Download e-book for kindle: Mi último suspiro by Luis Buñuel

By Luis Buñuel

Título unique: Mon dernier soupir
Luis Buñuel, 1982
Traducción: Ana María de los angeles Fuente

Este libro de memorias es el fruto de diecuocho años de trabajo y de amistad entre Luis Buñuel y Jean-Claude Carrière. Juntos hicierob seis obras maestras del cine: Diario de una camarera, Belle de Jour, l. a. vía Láctea, El discreto encanto de l. a. burguesía, El fantasma de l. a. libertad y Ese oscuro objeto del deseo. El libro nació espontáneamente de sus entrevistas en España y México durante los intervalos de las sesiones de trabajo; el uno evocando sus recuerdos, y el otro recogiendo las palabras de su amigo y anotándolas. Mi último suspiro recoge los angeles voz y las propias palabras de Luis Buñuel, y nos da una specific visión del genial cineasta y de su mundo más personal.
Con una mirada irónica pero al mismo tiempo nítida, objetiva, cercana y con los angeles suficiente distancia, Luis Buñuel nos relata situaciones de su infancia y juventud, narra su amistad con Lorca, Dalí y muchos otros personajes influyentes del siglo XX a los que desmitifica y al mismo tiempo alaba con cariño, nos relata las locuras realizadas en el seno del grupo surrealista, sus contradicciones y evolución y su posterior desaparición y su influencia innegable en l. a. cultura posterior, desgrana las atrocidades de los angeles Guerra Civil y sus actividades en el exilio, nos cuenta sus viajes a Hollywood, las dificultades de subsistencia, su aproximación a los angeles industria del cine en México y l. a. oportunidad de realizar allí tantas películas, and so on. Todo ello salpicado de un fino humor, de una inmensa ternura, de un amor por l. a. vida que nos atrapa en cada una de las palabras que conforman el libro.
En definitiva, prosa llana y cruda que transmite un cercanía poco recurring durante doscientas páginas. Las frases de Buñuel desprenden en cada línea una férrea fuerza important. l. a. lectura de estos recuerdos es, sobre todo y ante todo, un canto a los angeles vida, a las ganas de vivir, a los angeles necesidad de exprimir cada segundo, cada minuto, cada oportunidad que se presente en los angeles vida. Sin duda, las últimas palabras de un gran genio del cine.
