“Fast and Furious X” debuts in cinemas: the beginning of the end of the road is led with Daniela Melchior

The key in the ignition is the trigger that makes the engine rumble over the tarmac. With an eye at the end of a road that has been going on for more than two decades, and another in a rearview mirror that reflects a past that reappears, Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) drove parallel to the tracks of those who with and against him join the race. A road is still yours but — at the same time that it leaves space for the generations that follow it — sees his legacy trampled by a vengeance that sinks under the accelerator. The hands that rest firmly on the steering wheel are by Dante (Jason Mamoa), which puts the first change in anticipation of the end. This is the principle.

“Fast X” is the tenth installment in the saga and occupies, from this Thursday, the big screens of movie theaters, to but continuity to what was hanging in the crossing of the curtains of the fifth film: the death of villain Hernan Reyes, a Brazilian drug dealer (played by Portuguese actor Joaquim de Almeida) who leaves his son Dante with no one, but with the fervent taste of what he plans to avenge. As death would be mercifulinstead, pursues the features that Dom drew on a route on tires, mapping the path for those you love most. It is this fear that drives you. The dynamic of father and son builds the narrative.

Amid fireworks that echo in the skies of Rio de Janeiro, Isabel got out of a car painted in a Brazilian yellow, whose lines write a story that cohabits in parallel – two windows away – with that of Dom. “Its grand entrance, its space and place to shine”, describes the person who wears its skin to Expresso: Daniela Melchior.

The plot unfolds with an explosion in Italy, at the Vatican – the meeting point between the two antagonists, who meet for the first time. But Dante has spent the last ten years studying Dom’s life down to the smallest detail, forcing him to make choices. The first takes place in Brazil, which welcomes him as if he were part of the furniture, but you only feel at home after meeting Isabel. Amidst fireworks echoing in the skies of Rio de Janeiro, I got out of a car painted in a Brazilian yellow, giving it a nationality, but it is in the lines of the model that drives that a story is written that cohabits in parallel – two windows away – like Dom’s. “Its grand entrance, its space and place to shine”, describes to Expresso who wears its skin: Daniela Melchior.

He was four years old when the first film in the saga was released, and his first memory of “Fast and Furious” is that of an equally grand entrance. “I remember wanting to be as cute as Suki,” he laughs.. Dressed in pink tones, which pigmented the car from which she got out. “Everything to match”, continues the Portuguese actress, who now gives life to a femininity that is not seen in the yellow of your vehicle, because it is discreetly hidden in the hardness of a street racer who carries the past in her eyes. And it was in them, drawn in a smile, that Dom found out: before becoming a family, Isabel already was..

For Daniela Melchiorbeyond the tunings of the cars, the “pillar” and the recipe that unites fans in time is the same: “Family is what brings people to the movies.” The same place where your name appears in the credits alongside a luxurious cast cherished by the general public. “I still tremble”he confesses, while facing the expectation with some curiosity and identifying this feeling as a pride transformed into adrenaline.

“It happens a lot that you need to be recognized outside to suddenly have some kind of validation inside”

He cannot explain why, but he says that “it goes by fast” — at a speed perhaps similar to that which guides the story immediately embraced by the actress, who sees herself starred in the world. A recognition that she never imagined in Portugal, she even says she finds it “impossible” to exist in the same dimension without working “out there”. In the “little” Portugal, what would be the chance? “It happens a lot that you need to be recognized outside to suddenly have some kind of validation inside.” As for the script from which he takes the words of “his” Isabel, he confesses to Expresso how easy it was to say yes. “From the first time I read it, I believed what I was saying.” He points out that at the time of the cut, the feelings remain there — he has already learned to detach himself from the characters, undressing some and dressing others. “But at that moment, I believe it”, he concludes.
