CGiii Comment

The opening song is a SHOCKER - life is a tombola la la la - if you can stomach that, it just gets steadily worse.

A narcoleptic trannie who dreams of penis removal...think: Women On The Verge mixed with My Own Private Idaho and some of the worst renditions of popular songs (ever) and that's what 20cm boils down to. 

A contrived, mish-mash of ideas (ripped-off mainly from Almodovar) - thoroughly painful to watch and the choreography is totally shambolic - just like the rest of this piddle.




The(ir) Blurb...

Colloquially-told story of a few days in the life of Marieta, who's saving money for the last operation in her change from man to woman. She works as a prostitute in Madrid and longs for a legitimate job. Whenever she builds up her savings, her housemate and best friend Tomás finds ways to spend, lose, or cost her those funds. She meets Raúl, whom she likes and who likes her; the trouble is he also likes that part of her she wants removed. If that's not enough, she also has narcolepsy, and when she conks out, she dreams of musical-theater numbers in which she's the singing and dancing star. Are these dreams always going to be 20 centimeters out of reach?
