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.

Intimate to your measure
24 August 2017 | by mundodelrevesSee all my reviews

In my poor opinion, "Gordos" its a film that conceive that the problem in many times it is not the obesity of the people if not other problems very hard as the infidelity, fear of having a children, the toxic relationship of two brothers, etc.

Those problems, also, are problems very serious of the society. Even, those problems are very serious than the obesity.

In this film, Daniel Sánchez Arévalo get to transmit this item in many differents lifes where everyone intersect in the weekly meeting. It is a good way to mix the comedy and the drama.
