The crime occurred at the Delicias Cinema, where a prostitute was murdered in the projection room, strangled with movie tape while the public attended a premiere of Gilda. She lives on the films she is told.

Todo lo que dicen es puro cuento" When discussing a movie about Shanghai presumably Josef von Sternberg's The Shanghai Gesture , Dani comments, "a m los sitios, cuando los veo en una peli, me parece que no son de verdad" This metafilmic comment echoes Isabel's remark in Erice's first film.

El espritu de la colmena, that everything in movies is a lie, and it also relates to Forcat's statement that "decir la verdad a veces no sirve de nada. Even so, Erice's script still demythifies this character. When El Dens asks for Kim's whereabouts, and Susana tells him he is in Shanghai, his choice of words reveals the fictitious nature of Forcat's version of events: "Pero quin te ha contado ese cuento, preciosa?

His allegation is stronger than in the original, as he accuses Kim of stealing his wife and of denouncing his maquis companions. Susana points to physical proof of Kim's trip to Shanghai--the dress, the post-cards--in order to, in the words of the script, "agarrarse a un ultimo resquicio de verdad" Denis, however, points to tangible proof of his own--Forcat's hands , thus paralleling Dani's earlier accusation.

In a beautiful visual transformation, Susana gets under her bedcovers, and when Dens uncovers her, her hair, which had been up in a bun, is now loose, and the tears she sheds when discovering the truth cause her white makeup to disappear: "su imagen de oriental se desvanece" The narrative point of view that is so important in determining the truth takes a new twist in Erice's script. Dani's mother Rosa destroys Dani's myth regarding his father, which was represented by a seminal recurring image of the film, the dead Republican soldier in the snow: "No s de dnde has sacado t este cuento de la trinchera y la nieve Pues no es verdad" The script manifests points of view that are both limited and conflictive regarding the events surrounding Denis's death: "Desde alguna ventana o balcn cercano, ms de un vecino sigue tambin con curosidad lo que est pasando.

Es Forcat quien abre, pero no tiene tiempo de decir nada. El Dens empuja la puerta y penetra en el interior. Desde la calle se le oye gritar Pronto es evidente que una fuerte discussion tiene lugar en la torre.

La seguimos sempre desde la calle, compartiendo el punto de vista de los vecinos del barrio. We hear two shots; after Dens stumbles into the garden, Forcat appears and shoots him three times.

The narrator explains that much later, Anita tried to clarify details of what had occurred, negating the gossip that circulated: "No, no es verdad lo que se dice por ah Her clarification that Forcat had opened the door leads to a flashback in Scene in which there is a shift in point of view, and we now see events on the inside of the house.

When Forcat confronts Dens over Susana, Dens beats him with his walking stick. The original two shots that come from the darkness of the hallway is clarified by Anita: "Lo nico que hizo mi nia fue defenderse" Forcat again shoots Dens in the garden.

Consequently, Erice shows this episode from two different points of view--exterior and interior. When Dani later discusses the events with Doa Conxa, she reinforces the ambiguity of the situation, saying that Anita "un da cuenta una cosa y al siguiente otra.

Yo no s cul es la verdad" The narrator's rhetorical question as to whether he would be able to ask Susana who shot Forcat maintains us in suspense Unlike in the novel and the Trueba film, Susana and Dani look at each other when he goes to the movies, but words unspoken leave an ambiguous meaning: "Se trata de un cruce de miradas cuyo sentido ltimo permanence abierto" The intertextuality of Erice's choice for the film being shown.

La gran ilusin, provides a poetic touch to the ambiguity regarding truth and fiction, which Erice complicates when music from the Renoir film accompanies images on screen that show the thirteen-year-old Susana dressed in her chipao on board the Veracruz. The narrator's final words, "Entonces yo an no saba que a pesar de crecer y por mucho que uno mire hacia el futuro, uno crece siempre hacia el pasado, en busca tal vez del primer deslumbramiento" precede the final image of the dead Republican soldier, now covered completely with snow Perhaps the process of moving from illusion to disillusion is an inevitable part of becoming an adult.

The other character whose point of view is important in the Mars novel and Trueba adaptation, Blay, also changes in the Erice version. To begin with, Erice radically changes the narrative order regarding Blay's initial appearance. In both the opening scene of the novel and the Trueba film, Capitn Blay smells something bad; in Erice's Promesa, this does not occur until scene 33 page ; here, he attributes it to the plague, and the Sancho-like Dani informs the quixotic Blay that the smell emanates from the chimney of the Plexiglas factory.

There are strong intertextual resonances in this relationship to both the Lazarillo and the Quixote, and Blay becomes an even more quixotic--and pathetic--figure in Erice's version. Erice even refers to Blay and Dani as "el caballero y el escudero" , and there is dialogue that inspired by Don Quixote's episode of the galley slaves There is quixotic pathos in two scenes in which Blay suffers physical violence at the hands of representatives of authority: a municipal policeman who beats Blay when the Captain shouts that the information published in the newspaper Solidaridad nacional is all lies ; and Blay, as if battling windmills, shouts at the factory, calling the owner "asesino de inocentes," which results in the guard throwing him to the ground In addition, Erice underscores Blay's point of view and the act of seeing through a significant change in a prop.

Unlike in the novel, where the Captain complains that at the very least, they could have returned his dead son's binoculars, in this script Blay wears binoculars when he goes out walking with Dani 85, 89, 91, 96, , , It is on this outing that Dani hears Capitn Blay identify himself with his real name In the next scene Scene , Blay dies When he finally "sees" the truth, it is too much for him.

