An overlooked epic family drama set during that period of change in Cuba that we're all familiar with, written by the guy who wrote VANISHING POINT. Largely ignored, probably due to its very un-Hollywood politics. Bill Murray is in full effect, being funny as hell.
I dont know what to say about movie. Actually, i found it one-sided and against revolution. But only Cubans know the truth, not the rest of us, so i keep away from making political comments.
This movie can seem a little bit long and boring if you are not interested in Cuban Revolution. But you can watch Ines Sastre! My God, what a beauty!
