Paraíso

Following her award-winning debut Cinco días sin Nora, Chenillo returns with a delightful comedy drama about the trials and tribulations of moving to the big city. When overweight childhood sweethearts Carmen and Alfredo leave Ciudad Satélite for a promotion in the capital, they soon lose their blissful satisfaction with themselves and each other. Suddenly self-improvement is the name of the game, and the divisive pressure threatens to jeopardise their relationship. With excellent comic timing, Chenillo masterfully skewers the metropolitan obsession with body image, and resolutely refuses to believe that weight loss equals happiness.
