José Sacristán: Being actor is not something competitive

As "the superior mother of the convent in which we all profession", in the words of his partner and presenter of the act, Aitana Sánchez-Gijón, José Sacristán has received the National Cinematography Award on Monday. The Minister of Culture, Miquel Iceta, has described the delivery of "Repairman and that was a long time ago".

"Today we reward a breed comedian," he said ICETA, who has also said that the look offered by his films "defines us, differentiates us and gives us identity." He has also highlighted his filmography with directors such as Pedro Lazaga or Saénz de Heredia, with whom he harvested commercial successes, but also 'a man called Fall of Fall' (Pedro Olea) and 'El Deputy' (Eloy of the Church) "Two films Precursors of sexual liberties, which personally appreciates ".

With "an increasingly powerful voice", with "the complexity of which it knows how to add, without complexes" and with a "deep respect for your profession and your example a mirror in which to see ourselves reflected," Sacristán is worthy of the award, according to ICETA .

In his grateful speech, the actor has remembered when, as a child, he picked up chicken feathers into his head so that his grandmother would scream: "Virgin Santa, an Indian!". And that what he thought then is what he has repeated during all these years giving voice and life to characters: "They have believed it."

Because, as Nietzsche said, "there is no greater seriousness than the child when he plays," Sacristan has "more than 60 years without stopping playing," according to his words. "I have come up here, making my way to walking, on the fly, curious, with as much certainty as restlessness." And, on some occasions, without worrying about it so much for "unraveling the complexity of the characters but by seeing how hard ones came at the end of the month."

"I would have been enough for the impossible outside," Caligula said as he asked for the moon. And that phrase has served Sacristan to go back: "Every time I upload to a stage I feel the feathers of the chicken tied to my head. And then the impossible is. And I have the moon. And the spectators too."

The actor has had a special dedication for his wife, Amparo ("Thank you for being there. I do everything possible to be there too") and it has been dismissed with a phrase from 'Quixote': "If I could take my heart and put it before the Eyes of your greatness, here on this table and on a plate, remove the work into my tongue to say what can barely think ".

Then, in an aside with the press, he has highlighted that "it is not advisable for health walking pending if they give you a prize. In the end I know I dedicate myself to something that is not competitive; you know who comes first to the goal , who puts more goals, but who is the best in this, because no: someone decides. "

He has also joked what he is going to do with the 30,000 euros of the prize: "I do not know what to do with money, I have the door doors that do not even open from the bright and mink there are everywhere."

And it has had a few words for the public and theater artists, for their fidelity and work during the pandemic: "With 'Lady of Red on Gray Background' we have three years and the response of the people is great. It is healthy and necessary This need of the meeting, a certain therapy that is the one that provides the show, culture ".
