Nacho Vigalondo

Spain, Comedy/Drama/Sci-Fi, 201190 min, RedOne, ColorSpanish with English subtitles

Julio wakes up with one hell of a hangover. As he gradually takes in his surroundings, it's obvious he's not in his own bed. He introduces himself to Julia, his apparent hookup from the night before, and they go through the typically awkward conversation. Julia is clearly trying to get him out of her apartment as soon as possible. But as he gathers his belongings, they realize that things are much too quiet, even for a Sunday. A quick trip to the balcony reveals absolutely no one on the street. They gaze off into the distance and see a huge spaceship looming on the horizon. While they struggle to understand what they're seeing, Julia's neighbor Angel stops by. Angel brings news of the alien invasion, and it becomes apparent that he's obsessed with Julia and maybe even spying on the apartment. When Julia's live-in boyfriend Carlos comes home, things become even more complicated. (Synopsis by Luke Mullen)

Antonio Farfán is a middle-aged man who works in a notary's office. He has always believed he is a failure because he is bald, short and fat. Though his mind is never silent, his life goes along almost uneventfully until the new notary arrives: a fatter, balder and shorter man who, unlike Antonio, is successful and loved by others. Dazed and confused, Antonio is now thrown out to the real world where he faces his own fears and ends up living pretty unexpected situations. With an animation style all its own, playing smartly with depth of field, Gordo, calvo y bajito is an impressive cinematic debut, screening internationally and recently receiving a Special Mention at the Warsaw Film Festival.
