Dividing Bar

You'd think this was a broad, mean-spirited comedy about a fat kid. It's not. It's a fairly light film with some darker undertones that covers familiar coming-of-age material about twelve-year-old boys -- the best friend, the first girlfriend, the bullies, the absent father and idolised substitute father, squabbles with sisters, cuddles with mother, glimpsed porn and filched bras, the beloved dog -- with a unique twist: the protagonist is not merely a bit chubby, but severely obese. The film is quite clear how serious this is: it opens with the boy's doctor telling him that his heart will give out if he doesn't lose weight. So he sets to and exercises, though he can't resist his love for fatty food. And there may be hope for him, as the director of this film was obese at the same age, and apparently isn't now.
