Flâneur II: Dandy

Torben Skjødt Jensen, Denmark, 1995

27 min.DK/Experimental

»The sense of solitude, since my childhood. The sense of a destiny eternally solitary.« Charles Baudelaire (1821-67) writes of loneliness, of the poet's impossible competition with the beauty nature brings forth, of the sensation of not belonging anywhere and the consequent desperate romantic longing to get »out of this world«. Of the journey as a state of being. These fragments provide the foundations for DANDY. Dandyism was an idea Baudelaire very much helped to introduce; but he was not the only one. It was part of the age, part of modern, rootless man. DANDY is in continuation of Skjødt Jensen's FLÂNEUR, which was based on Italo Calvino's The Invisible Cities. As in the latter, the journey is used as a metaphor for man's restlessness and seeking, and as in the latter, the video language is fragmented and thus in harmony with its source.
