Cold mountain

En 1960 René Clement dirigió la primera adaptación de ‘A pleno sol’ la famosa novela de Patricia Highsmith sobre las andanzas de Tom Ripley. El filme aupó la carrera de Alain Delon que, a priori, no parecía el actor más indicado para dar vida al personaje de Ripley aunque, lo cierto, es que su interpretación es magnífica y el filme una obra maestra.
La adaptación de Anthony Minghella, en cambio, cuenta con un casting que, probablemente, hubiese hecho las delicias de la escritora. Matt Damon está perfecto en la piel de ese personaje de aspecto apocado y orígenes humildes experto en el arte de la mentira y la falsificación, y Jude Law parece haber nacido para interpretar, sin esfuerzo alguno, al rico y guapo Greenleaf. Sin embargo, Minghella comete el error de recargar la historia de modo excesivo convirtiendo lo sutil en grotesco (todas las escenas dedicadas a «sugerir» la homosexual…

Screenwriter Paul Gégauff wrote a variation on the same story in 1968 when he worked on Les biches for Claude Chabrol. Highsmith’s source novel was adapted again in 1999 under the original title, The Talented Mr. Ripley.
Back on board, Tom hatches a plan to kill Philippe and steal his identity. First, he leaves evidence of Philippe’s philandering for an outraged Marge to find. After Marge goes ashore, Philippe confronts Tom, who admits his plan quite casually. Philippe, believing it to be a joke, plays along and asks Tom for the plan’s details. Suddenly frightened, Philippe offers Tom a substantial sum to leave him and Marge alone, but Tom states that he can obtain this sum anyway and far more. At last, pretending to accept his offer, Tom stabs Philippe as the latter screams Marge’s name. He casts the body overboard and returns to port.
Upon returning to shore, Tom informs Marge that Philippe has decided to stay behind. He then goes travelling around Italy using Philippe’s name and bank account, flawlessly mimicking his voice and mannerisms; in effect, Tom has become Philippe, even affixing his own photo, with seal, in Philippe’s passport. He rents a large suite in a Rome hotel.

Thomas Ripley is a fictional character in a series of crime novels by American novelist Patricia Highsmith, as well as several film adaptations. The character is an anti-hero: he is a career criminal, a con artist and serial killer. The five novels in which he appears—The Talented Mr. Ripley, Ripley Under Ground, Ripley’s Game, The Boy Who Followed Ripley, and Ripley Under Water, were published between 1955 and 1991.
Highsmith introduced Tom Ripley in The Talented Mr. Ripley (1955) as a young man making a meager living as a con artist. The novel also supplies him with a back story: orphaned at age five when his parents drowned, he was raised in Boston by his aunt Dottie, a cold, stingy woman who mocked him as a «sissy.» As a teenager, he attempted unsuccessfully to run away from his aunt’s home to New York City before finally moving there at age 20.
In The Talented Mr. Ripley, he is paid to go to Italy by Herbert Greenleaf, a shipbuilding magnate, to convince his son Dickie (a half-remembered acquaintance) to return to New York and join the family business. Ripley befriends the younger Greenleaf and falls in love with the rich young man’s indulgent, carefree lifestyle; he also becomes obsessed with Greenleaf himself. He eventually murders Greenleaf after the playboy tires of him and spurns his friendship. He then assumes Greenleaf’s identity, forging the signatures on his monthly remittances from a trust fund.

Al ver el escudo de su chaqueta Herbert Grrenleaf, propietario de unos grandes astilleros, y su esposa, asistentes a la fiesta se dirigen a él preguntándole si conoce a su hijo de Dickie, que era del curso del 56 como él, haciéndose pasar por amigo suyo, contándole sus padres que Dickie vive en Mongibello, un pueblecito italiano, siendo un apasionado del saxo y del jazz, mientras su novia, Marge, trata de escribir un libro.
