This film follows the crisscrossed fortunes of, among others, a rock musician, a flight attendant, a dog walker with an alarming penchant for over-the-counter medication, and a cab driver, who doesn’t really care about his life spiralling out of control, as long as he can sit in his old Renault 12.
Fuelled by a top-form ensemble cast, The Magic Gloves is one of Argentine auteur Martín Rejtman’s funniest films. This clever, humoros take on the mid-30s crisis is another trademark mix of absurdist charm and endearing warmth. A unique view of Buenos Aires full of lively, strange characters.