Creo que algo que se escapa y que es lo ms importante. La fidelidad o infidelidad es secundaria y carece de inters.

Lo que importa es el punto de vista, la mirada, la respiracin, el aire de la escena" my emphasis Garca Author Mars was certainly happy with Trueba's adaptation, calling it "un peliculn" and "espectacular" Luzn 44 , and saying that it is the best screen adaptation of any of his novels. Using the Russian formalists' terms, certainly Trueba's film more closely follows both the plot sjuzet and the story fabula of the original novel than Erice's "promise.

Jos Belmonte Serrano affirms that Mars's El embrujo de Shanghai contains "una prosa modlica, labrada a cincel," and calls it "una obra con la que Juan Mars lleg a reafirmarse como uno de los escritores en lengua espaola ms importantes de la segunda mitad del siglo veinte" 19, 5.

Likewise, Trueba's quality adaptation reaffirms him as one of the most important Spanish film-makers today. Erice's rendition would undoubtedly have been as excellent as his previous works, and the publication of La promesa de Shanghai adds to Erice's prominent position in contemporary Spanish culture.

Unlike the novel and the Trueba version, Erice adds an accent to the name Dens. Forcat's tale of Kim's adventure in Shanghai occupies the following pages since some pages have both the main narrative and the embedded narrative, I have used decimal points to show at approximately what point of the page the latter begins : ; ; ; Regarding Mars's Si te dicen que ca, Diane Garvey believes that "We can only conclude that the boys who make up the aventis are just as fictional as the aventis themselves.

The focus is placed on the process of storytelling" John Austin notes that texts have three fundamental aspects: the locutionary aspect is grammatical; the illocutionary aspect is what sentences intend to do; and the perlocutionary aspect is what they in fact do 99 ff.

Asmis argues that Socrates "relies on the etymology of the term psychagogia to reveal its underlying, true meaning, 'guidance of the soul. The choice of Gil to play Madam Chen shows the importance of the star system in cinema. Trueba justifies his casting of Ariadna Gil in the double role of Anita and Madame Chen: "Cuando me ofrecen el proyecto, vuelvo a leer la novela y lo primero que pienso es que Anita, la madre, tiene que ser Chen; que los nios ponen la cara de la madre en el cuento y que eso es una forma adems de unir las dos historias" Garca This recalls Vicente Aranda's choice of casting Victoria Abril in multiple roles in his film adaptation of Mars's Si te dicen que ca, but in that case, the original text called for it.

During the spring of , the only Spanish film to open in more cinemas in Madrid was Almodvar's Hable con ella, in twentyfour. This symbol may be based on a visual image from the novel. When Kim encounters Omar with Madam Chen, the narrator describes "un nido de cojines de raso, sbanas revueltas y lentas espirales de humo" Kozloff notes that "heterodiegetic voice-over narrators speak only intermittently and do not mediate every moment of the story.


Such narrators, along with the accompanying scenic presentation, are actually transmitted by the narrative agency I call the image-maker" The concept of "chronotope" is from M. Bakhtin The marvelous portrayal of Blay by this veteran actor led novelist Mars to muse, "estara dispuesto a afirmar que Fernando Fernn-Gmez era ya de algn modo el capitn Blay desde mucho antes de publicarse la novela," and he notes that from the very day that the film project was conceived, the veteran actor was the unanimous choice for the role Mars "Algo ms" There is an associative relationship between this role and Fernn-Gmez's portrayal of the "mole" in Mambr se fue a la Guerra The slight transformation in the movie, when Susana points the pistol to her chest and Dani exclaims, "Pero qu haces?

The image appears in scenes 5 [in Dani's artistic rendition], 18 ending chapter 1 35 ending chapter 3 52 ending chapter 4 , and Before Erice was terminated by Gmez, Mars stated, "El guin de Erice es una pieza literaria extraordinaria. He seguido todo el proceso de su creacin.

Erice vino varias veces a Barcelona y hablamos mucho del tema, cambiamos bastantes impresiones", dice. Tena que ver con la novela, pero parta de un enfoque diferente, muy interesante" Hermoso s. Trueba notes, "Se trata de una serie de personajes desamparados, con las vidas rotas, que crean una ficcin de familia y logran un instante de felicidad. Pero como todas las cosas hermosas, se acaba" www.

His role as maquis is emphasized early on by references to his distribution of incendiary pamphlets exhorting workers in Catalan to fight for social justice, the subsequent police persecution scenes 10, 11 , and characters offer differing opinions about him Forcat: T no crees que el Kim est all?

Their love story reflects all the contradictions of an shajghai, the splendour and misery of the social classes, the naivety of easy commitment, and the bitterness and resentment of losers, those inhabitants of an inner exile in which, forged by so many defeats, they still dream like children.

Forcat again shoots Dens in the garden. Shortly after the novel was published in , Spanish producer Andrs Vicente Gmez acquired the screen rights to the work, and when it was announced that the director for the project would be Vctor Erice, many people eagerly awaited the screen adaptation, because Erice's previous three films are each considered a masterpiece.

Consequently, the director always felt that the film was unfinished. As a young teenager, one of the important coming-of-age themes is sex, and the film expands on and visually exploits motifs that are hinted at in the novel.

Called "el hombre invisible" in the novel, he is a sort of "mole," or a Republican who lives in hiding from the repressive Franco regime. Sign in with Facebook Other Sign in options.
