Muchas bestias

Abuelas, revistas del corazón, vecinas, novelas y películas cuentan una, otra y otra vez la historia de la bestia que a pesar de su fiereza/maltrato/insensibilidad/tosquedad logra finalmente conquistar a la bella y, como si fuera poco, enamorarse de ella.

Nuestro pasado no perdona: hemos sido, somos y seguiremos siendo unas bestias. Sin embargo parte de nuestro éxito radica precisamente allí.

Es la historia de nuestras vidas y la historia de la humanidad comprimida en un cuento de 17 páginas, en 139 minutos de una película, en el diario de una adolescente o en toda una existencia.

Freud lo explica con una lógica reveladora: La bella, en ausencia de una madre, y en presencia de un padre inseguro de su masculinidad, reemplaza la figura femenina de la madre ausente por la del padre y busca en otro lugar esa masculinidad que no halla en su hogar. ¿Y qué mejor sitio para encontrar masculinidad que una bestia?

Aterrizando este argumento al cine que cuenta de una y otra forma la historia repetida de la bella y la bestia, nos adentramos a tres historias: La Bella y la Bestia, The proposal y As Good as It Gets (título traducido en nuestras latitudes como “Mejor Imposible”); las tres nos confirman la misma historia contada de maneras diferentes.

I don’t know what to say really.
Three minutes
to the biggest battle of our professional lives
all comes down to today.
we heal
as a team
or we are going to crumble.
Inch by inch
play by play
till we’re finished.
We are in hell right now, gentlemen
believe me
we can stay here
and get the shit kicked out of us
we can fight our way
back into the light.
We can climb out of hell.
One inch, at a time.

Now I can’t do it for you.
I’m too old.
I look around and I see these young faces
and I think
I mean
I made every wrong choice a middle age man could make.
I uh….
I pissed away all my money
believe it or not.
I chased off
anyone who has ever loved me.
And lately,
I can’t even stand the face I see in the mirror.

You know when you get old in life
things get taken from you.
That’s, that’s part of life.
you only learn that when you start losing stuff.
You find out that life is just a game of inches.
So is football.
Because in either game
life or football
the margin for error is so small.
I mean
one half step too late or to early
you don’t quite make it.
One half second too slow or too fast
and you don’t quite catch it.
The inches we need are everywhere around us.
They are in ever break of the game
every minute, every second.

On this team, we fight for that inch
On this team, we tear ourselves, and everyone around us
to pieces for that inch.
We CLAW with our finger nails for that inch.
Because we know
when we add up all those inches
that’s going to make the fucking difference
between WINNING and LOSING
between LIVING and DYING.

I’ll tell you this
in any fight
it is the guy who is willing to die
who is going to win that inch.
And I know
if I am going to have any life anymore
it is because, I am still willing to fight, and die for that inch
because that is what LIVING is.
The six inches in front of your face.

Now I can’t make you do it.
You gotta look at the guy next to you.
Look into his eyes.
Now I think you are going to see a guy who will go that inch with you.
You are going to see a guy
who will sacrifice himself for this team
because he knows when it comes down to it,
you are gonna do the same thing for him.

That’s a team, gentlemen
and either we heal now, as a team,
or we will die as individuals.
That’s football guys.
That’s all it is.
Now, whattaya gonna do?
