Storyline

Abel is a therapist who regularly meets with a handful of clients struggling to deal with the physical and emotional problems of being overweight. Enrique is an actor best known as the spokesman for weight loss product who loses his job now that he is fat again; he is also wrestling with his sexuality when he begins dating Pilar, the wife of his business partner, after identifying as gay most of his life. Sofia is engaged to Alex, a committed Christian who ignores her sexual needs. While Sofia is able to reawaken her fiancée's libido, when she begins losing weight she finds he's most attracted to heavy women. Leonor has turned to food for comfort while her boyfriend is in the States. And Andres is a scientist married to Beatriz; they and their daughter are overweight, while their son is not. And as slender Abel tries to guide his clients to healthier and happier lives, he's forced to confront his own issues with fat people when his wife Paula balloons out during pregnancy.

Maybe the best Spanish comedy of 2009
14 February 2010 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

2009 was a really bad year for Spanish movies, till the very end of the year din't arrived any good title to our cinemas. Then suddenly arrived Rec 2, Agora, Celda 211... some great movies than saved the year. But between all that great movies was a very nice title than passed walking on tiptoes... not great promotions, not great supports from celebrities or TV channels... just a great idea, a great director, a nice script and a solvent actors.

This movie is not only about some fat guys than try to get his nice weigh, is about humanity, about how everyone try to get his way, about how people can avoid the obstacles and look to the future. It is about everyone, every guy/girl takes a different perspective of the problems... and much more. But It is not everything, is a great comedy. Maybe you will not burst out laughing, but you will show a great smile all the time, and maybe some laugh. The very nice part of this movie is than don't mind how sad is a that moment, always show a happy face of everything.

Is some more positive points in this movie, the dialog are realistic, fun and VERY intelligent. All the characters are perfectly defined, but maybe the gay guy fails cause his stranger relationship with his best friend wife. Every actor does a great work, no one looks like over-acted or trying to remember his dialog just like the most of the Spanish movie. Seem than Daniel Sánchez is really a very solvent director, and was not only lucky his Azul Oscuro Casi Negro the previous movie.

I really want to recommended this movie for everyone than are looking for take a nice time with a intelligent movie.
