The dance of Victoria
The dance of Victoria
He was not thinking to comment on this movie. But I have realized that previously it had expressed my judgment on Fat persons and on The map of the sounds of Tokyo. With which I believe that it is opportune valuing this movie to complete the trilogy of the movies that they compete for the selection of the Oscars for the best movie of not English speech in the next edition.
He was listening another day to Fernando Trueba, the director of the movie The Dance of Victoria to say that he pays already attention of the criticism, not neither of the good ones, nor of the bad ones. The good ones are worse why they can turn you idiot and the bad ones them do not pay attention why they are done by the people who receives money for it. He did not say if for doing them in favor or in against. I agree with the first thing, but not with the second thing (for allusions): nobody pays away from me.
Saying this: of what does The dance of Victoria go?
Ángel Santiago (Abel Ayala), a young dreamer, pilferer of small mounts, has just gone out of the jail for a general amnesty granted by the government in Chile, owing to the arrival of the democracy to the country, to those prisoners who have not committed blood crimes. Between them Nicolás Vergara Grey (Ricardo Darín) is a famous thief of safes whom also they reprieve. Angel gets involved in being employed with Vergara at a big blow while it does not stop thinking of taking revenge for the jailer for the abuses received in prison. But the thief has decided to stop robbing safes, flees of its reputation, to center on recovering its wife and son. A good day Ángel Santiago will meet Victoria (Miranda Bodenhöfer) an adolescent sorceress whose mass communication media are the dance. The life of three protagonists takes a new course in search of its destinations. All this wrapped with a certain magic, oneiric realism.
The dance of Victoria is based on the novel homónima of the Chilean Antonio Skármeta, winner of the Award Planet. The proper author was employed at the script along with Fernando Trueba y Jonás (son of Trueba).
Preceded of a good marketing campaign, The dance … has good ingredients to be a very good movie.
I usually allow to take for the sensations and on having gone out of seeing the tape, these were not good. The almost unanimous comment, between my friends, was of not being a round movie. It left a sweet and sour flavor to us. Something fails in its set.
Three protagonists are haughty (the young Elevated place is captivating, the ambience reminds me to Scarlett Johansson) it is very successful, the musician accompanies and the exposition is more than correct. The personages are quite built. Along the movie we see details that, seemingly, are insignificant, but that then fit of correct form (example and without revealing anything, when young Victoria knows to Angel this one is in the entry of a movies, then, towards the end, we will see porqué it is there). But also it is true that some of the plots they are weak and badly finished off. The end is foreseeable and it satisfies very few. There it is where it loses points, in the ending, that does to him that it goes down in its final qualification. He does not convince in its intention to thrill us.

But from these lines I say that The dance of Victoria is a good movie. And it is a movie that it is necessary to see, simply because it is worth it.
From the presentation of The dance …, the mass media have given many cane to Fernando Trueba. The criticism, mostly, is very hard, too much, it is me who thinks. Perhaps he is demanded very much from the one who can do good movies. But the true thing is that between the people, what is called a mouth to ear, circulate the movie with good sensations. And it is being much recommended.
Finally, as I did with The map of the sounds of Tokyo, The dance of Victoria has a very good web page where you can do to graphic contents.
