20 Centimeters (2005) Director:  Ramón Salazar Writer:  Ramón Salazar (screenplay) Stars:  Mónica Cervera, Pablo Puyol, Miguel O'Dogherty   Size plays a major role in “20 Centimeters,” a brash, vivacious concoction of dark comedy, light drama and musical performance written and directed by Ramón Salazar. For starters, the title refers to the length of its main character’s penis, nearly eight inches. Marieta, né Adolfo, a pre-op transsexual narcoleptic (convincingly played by Mónica Cervera), wants those inches to vanish, and nothing can come between her and the surgery that will make it happen, not even a hunky fruit-stocker who likes her as is. During spells of sudden sleep, Marieta dreams that she is the star of huge, spicy (and frustratingly hit-or-miss) song-and-dance numbers in a wide variety of musical styles, most prominently Spanish and American pop songs.   Here is the link to the film at the Internet Movie database:
