Storyline

Antonio Farfan is a 46 year old man working in a notary's office who has always believed that his personal and professional failure is the inevitable result of his looks: he is bald, short and fat. Though his mind is never silent, his life goes almost uneventfully until the new notary arrives: a fatter, balder and shorter man that, unlike Antonio, is successful and loved by others. Dazed and confused, Antonio is now thrown out to the real world where he faces his own fears and ends up living pretty unexpected situations. Written by anon

9 August 2012 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

Even when the animation of this movie quality isn't anything way too incredible (Being a strange combination of rotoscoping and real sceneries) the plot of this movie was quite effective, with a convincing combination of comedy and drama, which results into an honest, believable film with a good message of optimism that isn't corny or forced. The main character is particularly interesting: Instead of being just the typical cliché of the good-natured "loser", it feels like a very realistic character, which is very hard to hate or love due his complicated, ambiguous personality, which at the same serves to make him relatable, as someone that could be find in everyday life. The sense of humor from this movie was clever and well done: The pacing is almost perfect, making a nice balance of the comical and the serious situations, resulting in something very enjoyable to watch. "Fat Bald Short Men" is a solid animated film, with many good characteristics that deserve to be taken in consideration.
