“The smallness of the parts impresses you more than the whole. I am a stroller”, said Austrian writer Joseph Roth once, and Ivan Garcia took that statement –connected to Baudelaire and Walter Benjamin’s urban impressions– as a trigger for his second feature, in which he dismantles tenths of classic films to draw five “strolls” through different cities in the early twentieth century. With an editing style that goes in the same direction as Gustav Deutsch’s Welt Spiegel Kino and many films by Peter Forgács, Sergei Loznitsa and Morgan Fisher, El difícil arte del paseo wanders through Shanghai, Berlin, Paris, Moscow and Tokyo with open eyes and ears, attentive to everything that gets across the camera no matter how small or trivial; confident that the melody of the world is made out of both shrill sounds and comforting silences.
