LOCK CHARMER
EL CERRAJERO
2014, Memento Films, 77 min, Argentina, Dir: Natalia Smirnoff

A Grand Jury Prize nominee at the Sundance Film Festival, this charming drama explores the human need for direction by employing a touch of magic realism. The “Smoke Days” of 2008 in Buenos Aires leave Sebastian (Esteban Lamothe) with an unusual ability to see into peoples’ lives as he fixes their locks. The commitment-phobic locksmith is also dealing with a pregnant girlfriend and an unexpected house guest, and his strange new power may be the key to putting his own life in order. In Spanish with English subtitles.
