Luciferous :- Watch Luciferous on YoutubeonFire, Belgian director Gust Van den Berghe concludes his triptych on the emergence of human consciousness that began with Little Baby Jesus of Flandr and continued with Blue Bird, the enticingly titled Lucifer. Speaking of consciousness, a better-suited mythological figure in the Western canon would be hard to find. The script is adapted from a 1645 play of the same name written by Joost van den Vondel, from which, supposedly, John Milton drew inspiration for his Paradise Lost. Van den Berghe’s previous indigo-tinged film Blue Bird was also an adaptation of 1908’s symbolist play by Belgian literature Nobel Prize laureate Maurice Maeterlinck. The director keeps the classic three-act structure, introducing each act with a particular title, Paradise, Sin and Miracle, that bears more figurative than literal meaning. A ladder hangs from the sky. On his way downtown, so to speak, Lucifer (Gabino Rodríguez) stops in an earthly paradise of an inconspicuous rural Mexican village, where Lupita (María Acosta) and her granddaughter Maria (Norma Pablo) live their modest lives. They tend to sheep in a day-by-day routine while Lupita´s brother Emanuel (Jeronimo Soto Bravo) pretends to be a cripple so he can avoid any work whatsoever, and gamble and drink all day long. Lucifer smells a chance in this household and puts on a Samaritan-healer mask to conjure a miracle of his own, fraud to fraud. Van den Berghe subverts a notorious tableaux from Christian iconography, bypassing pitfalls of flat blasphemy or sacrilege.
