Critic Reviews for Gordos
That set-up sounds a bit overweight and it's true Arévalo might have been well-advised to trim it a little, but it's surprising how well he manouevres between the storylines drawing parallels and finding a wealth of tension and humour in each.
Audience Reviews for Gordos
"Gordos" (overweight) is a Spanish film from the director who brought you "DarkBlueAlmostBlack". The movie has wonderful performances and a good script that moves from comedy to drama without realizing it. Pleasant funny film!
a very tight-knit montage dramedy about appetites: the perils of whetting and/or suppressing them. This tale of vastly different lives works surprisingly well, though I had my doubts after the opening scene. Ultimately it addresses the choices we make on a daily basis, especially regarding what we allow into our bodies.
