How does a film like Ragazzi fit in Raúl Perrone’s filmography? How is the figure and work of Pasolini encompassed in the play of ghosts from this new stage in the career of the filmmaker from the locality of Ituzangó? Ragazzi is a film in two movements. The first one, freely inspired in Pasolini’s death/murder, narrates a day in the life of a teenager who ends up becoming involved with a figure that fits the profile of the Italian author, poet and filmmaker. Of course, all of this takes place in Ituzaingó and Pasolini is never mentioned. The second part has a shift in tone, rendering it solar: shot in the province of Córdoba, in a stream inhabited by another group of ragazzi, it follows the everyday activities of these kids (jumping in the river, swimming, smoking, jumping again, and so on) as though the surroundings were an abandoned paradise, between possible salvation and absolute collapse. There is a couple of beautiful women that seem like apparitions, spirits that summon these kids from some erotic beyond. And all of this goes into a blender of images and sound almost becomes an apotheosis. The ending of Ragazzi is probably the most beautiful moment in Perrone’s entire filmography. DL
