History of Galician emigration to Cuba
20 April 2003 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this on TeleLatino TV in Canada and regret that it seems unavailable on videotape as I would like to recommend it to friends. Centred on two characters who emigrate from Galicia to Cuba early in the 20th century, it follows their lives, and social developments in Cuba and Spain, over the next fifty years. The film is lovely to watch; the Galician and Cuban settings seemed entirely convincing (I have been to Galicia, never to Cuba). Given the historical scope, the film seems somewhat episodic at times (perhaps an artifact of its having been edited for television). Some characters appear and disappear without much explanation. Francisco Rabal is outstanding as another Galician emigrant.
