The notion of intrigue refers to an act executed with cunning and caution , so that its development or its true intentions are hidden. The concept can also be used in reference to a mystery or yet unresolved dilemma .

For example: "In the advances of the series is raised the intrigue that will develop throughout the chapters", "The appearance of hundreds of dead penguins on the southern beaches is a reason for intrigue among scientists", “The boxer's statements generated intrigue about his future.

In the field of literature and of movie theater , the idea of ​​intrigue refers to set of events that constitute the knot of a work . This is what awakens interest in the public, causing tension while awaiting resolution.

Take the case of a movie which begins with the finding of a dead man in his own house . The police arrive at the place from the complaint of a neighbor, who felt a foul smell. Since the door was locked, agents must break it to enter. Inside the house they find nothing scrambled or traces of violence. It is soon known that the victim did not have a partner or relatives, so it is unknown who could have the keys to the property. Who killed the subject? That is the film intrigue , which in the level of fiction must solve the main character (a detective) and that, for the viewer, is a mystery that will keep him in suspense until the end of the story.

The intrigue is attractive to us by nature, because it touches us in the depths of our being, in a region where our curiosity , our sense of adventure, a series of very primitive sensations that as much as we try to cover with the customs of modern life accompanies us from the origin of our species and can come to light spontaneously, without asking permission.

Living is a verb that can be defined in many ways, but all of them are spun by an impossible need to ignore: solve problems . A trouble it is not necessarily a negative thing, it is not that they have stolen a very expensive membership or that we have contracted a serious illness; Any question that requires an effort on our part to overcome it successfully is a problem, from breathing (that we do it naturally unless we have a disorder) to our relationship with the ambient temperature.

That said, we understand that the need to solve problems is intrinsic to our species. For this reason, when we meet by chance (or not) with an intrigue, it is very difficult to ignore it and move on as if nothing had happened, because something in us will surely push us to try to clarify it. If we take a look at the series and movies that the biggest audience brands collect per year on television and cinema respectively, we will notice that the stories Police officers are always in the top positions.

Although the human being can become very reluctant to change, the intrigue carries with it that promise of clarification at the end, both in fiction and in reality. It is not the same to have to move by force and leave our friends behind than to start hearing strange noises in the neighbor's house: the first situation can be very difficult to get through, because we do not know if we will adapt one day; the second, however, activates in us the need to discover the origin of the noises, trusting that we will achieve it, even if it is not.
