  Who does not, the extra pounds, which are by too much chocolate, chips or similar calorie sins of their way to the body and thus become problematic. Of these, the protagonists of this Spanish comedy sing a song, so they go to a game in group therapy, to finally achieve the dream weight, and thus find happiness on earth – does not it? Abel (Roberto Enriquez), a gap in the market has found: It offers courses for thickness (or those who feel they are thick), struts his aesthetic astral body from unhappy and overweight people along and tries to talk and behavioral therapy to a better body awareness, weight reduction and, consequently, contribute a more beautiful life. Right at the beginning of each group therapy he requires of his subjects, however, a daunting task, because everyone should be to strip naked to her body to introduce yourself and the others. Clear that even the first throw in the towel here. Those who persevere are obviously not deter the torture of dieting, of renunciation and to take the longer-term transition to life itself. The personnel director Daniel Sánchez Arévalo going off here, is extremely colorful and has mixed with all the efforts (whether thick or thin), but only one wish: happy and loved. When there: the beautiful Paula (Verónica Sánchez) would be, their label partner Abel, from The same child, and by now the (short term) obesity condemned, so he comes again to his own mental and libidinal limits. Furthermore, Enrique (Antonio de la Torre), a gay entertainer, who was himself formerly slim, campaigned for a diet resources and this has had dire need of your own. At his side Pilar (Pilar Castro will be provided), which differ from his homosexuality in general can not be put at rest, following the motto: “You just have not slept with the right woman!” It is the rail thin (though only slightly toned) Alex (Raúl Arévalo), who wants as uptight Catholic no sex without marriage, but it the sins of love with his chubby girlfriend Sofia (Leticia Herrero) surrenders that are against the prohibition of extramarital sexual intercourse, being duly defends and handles their loved ones with lascivious finesse around the finger. Is hard to believe that Leonor (María Morales), successful business woman who participates in the group therapy of Abel, since their excess pounds are actually so not significant, and they want to only their friends slim love ( a hopeless task). Then you will also Andrés (Fernando Albizu), XXL format and the father of dizygotic twins, who seems actually quite happy to be with his flesh masses. His wife Beatrice (Tete Delgado) brings at least as much kilos on the scales, but this whole Diätwahn says categorically from the outset. Their children in turn, Luis (Adam Jerzierski) and Nuria (Marta Martín), beharken be persistent, because of an “unterdünn” and the other “überdick is”. The question is not to be forgotten, whether indeed the brother of Luis and Nuria Andrés is her father. A small random murder is also a birth takes place and there is of course a Mende Sex! Moreover, the gay-frustrated lives of the characters from counting calories, Arguing and loved ones, while retaining not the humor of the film makes the profundity of the theme in mind: Does it actually a happier life merely because the BMI tables accordingly be positive? The film gives a very clear answer: No! Gordo – the weighting is according to Daniel Sánchez Arévalo, who was talking in 2007 with the drama Dunkelblaufastschwarz of himself, not a “film about the physical, but emotional about the obesity”. An amazing view, which indicates the credo of the movie and even treated the way issues such as hidden homosexuality or the double standards of Catholicism. What might appear at first glance as a moralizing lesson reveals itself quickly as a refreshing comedy in the style of Woody Allen’s bittersweet or a parody of a Pedro Almodóvar – or should it be different around? Anyway, have fun watching, and then eat uncontrollably! (Silvy Pommerenke)
