About this item

Una novela vertiginosa sobre un cineasta megalómano y su guionista cautivo, a quien obliga a escribirle una obra maestra. Un thriller intelectual escrito en forma de diario. Hasta ahora, Pablo ha sido aspirante a novelista y luego aspirante a guionista. Hasta ahora. Porque ahora sí escribe guiones. Guiones de éxito. Lleva dos en cuatro años. Lo ha secuestrado Santiago Salvatierra, «el más grande director de cine latinoamericano de todos los tiempos». Lo tiene confinado en el sótano de su mansión de campo. El tercer guion ha de cambiar la historia del cine. Ha de elevar a Salvatierra a lo más alto. A codearse con Fellini, Bergman y Kurosawa. Pero algo sucede. Lo cuenta Pablo en su diario de cautiverio. Un cuaderno que escribe de madrugada y tacha y esconde antes de que empiece el día. Un diario que lo quiere narrar todo. Todo. -------«Vos me estás ayudando, Pablo, dijo. Eso es todo lo que hacés. Me ayudás. Tenés el privilegio de ayudarme, y de esa manera sos parte de un suceso histórico. Nadie hace nada por mí en mis películas. Yo lo hago todo. Incluso las actúo. Yo las ilumino, y las edito, y les compongo la música, y les diseño el vestuario y el sonido. El resto me ayuda. Son mis ayudantes. Porque no se puede hacer una película completamente solo. Menos una película que va a cambiar la historia del cine mundial-------ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONA dramatic novel about a megalomaniac filmmaker and his captive screenwriter, who he forces to write a masterpiece. An intellectual thriller written in diary format.   Until now, Pablo was an aspiring novelist and then an aspiring screenwriter. Until now. Because now, he does write scripts. Successful scripts. He’s written two in four years. He has been kidnapped by Santiago Salvatierra, “the greatest Latin-American film director of all time.”   He is imprisoned in the basement of his country estate. The third script must change the history of film. It must elevate Salvatierra completely: to the ranks of Fellini, Bergman, and Kurosawa. But something happens. Pablo tells about it in his captivity diary. A notebook that he writes in at dawn, then crosses out and hides before the day begins. A diary that wants to tell all. Everything. “You are helping me, Pablo,” he said. “That is all you do. You help me. You have the privilege of helping me, and in that way you are part of a historic event. Nobody does anything for me in my films. I do it all. I even act in them. I light them, and edit them, and I compose the music, and I design the costumes and the sound. The rest just help me. They are my helpers. Because you can’t make a movie all by yourself, much less a movie that will change the history of
