      Connie Ogle Miami Herald There's not much to savor in the way of plot, and the film aimlessly wanders through Marietta's life. Rated: 2/4 Nov 10, 2006 Full Review Jonathan Holland Variety Showing a stylistic bravura and confidence rare among upcoming Spanish helmers, Ramon Salazar's campy 20 Centimeters is a self-regarding but vastly entertaining sophomore effort. Nov 9, 2006 Full Review John Anderson Newsday Director Ramn Salazar, in only his second feature, distinguishes himself from others who so less effectively bend genres, and genders. Rated: 3/4 Nov 1, 2006 Full Review David Noh Film Journal International It all makes one think that the Spanish film industry needs to seriously get hold of itself and stop with these slavish, sub-Almodvarian forays into excess. Mar 1, 2007 Full Review Jette Kernion Cinematical Every time 20 Centimeters feels a little slow or annoying, the quirky musical numbers kick in and their intense energy seems to make everything all right. Rated: 3/5 Jan 24, 2007 Full Review David Cornelius DVDTalk.com Salazar has managed to drain all life out of what should naturally be a most lively project. Rated: 2.5/5 Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member A narcoleptic transsexual prostitute who dreams musical numbers when she is asleep? What is not to love? Brilliantly acted with fantastic characters including a dwarf housemate and a bf who loves to be fucked hard with her big cock. Madonna even let them do the best routine you will ever see to True Love! Amazing! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Nice try, well directed Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Visually stunning, somewhat weird but colourful. It's a comedy that is hard to describe, but it's a scrutiny on the world of transexuals, plus it's a musical, what a combination!!!! There's lots of symbolism and subtext, how a transsexual prostitute views the world and the contrast of the harsh reality was impressive. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Narcoleptic transvestite musical....what's not to like?! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Very good musical, all about laugh and fun. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Love all the musical numbers!!
