Peccato!

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex (But Were Afraid to Ask) is a comedy film (1972) written and directed by Woody Allen, consisting of a series of short sequences inspired by the book of the same name. The short sequence Do Some Women Have Trouble Reaching Orgasm? is Allen's homage to Italian film-making in general and Michelangelo Antonioni in particular: as he speaks in Italian with a deep French accent, he plays Fabrizio, a character who's married to a woman who can only reach orgasm in public. *


Woman: Sei arrabbiato con me?
Fabrizio: Ti amo. Perlomeno sappiamo che non sei frigida.
W: Tu sei un marito meraviglioso.
F: Andiamo a dormire.
W: Perché?
F: Non ti ricordi? Domani andremo al Vaticano!

Puestos a hablar de Allen (oh, ese genio!!) no me resisto a transcribir una de mis escenas favoritas -que no la única- de Manhattan:

Isaac lying on the couch, speaking into the tape recorder)
Isaac: An idea for a short story about ... um ... people in Manhattan who ... er ... are constantly creating these real unnecessary neurotic problems for themselves - because it keeps them from dealing with more unsolvable terrifying problems about ... er ... the universe - Um, tsch -- it's, uh ... well, it has to be optimistic. Well, all right, why is life worth living? That's a very good question. Um. Well, there are certain things I - I guess that make it worthwhile. Uh, like what? Okay. Um, for me ... oh, I would say ... what, Groucho Marx, to name one thing ... uh ummmm and Willie Mays, and um, uh, the second movement of the Jupiter Symphony, and ummmm ... Louie Armstrong's recording of "Potatohead Blues" ... umm, Swedish movies, naturally ... "Sentimental Education" by Flaubert ... uh, Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra ... ummm, those incredible apples and pears by Cézanne... uh, the crabs at Sam Wo's ... tsch, uh, Tracy's face ...

...y siguiendo con la conversación abierta hace unos días, entre las cosas que valen la pena también están Shakespeare, Borges y ¿por qué no? la ambigua identidad de un dios quién sabe si existente, pero, desde luego, útil estéticamente.

P.D. Otro de los momentos culminantes, la frase final de la película, a cargo de Tracy-Muriel Hemingway: "Not everybody gets corrupted. You have to have a little faith in people."

Para cualquier película de Woody Allen, pregúntale a Fabri, él parece ser un auténtico experto en el tema. Dudo mucho de que se le escape el más mínimo detalle de su filmografía y/o bibliografía.
