TV meteorologist Phil Connors travels to Punxsutawney for a festivity, Groundhog Day (2/2), a traditional celebration in the US and Canada in which this animal acts as meteorologist, because according to folklore, it is able to determine if the winter to come will be soft or harsh. That day comes to an end, and Phil Connors goes to sleep; the next day, he relives the same February 2 nd with the memory of having lived it, while the rest of the world lives it for the first time. If this plot sounds new to you, it means you haven’t seen this masterpiece yet. If you do know it, you will also know that this –maybe Borgean– comedy written by Danny Rubin, directed by Harold Ramis and starring Bill Murray may perhaps formulate –with a fantastical twist that is never explained, with realistic tone and form and with some wise mise en scene decisions– a way of understanding the American dream, one in which the hero, as it happens in westerns, has to succeed in becoming better because they come from fault.
