20 Centímetros

(Spain/France, 2005, 114 minutes)

A narcoleptic transvestite saving up for a sex-change operation dreams herself in elaborate musical production numbers to make up for the misery of her daily life. Colourful, off-centred melodrama that looks like something Pedro Almodóvar might have dreamt up but, despite a game cast, lacks his wit and talent; that said, not badly done, with good technical credits.
