The Magic Gloves
Filmfest 2004

When Alejandro, a good-natured car-service driver runs into a fast-talking self-made man one evening, he begins spiraling into an adventure he can’t control. For what his new acquaintance triggers is nothing less than a complete change in Alejandro’s life. Accompanied by a steadily growing number of warm-hearted, pill-popping, lucid psychotics, he finds himself suddenly rich by selling one-size-fits-all ‘magic gloves’. In his third feature film, Rejtman creates an endearing gallery of characters whose poker-faced wit and unpredictable observations have a logic all their own in a shimmering, often nocturnal Buenos Aires.
