Ricardo Darín’s film had a competition in Venice

It had to show up. And she appeared. When there are still several films to see in the competition for the Golden Lion, the members of the Jury already have one that can satisfy everyone equally. The Banshees of Inisherinby Martin McDonagh, should not be overlooked Julianne Moore and his companions, among them, our compatriot Mariano Cohn.

Playwright and director, McDonagh (won an Oscar for the screenplay for the Oscar-nominated 3 ads for a crime) had directed Farrell and Gleeson 14 years ago in Hiding in Bruges (2008), which had been a very pleasant surprise. And The Spirits of the Island, as it will be known when it opens in Argentina, in almost five months, only on February 2, 2023, confirms his talent.

The film has a lot, but a lot of humor, some violence and is about the friendship of two men in a small coastal town in Ireland, in 1923.

Or the end of a friendship.

“I just don’t like you anymore,” Colm (Brendan Gleeson) tells Pádraic Súilleabháin (Colin Farrell) dryly. Can not stand it. He is tired of having aimless talks, he is tired of the innocuous conversations of his (former) friend, he is tired of boredom and he wants to leave something for the future: to compose a song with his violin.

Pádraic is one of those who do not conceive or accept No for an answer, and he gets so heavy that Colm gives him an ultimatum. An ultimatum that will affect more than friendship, his own life. If Pádraic bothers him again, he will cut a finger off his hand.

The meeting is in a pub, at 2 pm – normal time for these two men to drink more than a pint of beer. Other equally lovable characters are those that make up the Irish Siobhan (Kerry Condón, Stacy in Better Call Saul), as Pádraic’s sister, and Dominic (Barry Keoghan, Druig in Eternals, Dunkirk), the young man with the least lights in town.

Have no doubts: something is going to take away from here (attention Ricardo Darín; another candidate appeared for the Volpi Cup for best actor) and the Oscar nominations will probably also rain down on him.

To film Ireland

The director’s parents, who are from London, were born in Ireland, like the rest of the main cast. And McDonagh went to film there, on the Irish west coast, where as a boy he would visit family. The island of Inisherin is fictitious, it does not exist, but a certain myth that the film uses, with a wandering Death with a woman’s name and a stick with a hook instead of a scythe, with the spirits or souls in pain of the title, has its roots in Irish stories.

“It was my dream,” said the director at the press conference, and from the beginning he thought of Farrell and Gleeson, with whom he had already worked on Hiding in Bruges. “I can’t imagine letting go of anything he writes because he’s an extraordinary writer and I’m always deeply emotionally and psychologically moved by the worlds he creates and the characters he designs,” Farrell said of McDonagh.

Farrell was enthusiastic about the script from the first reading and making the film has been “an exciting experience that touched me very deeply. I’m willing to participate in any type of project with him,” he said.

While Gleeson (Alastor “Mad-Eye” Moody in the saga of Harry Potterand that will test in Joker 2with Joaquin Phoenix) recalled that shooting Hiding in Bruges with Farrell and McDonagh was “both creatively and personally exhilarating… For me, the value of male friendship runs deep, and it’s important to talk about this at a time when relationships are being readjusted.” everyone with everyone”.

Farrell considered it essential that the story takes place almost a century ago, “because sharing thoughts and feelings with others, face to face, without devices, is something precious that cannot be supplanted by technology, which today takes us away from the intimacy that it takes to live.”

For the actor of Previous sentencehis character “has an innocent humanity”, and the film is “a story about the loss of innocence”.

Then 13 minutes of applause in the Sala Grande after the screening testify that people liked the film.

And how.
