An irresistible comic fable that breaks down gender and body size stereotypes, ELLA ES RAMONA stars renowned stand-up comedian Andrea Ortega Lee (also known as “Manchita”) as the titular protagonist, a magnetic, upbeat 30-something wrongly fired for her full figure. With its razor-sharp wit and immaculate production design, this essential comedy out of Mexico is reminiscent of Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s AMELIE.

Ramona es una mujer con kilos de más y suerte de menos. Recuerda una niñez con maltratos de su madre, su hermana y sus amigas. Era Ramona panzona, Ramona la tragona o Ramona Jamona. Y ya adulta, las cosas no mejoraron. La corren del trabajo por gorda, quiere hacerse una liposucción pero su doctor le informa que no es candidata a ese tipo de intervenciones por “gorda”, y todo su universo parece derrumbarse por una sucesión de infortunios. Todo parece enmendarse, cuando por casualidad se cruza con un café tarot donde venden unos escarabajos mágicos que le cambiaran la vida.

Directed by Hugo Rodriguez. Written by Beto Cohen and Hugo Rodríguez. Starring Andrea Ortega Lee. 83 min, 2015. Mexico. Spanish with English subtitles.
