A visit to Hollywood throughout Oscars week At least in my restricted expertise, it actually begins when a physiotherapist treats the contractures that you’ve got accrued whereas making ready for the expedition. Or maybe that very same day, on the eve of the flight to Los Angeles, when, whereas attending a live performance by the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra on the National Music Auditorium in Madrid, you realized that your head was already some other place: on the Seeing Augustin Hadelich, the violin virtuoso, carry out a tango, who shakes and shakes with a lanky posture whereas the music runs via his skeleton, you don't hearken to the music, however you suppose that the person seems like a Tim Burton character. Simultaneously you understand that the piece is Por una Cabeza, composed by Carlos Gardel and written by Alfredo Le Pera. And that very same tango sounds in Essence of a Woman, the place Al Pacino and Gabriella Anwar dance it.

But the dream of the journey to Hollywood looking for a statuette, which is a dream shared by tens of millions and tens of millions of individuals and fueled for the reason that late 20s of the final century by the movie and media trade, started actually within the airport. At the gate of the Barcelona-Los Angeles flight final Thursday there was pleasure. There was laughter and hugs between individuals who acknowledged one another.

It was a really particular journey, and the jokes abounded. There have been additionally some politicians and fairly a number of journalists. Suddenly, some teenage ladies started to boil once they acknowledged Juani Caruso, one of many actors in The Snow Society.They have been cautious, as a result of Caruso, cautious, was carrying the hood of his darkish sweatshirt. The Argentine, a 22-year-old boy, Twitter consumer, Twitch streamer and musician, has been baptized because the influencer of the snow for his publications on networks concerning the long and hard filming of the movie, by which he performs Alvaro Mangino, one of many 16 survivors of the air accident within the Andes.

I and Nuria Costa, the movie's press supervisor, enlightened me concerning the adolescent phenomenon that has occurred with the movie directed by Juan Antonio Bayona. The Snow Society has already been seen by greater than 200 million folks on Netflix and, if each international phenomenon is a shock, the truth that younger folks have develop into so hooked on the movie is the best of all. Caruso, upon arriving in Madrid, had a gathering at a spot and, in a number of hours, the place had been full of 400 folks. But Nuria's expertise accompanying actors within the screenings of the movie that have been made within the Madrid cinemas of Palacio de Hielo and Kinepolis was extra excessive. With Blas, says Nuria, referring to Blas Polidori, who performs Coco Nicolich, it was loopy… There have been youngsters ready for the actors since two within the afternoon for the night time's efficiency. Security was overwhelmed… In Kinepolis there have been 100 ladies and, all of a sudden, they’re like a zombie roar, everybody needed to the touch them… And they ripped off my necklace.

The very younger actors within the movie, most of them new to movie as performers, have skilled what Marilyn Monroe commented in an interview: When you might be well-known, you face the rawest a part of human nature.

The aircraft I traveled on was one of many ones that took us to Los Angeles about 150 folks together with crew and members of the family of the 2 Spanish movies nominated for the Oscars. Various individuals who give an concept of ​​the keenness generated by the dream of the Academy Awards, and in addition of how animated we’re in Spain and Latin America, as a result of, in different nations, those that shouldn’t have a ticket for the gala choose to see the awards. From your private home.

As quickly as we landed, the mecca of cinema engulfed us and we dispersed all through town to buddies' homes – in my case that of the author and director of the Instituto Cervantes Luisg Martín and her husband, Axier, all the time so beneficiant -, lodges and flats. lease.

The subsequent morning, each went to the occasions or conferences they’d, to understand straight away the frenzy of Los Angeles when the Oscar ceremony approaches. It is a metropolis that already has a number of tenths of feverand that on Sunday he can be utterly sick with ego and what some name glamour.

In the primary Uber I took, whereas we have been driving via Beverly Hills with the home windows open and smelling the freshly lower grass of the chalets, they have been speaking on the radio about events with celebrities. They defined who was the best paid actor -Adam Sandler- and the actress -Jennifer Aniston-. The taxi driver advised me that his earlier shopper had been a Ukrainian journalist who lined the awards. Cinema, cinema and extra cinema.

At the casual press convention The Snow Society which I attended on the Teleferic Barcelona restaurant, the place the Spanish and Chilean social gathering will even be held on awards day, I chatted with Bayona and the manufacturing firms Beln Atienza and Sandra Hermida to what extent the choral proposal and the emotion of the movie could possibly be the explanation why younger folks and adults have linked with a narrative that, advised in a really totally different means, had already been seen within the nineties in Viven, directed by Frank Marshall.

The Snow Society It is a movie narrated from a spot of compassion and that alludes to the most effective of human beings, to belief in others. If we speak about survival tales in excessive nature, that of Shackleton and Endurance in Antarctica represents the perfect of particular person management; On the opposite hand, that of The Snow Society within the Andes, talks about choral management. The want for the opposite to outlive, for the collective, Bayona advised me as we pounced on the water bottles and croissants. Young individuals are those who sympathize probably the most, younger folks, partly for that cause, perceive the movie.

Belén commented that the thought of ​​mutual assist as a means of surviving in remoted communities and the concept seems within the e-book of Pablo Vierci that the ego is of no use within the mountains have been the driving power behind the venture. Sandra added that The Snow Society tells a narrative that comforts you as a human and social being due to its dedication to the group over the person, to the concept, with out buddies, with out a companion or household, with out the opposite, you might be nothing. .

While we have been speaking, we have been making an attempt to swallow one thing in a rush, as a result of lately right here we’ve finished every little thing in a rush. Long distances have pressured us to go together with our tongues hanging out. like he advised me David Mart, one of many nominees for make-up, the expertise is overwhelming. The additionally candidate Ana Lopez Puigcerver -the trio completes it Montse Rib– He commented that you just understand how a lot life adjustments for some time throughout awards season whenever you understand that you just haven't vacuumed for a month. She and her sister Belén, nominated as a hairdresser, skilled the horror of getting their suitcase misplaced on their flight, simply on the journey by which garments really matter, as a result of the Oscars additionally signify the obsession with picture. To go to the nominees' dinner they needed to run to purchase one thing at Zara, exactly the model of which actor Enzo Vogrincic is the picture.

One perceives to what extent life adjustments for a time for the prizes when it occurs that it has been a month with out having vacuumed.

There, scattered all through the neighborhoods of that intensive metropolis by which you bear in mind a film in each nook, we have been greater than 100 folks sharing a dream that had already been fulfilled by the very fact of being there, no matter whether or not we gained the prize or not. .

As to The Snow Society, I believe that being half, each of their function, of a multitudinous choral dream that defends a twinning society is already excellent information.
