The Lock Charmer (El cerrajero)
One for our Spanish-language readers, El cerrajero is a new film by Natalia Smirnoff about an Argentinian locksmith who has surprising insights about his customers lives.
"The so-called "Smoke Days" that occurred for a couple of weeks in Buenos Aires in 2008, when the city was blanketed in a malodorous fog of unknown origin, are the perfect backdrop for Smirnoff's story, with its occasional touches of magical realism, though her small cast of characters finally emerges as recognizably human despite the somewhat unnatural twists and turns of the story. After a world premiere at Sundance, this humble, 75-minute tale will work its modest magic at other festivals and in niche release in the Hispanosphere."
