‘POR LA GRACIA DE DIOS’ | ¿VALE LA PENA?

En la política, en la cultura, la sociedad y, por supuesto, en el cine la sombra de la Iglesia católica es inabarcable. Amplio es su recorrido a lo largo de los siglos, y ha hecho tantos bienes y servicios como provisto de innumerables desgracias. Tragedias ocultas que, afortunadamente, son cada vez más descubiertas y juzgadas en la actualidad. Y, por consiguiente, son tratadas también en el Séptimo Arte.

Todos sabemos el poder de la Iglesia Católica, probablemente no haya disminuido su control en la sociedad, pero al menos lo que hicieron estas personas al sacar un tema tan delicado haya prevenido sobre más casos o el desconocimiento de estos.

¿DE QUÉ VA?

Por la Gracia de Dios (Grâce à Dieu), la última película de François Ozon, narra cómo unas víctimas de pederastia de Lyon se unieron para crear La palabra liberada, una asociación que ha puesto a la Iglesia católica francesa contra las cuerdas. Los casos de abusos sexuales a niños eran conocidos desde los años ochenta pero nadie en la jerarquía eclesiástica hizo nada por impedirlos. El padre Preynat, con decenas de víctimas a sus espaldas, seguía dando misa y catequesis a niños en 2015. Un año más tarde, cuando el escándalo se hizo ya insostenible, el cardenal y arzobispo de Lyon Philippe Barbarin dio una rueda de prensa en Lourdes en la que pronunció la famosa frase que da título al filme: “Gracias a Dios, la mayoría de estos hechos están prescritos”.

BASADA EN HECHOS REALES

Bernard Preynat fue un cura que por el periodo de 1970 y 1980 estaba a cargo de una tropa de exploradores en Sainte-Foy-lès-Lyon, un poblado en Francia. Resulta que durante ese tiempo abusó sexualmente de decenas de niños y sus superiores ocultaron los hechos por años.

Finalmente en el verano del 2019, la Iglesia católica de Lyon informó que el tribunal decidió “aplicarle la pena máxima provista por la ley de la Iglesia para tal caso” ¿Qué es? La destitución del estado clerical. Por este caso, el arzobispo de Lyon, Philippe Barbarin, también fue acusado de encubrir este abuso sexual, caso que provocó una de las mayores crisis en la Iglesica católica. Por esto recibió seis meses de cárcel y provocó que presentara su renuncia ante el Papa Francisco, solicitud que fue rechazada.

LA VERDAD QUE TODOS INTENTAN ESCONDER

Por la Gracia de Dios ha vuelto las miradas sobre el director francés durante la Berlinale, no solo por la expectativa respecto a la forma en que abordara el tema desde lo audiovisual, sino especialmente por la compleja coyuntura que la rodea.

Los hechos reales que narra son suficientemente duros como para que el espectador se sienta interesado y emocionalmente afectado. La inteligencia de François Ozon ha sido contar la historia desde el punto de vista de verdaderos creyentes, que respetan la Iglesia y que practican su religión día a día. A través de actores carismáticos del cine francés, Melvil Poupaud, Denis Ménochet, Swann Arlaud o Éric Caravaca, el cineasta despliega en los 135 minutos del metraje una verdadera habilidad narrativa utilizando diferentes géneros.

¿VALE LA PENA?

Por Gracia de Dios consigue momentos de gran cine desde la sutileza, alejándose del morbo y apegándose a la pasión y trabajo de un grupo de periodistas que luchó contra todo un sistema para sacar a la luz una historia negra, convirtiéndose en un film inteligente y atrapante.
