ELECTION


Jhonnie To es uno de los directores de Hong Kong que actualmente mas me estimulan al ver una pelicula, sus trabajos de acción y de triadas son los mejores ejercicios visuales que he podido difrutar, titulos como Fulltime killer, A hero never dies, Breaking News, entre otras, han hecho de mi un autentico fanatico de este Director asiatico.

Ahora nos toca analizar su ultimo trabajo, una cinta que transcurre en el proceso "democratico" de elegir al presidente de una triada, la organización criminal mas poderosa de Hong Kong, en esta dos candidatos se enfrentan por el "bastón" que les de respeto, poder y dinero, sin embargo, las ambiciones, las traiciones y las lealtades modificaran todo el sistema tradicional de elección de la triada.

Johnnie To nos regala una pelicula potente y dura, sin utilizar un miligramo de polvora o alguna escena de acción impactante, autoinventandose To, radica su fuerza en esta cinta, en el poder de los dialogos y la contundencia de sus escenas dramaticas, creando un ambiente de tensión constante en donde los personajes pueden reaccionar de diversas e inquietantes maneras, lo que hacen que las situaciones resulten un poco impredecibles.

Con una base de actores espectacular, conformada por Simon Yam, Tony Leung Ka Fai, Louis Koo, entre otros, el experimentado director nos muestra a manera casi documental los entretelones del proceso de elección de una triada, las coimas internas, la campaña sucia entre los candidatos, las traiciones, las rebeliones y las lealtades, de este mundo criminal fielmente reflejado en esta cinta.



De mas esta decir que, Johnnie To es un excelente Director, al cual estas mutaciones sobre el genero que mas domina le hace mucho bien al cine de Hong Kong, experimentando esta vez en la violencia de sus personajes y sus reacciones a veces mas violentas que el uso de un arma, en un estilo de film noir y de cine negro poco explorado en la cinematografia de Hong Kong y en especial en la de To.

En sintesis, una gran pelicula de Triadas que se agradece, para esperar siempre algo mas de Johnnie To y rezar que nunca nos deje de sorprender, para el beneplacito de todos los que admiramos su magistral cine.

Fuera de la reseña, agradecer a Chanpoo por el premio enviado (Un DVD original y autografiado por Johnnie To de Throw Down) que es preciso para ver algo mas de este excelente Director Hongkones.

    Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm going
    to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had
    to ask!

    I think what you wrote was very reasonable. However, what about
    this? what if you were to write a awesome title?
    I am not suggesting your content isn't good, however what if you added a headline to possibly grab people's attention?
    I mean "ELECTION" is a little boring. You might peek at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create post titles to get viewers to open the links. You might add a video or a pic or two to get people interested about everything've
    got to say. Just my opinion, it might bring your blog a little bit more interesting.
