Melancholy & Deadpan: The Films of Martín Rejtman

Synopsis

Mariano, 16, inexplicably and without warning, shoots himself twice and improbably survives. Then, life goes on. His brother pursues a romance with a girl working at a fast-food joint, his mother takes off on a trip with a stranger, and Mariano recruits a woman to join his medieval wind ensemble.

Our take

Rejtman’s comeback 11 years after The Magic Gloves did not disappoint. Taking a suicide attempt as the starting point and surprising us at every turn, Two Shots Fired is a fascinating and subversive exercise in comedy: its sophisticated storytelling, dark humor and deadpan beauty are just genius.

The film’s comedy comes in two forms: the perverse ingenuity linking one scene to the next, and the specific jokes in each one… Rejtman’s sense of humor is one worth acquiring, but even if it remains inaccessible to viewers, his feel for place-based inertia reveals an ambition belied by his films’ modest surfaces.

Rejtman has no interest in playing with his audience, nor does he seem to want to intimate that there is an overarching structuring device that will ground his story or clarify his intent. One could see the Argentinean director’s entire film as a mere digression, but that would belittle its characters, who have agency, even if they act in ways unexpected in our usual definitions of cinema.

The droll, shape-shifting “Two Shots Fired,” the newest movie from the Argentine filmmaker Martín Rejtman (the subject of a current retrospective at the Film Society of Lincoln Center), accomplishes the strange feat of constantly thwarting expectations without ever varying its tone or moving the needle of excitement.
