Spanish musical comedy telling the colourful tale of Marieta/Adiolfo (Mónica Cervera): a narcoleptic, pre-op transsexual who longs to remove the last 20 centimetres of sexual organ that keep her from being the woman she longs to be. Whenever she drifts off into one of her narcoleptic reveries, her dreams transform into vibrant musical numbers from Madonna to Dusty Springfield - of which she herself is invariably the star.

3.0 out of 5 stars "He who wants to become a she." 18 Dec 2006
By A Customer
Meandering, overlong and sort of dull in parts - when it really shouldn't be at all - the Spanish film 20 Centimeters is a heart-felt exploration of a transvestite prostitute whose life is driven by the desire to get rid of her male appendage all of which 20 centimeters long.

Endlessly weighed down by a bunch of uninspired B-grade musical numbers - some of which are better than others - the stars Malaga-born actress Mónica Cervera plays Adolfo/Marieta, a transvestite who wants to get rid of what's between her legs so that she can be liberated into a life of unadulterated womanhood.

The problem is that prostitutes in Madrid don't get paid that much, so she's having problems raising the money for the surgery. To make things worse for her, she's also a narcoleptic, dozing off and leaving the menial tasks of this world behind her to star in her very own dreamed-up Technicolor musical spectaculars.

Marieta lives in a run-down apartment complex with her best friend Tomas (Miguel O'Dogherty). Most of the building is inhabited by a bunch of women who shout obsenities to each other through the stariwells, but for Marieta solace is provided in the form of buddy Berta (Concha Galan), who's involved in unspecified shady dealings, and won't tell Marieta what they are. While Berta is at work, Marieta looks after Berta's son Paulito (Richard Shaw).

Marieta takes a job as a railroad station cleaner, but falls alseep on the job and is fired. But in the meantime she thinks she's found love in hunky fruit packer Raul (Pablo Puyol), with whom she embarks on an intense sexual relationship.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hugely entertaining 31 Mar 2008
I watched this film at an arty Spanish Film Festival two years ago and it was full of beret-wearing appreciaters of the arts. They frantically made notes and nodded in the right places and I felt extremely out-of-place (being an IT Consultant). But, once I stopped trying to see the "hidden meanings" and "cultural significance" in this film, I really started to enjoy it! Just thinking about some of the scenes can make me laugh out loud and I'm always telling people about the funny and outrageous things that are depicted. I really recommend it to people who just want to have a fun evening. And you may even find it to be poignant!

1.0 out of 5 stars 20 centimetres 11 Feb 2010
I thought it was rather like trying to eat porridge through an intrevenous drip. What's the point and why would you want to do it anyway? If this is real life then please plug me back into the Matrix!
