(Gordo, calvo y bajito)
Carlos Osuna | Fiction, Drama, Comedy, Animation

2012 | 100 minutes | Colombia

Antonio believed his failures were due to his looks: he is bald, short, and fat. When a fatter, balder, and shorter but successful notary joins the office, he has to face his fears.


Antonio Farfan (Álvaro Bayona) is a 46 year old man working in a notary's office who has always believed that his personal and professional failure is the inevitable result of his looks: he is bald, short, and fat. Though his mind is never silent, his life goes almost uneventfully until the new notary arrives: a fatter, balder, and shorter man that, 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.
