Original, small Mexican feel-good tragicomedy has its heart in the right place
In this Mexican tragicomedy, Fede is lonely and obese and almost never leaves his dilapidated apartment. Walking or physical exertion of any kind is a tedious, risky undertaking for Fede. He earns his money doing simple work at home. Weekly visits from his dominant, protective sister Rosaura and docile brother-in-law Ramón are the only diversion in his existence.
One day Fede finds an undeveloped roll of film and decides – whatever it might take – to bring it to the camera shop. This new step leads to two unexpected friendships, which then lend him the courage to dream of life as a photographer, and then to an opportunity to leave town … .
In each and every scene there is an undertone of respect and love for the ostensibly inept main character. Walking Distance opens our eyes to the small things in life that are more important and more worthwhile than they seem at first glance. This is a beautifully photographed feel-good movie with an original, refreshing story and carefully dosed humour.
