The Magic Gloves
Dir. Martin Rejtman (2003). Martin Rejtmans follow up to Silvia Prieto is a similarly absurdist comedy with another depressed, somewhat downwardly mobile protag. Timing is everythingthis is the sort of movie in which elaborate schemes come to naught and a long-established couple break up 10 minutes before a planned dinner. The Seinfeldian punch line has the hapless anti-hero dancing alone in a disco, surrounded by teenagers.
