Denis Villeneuve says of him that his gaze is that of a tiger. He states the following voracious and even cruel work him in Dune. In one of the latest films in it (Loving Pablo), he preferred that of the hippopotamus. For those of ferocity hidden in a friendly body, fluffy. In a good boss, Javier Bardem (Las Palmas, 1969) embodies, however, and so more than just memorable, a true chameleon. The character of him Mr. Blanco, owner of Scales White, is such a candid and friendly entrepreneur as bastard as tender as pitiless. The film of Fernando Leon de Aranoa, chosen by the Academy as a candidate for the Oscars, reaches the undercard this Friday 20 years after Mondays to the sun. If then Bardem gave life to an unemployed laborer now his role is the same, but just from the other side. It is identical and completely another. Anyway, tiger, hippopotamus or chameleon, yours is roaring. Always. To either side of the screen.
