Antropólogos de mentirita 10: EVELYN CARNAHAN de "The Mummy"


Ya desde chiquita tuve fascinación por el antiguo Egipto, como calculo que todos los que alguna vez quisieron estudiar arqueología, por lo que me fascinan también las películas sobre la temática aunque sean un "mamarracho" histórico.
Uno de estos "mamarrachos" definitivamente es "La Momia" en su versión de 1999. Como no podia ser de otra manera, esta película consiguió tener 2 secuelas "La Momia regresa" (2001) y la próxima a estrenar "La momia 3: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" (2008) y presenta una egiptóloga de mentirita, Evy Carnahan.
Lo primero que me surge es cómo se parece Carnahan a Carnavon, el Lord que puso la plata para la expedición de Lord Howard Carter y el subsiguiente descubrimiento de la tumba de Tut-ankh-amon (y también víctima fatal de la "Maldición de los faraones").
La película también está ambientada en principio de los años veinte que calculo era la época de gloria de la egiptología ya que los ingleses tenian piedra libre para excavar lo que fuese en momentos del protectorado (léase: ocupación británica).
Evy Carnahan es una egiptóloga que más que nada se pasa sus dias en la biblioteca desordenando más que haciendo su trabajo, pero con una gran sed de aventuras. Como buena intelectual no para de citar cosas que leyó de los "Baimbridge Scholars" (la autoridad intelectual en egiptología ficcional) y se sabe toda la historia acerca de La Momia.
Esta momia, narra la voz en off, sufrió una terrible manera de pasar al más allá, el "Hom Dai", lo que permite, leyendo el pasaje correcto del libro de los muertos, resucitarla, y con ello también despertar la maldición, encarnada en las 10 plagas bíblicas. Como Evelyn sabe leer jeroglíficos, no tiene mejor idea que leer justo el pasaje indicado y despertar a Imhotep, a pesar de que le habian advertido varias veces que no lo hiciera, pero bueno, los cientificos somos testarudos a veces.
La película logra
1) Que haya (vaya, otra vez) una sociedad secreta + unos beduinos guerreros que protejen que no se despierte la momia.
2) Poner durante el período de reinado de Seti I (dinastía 19 ava) (1290-1279 a. C.) a un sacerdote de la 3a dinastia Imhotep (2650-2600 a. C.) y así desfasar la historia en más de mil años.
3) Usar el recurso de la "maldición" como para espantar a los que quieren explorar lo que no les corresponde.

Nota de paso:

* El libro de los muertos existe, pero no es un bodoque de un metal lleno de jeroglificos sino una serie de papiros que cuenta que sucede en "el más allá".

*La "maldición de los faraones" se dice no es tal, sino que se debe a la inhalación del hongo Aspergillus niger y Aspergillus flavus que cubren ciertas partes de las paredes de las tumbas y se volatilizaron al abrir la tumba de Tut-ankh-amun que estaba herméticamente sellada.

A pesar de todo esto bancamos a "La Momia" (porque es cool) y a Evelyn Carnahan, ya que dá el ejemplo y no va a saquear las tumbas como los otros personajes.

Dicen que dijeron, que muchos de los "malditos" por el rey Tut, se suicidaron o sufrieron fatales accidentes. A menos que el Aspergillus los haya empujado por una ventana del 6º piso, o pisado el acelerador del coche cuando el infortunado cruzaba la calle, para algunos la explicación científica, es un poco incompleta...
