Review The movie has its flaws: Marieta can get downright vicious and nasty sometimes, Berta's son Paulito never seems fully realized, several subplots vanish without resolution, and the ending is a too pat considering the roughness of the preceding story. Still, every time 20 Centimeters feels a little slow, or annoying, or vague, the musical numbers kick in and their intense energy seems to make everything all right.

Review "The film's story may be slight," Ed Gonzales at Slant concurs, "but Salazar's sparkling tribute to an alternative lifestyle and unconventional female beauty is liberating." He elaborates: "Salazar's humor is...cruder and less affecting than Pedro Almodovar's, but his love for women is touching: The film's best scene is a fateful encounter between Spanish cinema's homeliest divas - Monica Cervera, as Marieta, and Rossy de Palma, as a fellow prostitute who's been around the block one too many times - and Marieta's apartment complex is a colorful nucleus bursting with the spastic energy of hot-tempered trannies and abuelitas, a dwarf, and Spain's answer to the snaggle-toothed Edith Massey."
