Critic Reviews for 20 Centimeters (20 Centimetres) (20 centímetros)
There's not much to savor in the way of plot, and the film aimlessly wanders through Marietta's life.
Showing a stylistic bravura and confidence rare among upcoming Spanish helmers, Ramon Salazar's campy 20 Centimeters is a self-regarding but vastly entertaining sophomore effort.
Director Ramón Salazar, in only his second feature, distinguishes himself from others who so less effectively bend genres, and genders.
Here's yet another self-consciously 'Almodóvarian' confection, studded with small odes to the glory of self-creation.
Size plays a major role in this brash, vivacious concoction of dark comedy, light drama and musical performance.
Audience Reviews for 20 Centimeters (20 Centimetres) (20 centímetros)
Visually stunning, somewhat weird but colourful. It's a comedy that is hard to describe, but it's a scrutiny on the world of transexuals, plus it's a musical, what a combination!!!! There's lots of symbolism and subtext, how a transsexual prostitute views the world and the contrast of the harsh reality was impressive.
"A narcoleptic transsexual prostitute finds herself transported into a musical world in which she is the star whenever she falls asleep." Could this movie be any more AWESOME?
[font=Century Gothic]In "20 Centimeters," Marieta(Monica Cervera) is a narcoleptic pre-op transsexual prostitute who lives with Tomas(Miguel O'Dogherty), a dwarf who just inherited a cello from his aunt.(Well, there is something you do not see everyday.) In order to buy opera tickets for the purpose of scalping them, Tomas borrows money from Marieta that she has saved for her operation.[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]At its heart, "20 Centimeters" is a touching movie about a friendship between two people living in an often hostile world. The movie owes a little to Dennis Potter in how it uses musical numbers to contrast Marieta's inner fantasy life with the harshness of the real world. And I was especially impressed that instead of shying away from Marieta's sexuality, the movie instead takes a fearless approach in depicting it as anything but passive.[/font]
