Is 'Skyfall' telling us that, like Bond, Europe should to go back to its roots for regeneration?
article by
Patricia Vieira

Skyfall, the new installment of the James Bond movie series, is already one of the most successful films of 2012. It was the highest grossing movie of the year thus far in the United Kingdom, where it was released on October 26, and has grossed more than any other Bond movie in the United States since its debut on November 8.

Yet, the film lacks some of the trademark ingredients of the Bond series: It features surprisingly few high-tech gadgets, a relatively terse display of Alpha-male sexuality on the part of Bond (Daniel Craig) and, most of all, a Bond-girl (Berenice Marlohe) who fails to be rescued by 007 and is killed shortly after making her grand entrance. Why, then, the astounding popularity and critical acclaim that met the movie? The answer is that, if Bond has changed, so have we.

The plot of Skyfall is a variation on the age-old myth of the phoenix, as Bond makes a comeback from the realm of the dead, first literally and then metaphorically. After being presumably killed in the film's action-packed opening sequence, the spy who never dies reappears in London ready to protect his country under attack. Yet this is an enervated Bond well past his prime, his physical decline accompanied by the psychological scars resulting from so many years of chasing bad guys.

M (Judi Dench) is not herself, either. Underneath her steely demeanour, she suffers from pangs of conscience and doubts whether she still has what it takes to get the job of saving England done. If it seems to be too late for the old M to pick herself up, the film proves that it is certainly not too late for Bond. He regenerates, overcomes his decaying slumber, and goes back to being his brash, assured self in the final part of the movie.
