Fun little photo montage with a couple of great "dance numbers"
A half-hour photo montage made up of 1500 out of over 4000 pictures Agnes Varda took while vacationing in Cuba. It deals with the revolution of Fidel Castro and his crew, its effects on the people (shown in a very positive light by Varda) and the island's cultural history. It's decent, but mostly forgettable. The best part are the two or three "musical numbers." There is beautiful Cuban music throughout the film, but there are a couple of sections where Varda makes her photographic subjects dance and sing. That's quite fun. 7/10.
