Distrito 9: El "apartheid" alienígena

La original campaña publicitaria de la película DISTRITO 9 lleva ya dos semanas presidiendo la cartelería en los paneles de los andenes del metro y en carteles callejeros, como si de una propaganda de un estado represor se tratase, nos informa de que ciertos lugares públicos son sólo para uso de los humanos y de que avisemos a las autoridades pertinentes en caso de que los alienígenas se salten las normas.

Y es que la película del debutante Neill Blomkamp trata precisamente de eso, de la segregación racial, del hambre de los menos favorecidos hacinados en ghettos, es una crítica excelente sobre la situación del tercer mundo.
El racismo, el tráfico de armas, las enfermedades, las condiciones de vida infrahumanas, las organizaciones internacionales y lo que no vemos de ellas.
Todo ello ambientado en una futurista ciudad de Johannesburgo (Sudáfrica) donde se ve en el film una clara crítica satírica sobre el "apartheid", salvo que en esta ocasión son los alienígenas la raza segregada y marginada.



Con una película así, sería muy fácil caer en el ridículo, todo lo contario, se trata de una cinta muy notable de ciencia ficción, a la altura de la desesperanzadora Blade Runnner añadiendole grandes dosis de denuncia social y política.

Definitivamente es un film que además de desplegar un enérgico ritmo narrativo, de cautivar desde lo estético con sus logrados efectos visuales, de entretener con una historia llamativa y original, de sorprender con el interesante trabajo interpretativo de un actor desconocido como es Sharlto Copley, de tensionar con el caótico manejo de cámaras para dar hiperrealismo al relato... además de todo ello la cinta deja de trasfondo bastantes conceptos reflexivos mediante esa original “humanización” del maltrato hacia los extraterrestres que son “refugiados” en una especie de campo de concentración.



La mejor película de ciencia ficción (con permiso de Blade runner) de los últimos 30 años.

About the article of Dublin...

Sergio, I feel as an Irish patriot that it is only fair that I give a more balanced review of your trip to the beautiful emerald isles. Firstly, and I feel that this is an important point, although you rightly said that music is the language of the Irish, it is also important in order to grasp the full cultural experience of what Ireland has to offer that one also has a good grasp of English!! For in order to understand and really appreciate the relevance of kilmainham gaol, the book of kells or even the giants causeway - it helps to know the history behind it - as I am sure you can appreciate.

Secondly, I of course cannot critique your observations of the merrily drunk Irish, which is a common occurance in Ireland. However, I feel it is important to point out the vital role that pubs and bars play in Irish society ranging from the supply of quality music to the provision of good conversation and a market for the caliente populace to meet and hook up. What other city provides its citizens with 700 pubs to meet fellow horny people and get them drunk enough to kiss you!! Now thats service with a smile!!

Also I feel you gave a very unfair description of Irish women and how they dress - not all of us are fortunate enough to be endowed with breasts big enough to be bulging out of our tops. Sergio, have you forgotten about what you said about Irish Girls eyes and how pretty they were?? I am beginning to be a bit sceptical about this comment if all you remember are tits and big hips!! Surely, Irish girls have more to offer than this?? we are great tour guides remember!! :P

Finally, the Irish weather, alas I cannot argue with you that it is attrocious but and this is a big but, Ireland is renowned for its shit weather, people usually come prepared for rain and wind, however, as you so rightly stated it does not act as a deterant i.e. the crowds of tourists one witnesses in temple bar everyday. Ireland, however, has so much to offer its tourists from its buskers, beautiful architecture, historical sites, and the famous irish wit and charm that the weather never dampens peoples spirits or experiences....which I hope you can vouch for.

I think I have succeeded in balancing out your review somewhat...I hope that the readers of your blog with have a more rounded view of Ireland and will take both points of view into consideration if and when they are planning a trip over ;) who could pass up having your own tour guide to ply you with drink and bring you to all the best places!! :) talk soon xx

Hi Donna! How´s your head? I am glad of which finally you have been decided to write in blog. You do not get upset reason why spoken on the Irish girls, was only a sarcastic commentary, i don´t want to generalize either on the size of the teats of the Irish….in addition I always watch first the eyes of the girls, jejeje. Totally in agreement with your special marriage of music, Irish people as you are great lover of music and are united to yours history. By the way, already I saw the film " Michael Collins" I liked much and it seemed to me that she was betrayed and unjustly tried by the envious one about Eamon de Valera. The great history and great film. I hope that you continue commenting in blog, when you come to Madrid I wait for a chronic one on your point of view about which you think of Madrid….in November no? Kisses, talk soon.
