« Sumo » des Israéliens Sharon Maymon et Erez Tadmor a remporté le Grand prix du 13ème Festival international du Film de l'Alpe d'Huez. Cette comédie suit le quotidien de quatre jeunes obèses qui décident de se lancer dans une carrière de lutteurs de sumo. Le film sortira en France le 27 janvier 2010.
Four overweight friends from the Israeli city of Ramle are fed up of dieting and the dieting club they belong to.
When Herzl (155 kilos), the main protagonist, loses his job as a cook and starts working as a dishwasher in a Japanese restaurant in Ramle he discovers the world of Sumo where large people such as himself are honored and appreciated.
Through Kitano (60 kilos), the restaurant owner, a former Sumo coach in Japan (who is supposedly hiding from the Yakuza in Israel), he falls in love with a sport involving "two fatsos in diapers and girly hairdos". Herzl wants Kitano to be their coach but Kitano is reluctant - they first have to earn their spurs.
"A MATTER OF SIZE" is a comedy about a ‘coming out’ of a different kind - overweight people learning to accept themselves.
