Fans of Hedwig and the Angry Inch rejoice because 20 Centimetres is for you!
Marieta/Adolfo is a pre-op transsexual who anticipates the day when she can be relieved of what’s topping her from being a woman. While Marieta’s waking life is a misery, it is during her dreams she finds her confidence and va-va-voom as a part of flamboyant musical numbers.
20 Centimeters is a riotous comedy with a decidedly Almodovaresque slant. The dance numbers aren’t that good – while there’s obviously some good dancers here, the chorography is rather pedestrian and somewhat juvenile, and because Cervera can’t actually sing that well, she and the musical numbers grow a bit tiresome and also slow down the pacing.
