'Urgent Simplicity' in Mulloy's Cuban-Set Drama Una Noche: Film Review

5 September 2013 3:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Una Noche’: Lucy Mulloy debut feature presented with ‘urgent, rough-hewn simplicity’ (photo: Anailín de la Rúa de la Torre, Javier Núñez Florián, Dariel Arrechaga in the movie ‘Una Noche’) The story of three Havana teenagers attempting to escape Cuba for a better life in America is conveyed with urgent, rough-hewn simplicity in director Lucy Mulloy’s Una Noche. Making very effective use of Cuban non-pro actors, Mulloy takes us around the mean streets of Havana, where the shops are empty, but private homes stock everything from jewelry to motors to HIV meds.

“Write what you know” is the axiom most first time storytellers follow. But English-born writer/director Lucy Mulloy, who studied at Nyu under film studies professor Spike Lee, decided to take on the opposite approach for her feature debut, “Una Noche." “I wasn’t thinking about it being my feature debut or anything grandiose,” Mulloy said about the Cuban-set movie she started as a thesis short and then expanded into a feature. Starring Dariel ArrechagaJavier Núñez Florián and Anailín de la Rúa de la Torre, the magnetic drama tells the story of three teenagers who dream of escaping Havana for a better life in the U.S. and then are forced to do so when one is accused of assault. And the film was certainly well received. It cleaned up at Tribeca Film Festival in 2012 taking home Best Actor, Cinematography, and New Director honors in the Narrative competition, and »
