Ivo Aichenbaumn agrees to take a cultural tourism trip together with a group of young Jewish people, so he can visit his father in Israel where he works as a doctor since his economic exile in 2001. His portable camera records the whole experience and results in a reflexive travel journal in which the Wandering Jew he evokes becomes a video director of modern life who transforms a family album into a surface that features the tension between what’s familiar and what’s strange, immediacy and distance, ideology and informality. The itinerary’s result is a clash against a culture that multiplies its past vices in order to create a critical, disinherited view that attacks from a lucid present. If the film’s title refers to a kid’s game is because La parte automática has enough spontaneous freedom and playful vitality to advance to the next square with new energy, even if pain, heartbreak, and perplexity load the dices.
