This dark humored, animated film tells the story of Antonio Farfán is a 46-year-old man working in a notary’s office who has always believed that his personal and professional failure is the inevitable result of his look: he is bald, short and fat. Though his mind is never silent, his life goes almost uneventfully until the new notary arrives: a fatter, balder and shorter man who, unlike Antonio, is successful and loved by others. Dazed and confused, Antonio is now thrown to the real world where he faces his own fears and ends up experiencing rather unexpected situations.

Simon François de Tours (1606-1671) painted the Queen in the guise of the Virgin Mary, and the young Louis XIV as the infant Jesus, in the allegorical portrait now in the Bishop’s Palace at Sens.
