There’s an essential difference between Fifteen Days at the Beach, Flavia de la Fuente’s previous film, and The Walk. While the first one’s matter is the natural beauty of the ocean, the second one seeks beauty where apparently there is none. And, even better, it finds it. In both films we can strongly perceive that typical melancholy of a beach city out-of-season, but in The Walk there’s also some humor: the concerned street sweeper who talks about the “invaded house,” for example. Or many of the building features in those small houses in San Clemente del Tuyú (where De la Fuente moved years ago) made with more love than criteria or knowledge. The use of sound in The Walk is also quite remarkable: it’s a predominantly animal sound that contrasts against the unchangeable materialness of the houses. And for those who enjoy noticing it, there’s some off-frame value: behind those closed homes with their blinds shut we can nevertheless hint life –there’s some music, or the distant rumor of a TV. As if the locals had closed the drapes to the outside world. LM (29th MDP Film Fest’s catalogue)
