Whoever Slew Auntie Roo?- Resenha



Whoever Slew Auntie Roo? (AKA Who Slew Auntie Roo?), 1971
Direção: Curtis Harrington

Sinopse:

Na véspera do natal, crianças orfãs são selecionadas
por bom comportamento para comemorá-lo na casa
de uma senhora solitária que perdeu a filha anos antes
em um misterioso acidente. Em meio as comemorações,
dois orfãos rebeldes que conseguiram entrar na casa
se escondendo no porta malas do carro, se deparam com
estranhos encontros, bizarros acontecimentos e macabros
segredos guardados a sete chaves.


Crítica:

O diretor Curtis Harrington é um pássaro raro. Respeitado
curta metragista de vanguarda, estreiou no mundo dos
longas, trabalhando sob a batuta do Roger Corman, com a
excelente fantasia Night Tide. No final dos anos sessenta
e começo dos setenta cria uma série de thrillers estilosos
e idiossincráticos (na falta de uma definição adequada) que,
se por um lado lhe rendeu elogios e um cult following, por
outro o afastou do público mainstream.
Whoever Slew Auntie Roo
é uma releitura moderna do fa-
moso conto de fada João e Maria e durante os noventa
minutos o filme é salpicado com citações do texto original.
Durante sua duração, o filme demonstra uma maravilhosa ri-
queza tonal, alternando momentos que vão do puro horror,
passando por grand guinol, doçura e ternura e humor negro
(destaque para a hilária cena de uma sessão mediúnica fake, em
que se usa um urso de pelúcia como "fio espiritual condutor"
para contato com uma garotinha morta!!!!)
Se por um lado seus filmes às vezes pecam por falta de ritmo
(Auntie Roo não é exceção), por outro Harrington se supera
no departamento artístico (apesar de ser visivelmente uma pro-
dução financeiramente modesta, o filme tem forte apelo
visual com excelentes sets e figurinos que atestam o bom gosto
diretor) e excelente direção de atores.Todo o elenco, sem exce-
ção, dá um show, mas a atuação da Shelley Winters, no papel de
uma pertubada e semi-psicótica coroa solitária, é um caso a parte
(ela tambèm dá um show de interpretação em What's the Matter With Helen?).
Parte suspense, parte thriller, parte fantasia infantil, parte espetáculo grand guinol e parte comédia negra, Whoever Slew Antie Roo não é
o melhor filme do Curtis Harrington (Games e What's the Matter With Helen? são melhores), muito menos filme para mudar os rumos do cinema, mas é cinema de qualidade, produto de uma mente idiossincrática com uma visão muito particular sobre cinema.

Cotação: **** de *****

Eu amooo esse filme que assisti pela primeira vez na tv record quando eu tinha 8 anos de idade.Nunca o esqueci e passei anos a fio a procura dele.Atormentei a rede record para reprisarem e nada mas, de tanto insistir encontrei-o( uma verdadeira pérola , em VHS, da glbo vídeo). Passei para dvd.É um doa meus filmes amdos do coração!!! Amo as passagens secretas da casa, o quarto da menina morta...tudo!
Bem, vim assisti-lo novamente depois de 21 anos de procura...
Ahhh..não se acha em locadoras , nada em português. Só há o DVD no amazon.com. O q consegui foi mesmo num acaso, sorte, com um colecionador de filmes antigos.
ramon está certo: o nome em português é Quem espancou Tia Roo mas a globo vídeo editou com outro nome: "Fábula Macabra", este é o nome q consta do VHS.
