Recomienda | Stranger Things

Julio ha sido el mes del mame en este 2016 y no, no hablo de Pokémon Go ni de la disculpa de su-majestad-mirreynal por su cochina casa blanca. Hablo de Stranger Things, la más reciente y afortunada producción de Netflix.

Es probable que ya la hayas visto, pero si no, deberías echarle un ojo. ¿Por qué? Porque si viviste tu infancia en los ochenta te sentirás identificado y conmovido, es como revivir tus aventuras y locuras al lado de tu fiel pandilla de cuates. Es una serie con un target muy bien definido y Stranger Things nos vende nostalgia pura, toda lo que puedas necesitar, desde lo visual, lo cultural, lo musical. La serie interpela directamente a nuestro niño interior y muchos lo sentimos como parte de nuestra historia. Encontrarás muchas referencias incluyendo Dungeons & Dragons, Star Wars y Lord of the Rings. Da la sensación de ser una película muy larga por lo que puedes echarte encadenadamente todos los episodios en un día, aunque recomiendo dosificarlo en un fin de semana.

Se ha dicho de todo sobre la Stranger Things en las redes sociales: que es la obra bastarda de Stephen King y Spielberg -hay quienes aseguran que es un homenaje a estos autores-, que ha plagiado a toda la generación ochentera -eso del “otro lado” me recuerda mucho a Illusion of Gaia y a ¿Will?-. En efecto la serie tiene una estética y ambiente al estilo Stand by Me, E.T.,  It y Super 8: la época, el pueblillo pintoresco-boscoso-all_american, canosos agentes secretos del gobierno y el hecho de que la amistad es la fuerza que guía a los personajes y es su recurso más grande en contra de las adversidades y sus antagonistas sobrenaturales.

Es la historia de un grupo de amigos nerds -ya saben, los niños listillos y alternativos que se encuentran en cada escuela primaria, esos que sufren bullying a cada rato-, del cómo uno de ellos –Will– desaparece bajo condiciones muy extrañas, del cómo los demás al buscarle se encuentran con una misteriosa niña con facultades insólitas y cómo esos eventos comienzan a revelar que su pueblo chico está lleno de secretos. La trama se desarrolla en medio del misterio, el drama, la ciencia-ficción, leve romance, la acción y la aventura. Podremos ver momentos de conmovedora inocencia y ternura infantil contrastados con el desenfreno adolescente y el pesar adulto. La historia principal está tejida por tres arcos y estos se presentan muy bien acomodados a lo largo de toda la serie. Quizá uno de los elementos más interesantes es ver que si la serie no se situara en 1982 carecería de sentido ya que las limitaciones tecnológicas de la época y las formas culturales y sociales son vitales para el desarrollo de la historia.

Creo que una de las grandes virtudes de la serie se encuentra en el reparto, el grupo de chicos está perfectamente seleccionado y resulta completamente verosímil y equilibrado, su apariencia e interpretación es honesta y natural y no acartonada como en las series de Disney Channel donde hacen ver a los niños como tontos e insoportables engendros que no paran de decir pendejadas con un lenguaje apto para la familia. Mike, Lucas y Dustin dicen tantas groserías como tú a esa edad. Igualmente aplica para los personajes adolescentes, ya que no son el típico modelo al que nos han acostumbrado los medios en la última década, sino que trascienden el estereotipo. Los personajes adultos son los roles de siempre -el alguacil del pueblo, la madre que sufre por su hijo perdido y la familia nuclear modelo estadounidense-, pero están muy bien logrados.

¿Te acuerdas que antes de 1997 todos fumaban en la televisión y el cine? Pues aquí es igual, verás cigarrillos y humo todo el tiempo -no sé si sea por ser fiel a la época o porque de plano Netflix se pasó las leyes de consumo de sustancias en TV por el arco del triunfo-, si eres fumador, te recomiendo tener un paquete al lado y si no fumas, no lo hagas, no es buena idea que empieces ahora.

Recomiendo ampliamente la serie. A mis contemporáneos les encantará esa nostalgia y los más jóvenes podrán ver todo lo que se perdieron por haber nacido en otro siglo.

  2. In the great design of things you’ll secure a B+ just for effort. Where exactly you actually misplaced me ended up being in all the particulars. You know, they say, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be more true here. Having said that, let me tell you exactly what did work. Your text is definitely pretty engaging and this is most likely why I am taking an effort in order to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, despite the fact that I can certainly notice the leaps in reasoning you make, I am not really confident of exactly how you appear to connect your ideas which in turn help to make your conclusion. For the moment I shall yield to your point but trust in the near future you link the dots much better.
