
Stolen minutes of your time were all you had to give

And I think it's gonna be all right
Yeah, the worst is over now
The morning sun is shining like a red rubber ball

The story's in the past with nothing to recall
I've got my life to live, and I don't need you at all
The roller coaster ride we took is nearly at an end
I bought my tickets with my tears, that's all I'm gonna spend

And I think it's gonna be all right
Yeah, the worst is over now
The morning sun is shining like a red rubber ball

I think it's gonna be all right
Yeah, the worst is over now
The morning sun is shining like a red rubber ball
It's bouncing and it's shining like a red rubber ball

deux poèmes de paul verlaine

Automne, chemin à travers les bois, 1876
Camille Pissarro  


En sourdine

Calmes dans le demi-jour
Que les branches hautes font,
Pénétrons bien notre amour
De ce silence profond.

Fondons nos âmes, nos coeurs
Et nos sens extasiés,
Parmi les vagues langueurs
Des pins et des arbousiers.

Ferme tes yeux à demi,
Croise tes bras sur ton sein,
Et de ton coeur endormi
Chasse à jamais tout dessein.

Laisson-nous persuader
Au souffle berceur et doux
Qui vient à tes pieds rider
Les ondes de gazon roux.

Et quand, solennel, le soir
Des chênes noirs tombera,
Voix de notre désespoir,
Le rossignol chantera.


A la sordina

Sosegados en la media luz
que procuran las altas ramas,
penetremos bien nuestro amor
de este silencio profundo.

Fundamos nuestras almas, nuestros corazones
y nuestros sentidos extasiados,
entre la vaga languidez
de los pinos y los madroños.

Cierra los ojos a medias,
cruza los brazos sobre el pecho,
y de tu corazón adormecido
aleja para siempre todo propósito.

Dejémonos persuadir
al soplo arrollador y dulce
que viene a tus pies a rizar
las olas de hierba roja.

Y cuando, solemne, la noche,
de los robles negros caiga,
voz de nuestra desesperanza,
el ruiseñor cantará.


L’heure exquise

La lune blanche
Luit dans les bois ;
De chaque branche
Part une voix
Sous la ramée...

O bien-aimée.

L’étang reflète,
Profond miroir,
La silhouette
Du saule noir
Où le vent pleure.

Révons, c’est l'heure !

Un vaste et tendre
Apaisement
Semble descendre
Du firmament
Que l’astre irise.

C’est l’heure exquise.


La hora exquisita

La luna blanca
luce en los bosques;
de cada rama
parte una voz
bajo el ramaje...

Oh, bien amada.

El estanque refleja,
profundo espejo,
la silueta
del sauce negro
donde el viento llora.

¡Soñemos, es la hora!

Un vasto y tierno
sosiego
parece descender
del firmamento
que el astro irisa.

Es la hora exquisita.

The Sound Of Silence
By Paul Simon

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

Fools, said I
You do not know, silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed
In the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the signs said
The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whisper'd the sounds of silence

Willy DeVille: Love & Emotion

The Atlantic Years


Demasiado corazón (Too Much Heart)
By Willy DeVille

Every morning I'm broken
Everyday I die
Every night I weaken
And every night I cry

Standing in the rain
In the street outside
Running down my face
Tears in my eyes

Demasiado corazón

Don't know why I wake up
Don't know why I try
Was that me the cool one
Or another guy

Standing in the shadows
Of the sky above
No one knows I'm crying
Beaten by my love

Demasiado corazón

Cada mañana
estoy quebrado,
y por las noches
me despierto
con lágrimas negras,
fuera de la calle,
abajo de la lluvia

Lonely with my pride
Holding in my pain

Demasiado corazón
