Filme “Juventude” (2015)

Assisti a este filme maravilhoso estrelado por Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel, Jane Fonda, Rachel Weisz e Paul Dano. O personagem principal é o Maestro Fred Ballinger, interpretado por Michael Caine, que fez muito sucesso regendo orquestras importantes na Europa e compondo grandes obras, e que resolveu se aposentar. Ele está passando férias em um hotel na Suíça, junto com sua filha. Um grande amigo, Mick Boyle (Harvey Keitel) também está hospedado no hotel, terminando um roteiro para seu próximo filme (ele é um famoso diretor de cinema).

No hotel, também estão hospedados um jovem ator americano de sucesso, mas que é sempre lembrado pelo filme mais comercial, a recém ganhadora do prêmio de Miss Universo, um monge budista que se diz capaz de levitar e um grande astro do futebol, no momento velho, muito gordo, mal conseguindo respirar (que remete em todos os aspectos ao argentino Maradona).

O hotel é muito luxuoso e oferece aos hóspedes massagens, tratamentos médicos, piscina, ski e shows noturno de música ou variedades. E vários contrastes são mostrados. A vida dos jovens com seus questionamentos superficiais e julgamentos precoces das pessoas e situações; e a vida dos mais velhos, com a percepção de que o que mais faz sentido na vida são as pessoas (que muitas vezes não estão mais vivas) e as emoções. Os jovens querem acelerar tudo e desejam que o futuro chegue logo; os mais velhos querem apenas encontrar algo pelo que valha a pena continuar vivendo.

Além da história do filme ser muito interessante, a trilha sonora escolhida é incrível. Coloquei para escutá-la e percebo como houve um casamento perfeito entre as músicas, as imagens e as cenas do filme.

Segue abaixo o link da trilha sonora:

Também transcrevi alguns trechos do filme. Vale muito a pena assistir.

Jimmy Tree: I have to choose, I have to choose what is really worth telling: horror or desire? And I choose desire. You, each one of you, you open my eyes, you made me see that I should not wasting my time on the senseless fear… I want to tell about your desire, my desire. So pure, so impossible, so immoral. But it doesn’t matter because that’s what makes us alive.

Mick Boyle: You say that emotions are overrated. But that’s bullshit. Emotions are all we’ve got.

Fred Ballinger: Children don’t know their parents ordeals. Sure, they know certain details, striking elements. And they know what they need to know to be on one side or the other. They don’t know that I trembled the first time I ever saw you on stage. All the orchestra behind my back were laughing at my falling in love. And my unexpected fragility. They don’t know that you sold of your mother’s jewellery in order to help me with my second piece. When everyone else was turning me down calling me presumptuous inelegant musician. They don’t know that you too, and you were right that you thought I was a presumptuous, inelegant musician at that time. And you cried so hard. Not because you sold you mother’s jewellery but because you sold your mother. They don’t know that we were together. You and I. Despite all the exhaustion, and the pain, and hardship. Melanie. They must never know that you and I despite everything liked to think of ourselves as a simple song.

Miss Universe: I appreciate the irony, but when it is drenched in poison, it is drained of its force and reveals something else.

Jimmy Tree: What?

Miss Universe: Frustration.

Lena Ballinger: You know, sometimes when I’m asleep at night, he watches me… and last night he stroked my cheek for the first time in my life. Only I wasn’t asleep… I was pretending to be asleep.

Mick Boyle: Parents know when their children are pretending to be asleep.

Fred Ballinger: I’m wondering what happens to your memory over time. I can’t remember my family. I don’t remember their faces or how they talked. Last night I was watching Lena while she was asleep. And I was thinking about all the thousands of little things that I done for her as her father. And I done them deliberately so that she would remember them. When she grows up. But in time. She won’t remember a single thing.

Fred Ballinger: You understand everything with your hands, don’t you?

Masseuse: We can understand all sorts of things by touching. Who knows why people are so afraid of touching?

Fred Ballinger: Maybe it’s because they think it has something to do with pleasure.

Masseuse: That’s just another good reason for touching instead of talking.

Fred Ballinger: Don’t you like to talk?

Masseuse: I never have anything to say.
