Movie Info

An Argentine comedy, this film follows Alejandro (Vicentico), who works as a driver but is looking for better opportunities. His client, Sergio (Fabián Arenillas), mistakenly comes to believe that Alejandro is acquainted with his porn-star brother, Luis (Diego Olivera). This leads to a series of events that include Alejandro's girlfriend, Cecilia (Cecilia Biagini), and Sergio's wife, Susana (Susana Pampín), as well as a moneymaking scheme involving allegedly mystical gloves.

Critic Reviews for The Magic Gloves

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (3)

  • Depression, drugs and professional stasis commingle in The Magic Gloves, a limp urban comedy not nearly as whimsical as its title.

    November 8, 2006 | Rating: 2/5
  • The Magic Gloves is a city symphony in which the metropolis seems an illusory maze and the melody is based on a refrain of recurring riffs.

    November 7, 2006
  • The film's amusing running gags notwithstanding, Rejtman makes the mistake of adopting the depressed, disinterested feelings of his characters, confusing apathy for poetry.

    October 30, 2006 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Fine performances all round, some very droll sight gags and a laconic but illuminating script make for very enjoyable viewing.

  • Capello provides an engaging, deadpan performance, quietly acceding to his increasingly convoluted living and working arrangements, and finding solace in his own gentle style of disco-dancing.

    August 3, 2004 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The filmmaker, although critical of people who expect miracles, who passively wait for someone or something to solve their problems, is not terribly sympathetic to his characters.

  • [Director Martin] Rejtman depicts every crisis and solution in the film in the same unflappable, static style, generating humor from the characters' and the camera's persistent lack of reaction.
