Dorian Gray (film di Oliver Parker del 2009)

Un po’ thriller, un po’ fantasy e anche horror: DORIAN GRAY, film diretto da Oliver Parker nel 2009, è un misto di questi generi cinematografici.

Tratto dal romanzo di Oscar Wilde pubblicato nel 1890 e remake del film prodotto nel 1945, vede protagonista Ben Barnes nei panni di Dorian, insieme ad una spalla di prestigio come Colin Firth che interpreta Lord Henry Wotton. Siamo in Inghilterra in piena epoca vittoriana: Dorian Gray è un ragazzo bello ed ingenuo, fresco erede del patrimonio del nonno. Lord Henry Wotton lo prende sotto la propria ala protettrice instradandolo alla dissolutezza. Al pittore Basil Hallward viene commissionato il ritratto del giovane e Dorian afferma, senza immaginare le atroci conseguenze, che egli rimarrà sempre giovane mentre sarà il proprio ritratto ad invecchiare, stipulando così un orribile patto col demonio. Dorian si innamora di una giovane attrice che, avendo saputo dei tradimenti di quest’ultimo, si uccide. Dorian è sempre più spudorato con le donne, le quali si lasciano sedurre dal suo fascino mefistofelico. Basil ha intuito della pericolosità del quadro e lo vorrebbe distruggere, ma Dorian intuisce tutto e lo uccide occultandone il cadavere. Il ragazzo va via per 25 anni ed al ritorno troverà tutti invecchiati, ma egli avrà l’aspetto di sempre. Conosce la figlia di Henry e tra i 2 nasce del tenero, chiaramente non condiviso dal Lord. L’unica cosa da fare è distruggere quel diabolico ritratto, ormai ridotto ad un qualcosa di orribile.

Film realizzato con una trama efficace grazie agli interpreti ben collocati, DORIAN GRAY trasmette quel fascino gotico che le musiche di Charlie Mole rafforzano.
