Amy: the girl behind the name

amy1

Tre soli giorni nelle sale cinematografiche italiane. La permanenza del docufilm di Asif Kapadia su Amy Winehouse sui grandi schermi ha la durata di un soffio, breve quanto lo è stato il tempo in cui questa splendida icona del soul bianco ha cantato. Mi sono precipitata a vederlo, nella serata del primo passaggio. Un lavoro molto ben costruito che si compone di filmati, in parte anche inediti, fotografie, interviste, testimonianze rilasciate da amici, genitori, marito. Soprattutto i primi, nelle voci delle care Lauren Gilbert e Juliette Ashby, e di Nick Shymansky, adorato manager. Padre e madre raccontano meno: l’uomo compare più volte ma ne esce in un ritratto “macchiato” di noncuranza. Per questo la famiglia si è completamente dissociata dal docufilm. Non importa in fondo: nel mercato editoriale esistono svariate biografie della cantante e tra queste, a soli due anni dalla morte, compare quella curata dal padre, Amy, mia figlia. (Per una bibliografia completa delle opere in commercio si veda qui.)Sicuramente in quelle pagine avrà raccontato la sua versione della storia.


La potenza della figura della Winehouse emerge in maniera direttamente proporzionale alla sua infinita fragilità. Ragazza schietta, vivace (la madre confessa di aver avuto difficoltà nel gestirla, fin da piccola), capace di grandi slanci emotivi ed emozionali, e impaurita. Tanto.

La scoperta del talento e il pronostico di un futuro successo da parte di chi le gravita intorno, la terrorizza. “Potrei impazzire”, dice, perfettamente conscia delle sue debolezze psicologiche. Purtroppo non si sbagliava affatto, e le sue insicurezze e debolezze sono caricate dall’atteggiamento di una famiglia che ha dato scarsa importanza a ciò che le stava accadendo, sottovalutando la bulimia di cui era ammalata e concorrendo con un comportamento impreparato alla non risolutiva guarigione della sua dipendenza da alcool, eroina, crack a cui il marito l’aveva condotta. Blake Fielder-Civil è un “personaggio” che odi, quando esci da quella sala. Tossico fin nell’animo, profittatore. Conduce Amy alla rovina, concorre alla non riuscita dei periodi di rehab.

E d’altra parte, lei vi è dentro fino al collo.”Com’è noioso senza droghe”, dice a Juliette subito

 dopo la vittoria del Record of the year al Grammy, consegnatole dal suo mito Tony Bennett. Così ha chiosato l’evento, in disparte, all’amica. Quel giorno così importante. Il successo corre in contemporanea con percorsi riabilitativi variamente interrotti, serate distruttive, la derisione mediatica, concerti stonati da alcool e droghe.

Impotenti assistiamo alla parabola di una grande giovane artista che tanto ha dato e ancora tanto avrebbe saputo regalarci. Con la voce, in parole e musica.

E si rimane lì, seduti, fino a quando l’ultimo titolo di coda scompare sulle note di una sua struggente canzone.
