3 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Juan and Maria two young people who are in love communicate through letters written by penman(Pedro). When the young man leaves town, to become a pilot, the girl discovers she is really in love with the one who wrote the letters. This is a wonderful movie, with three great actors. Victor Laplace, Miguel paneke and one of the most beautiful and talented cuban actress Ivonne Lopez Arenal. Unforgettable story, based on the book of Gabriel Garcia marques and screenplay by Eliseo Alberto. Letters from the park is a masterpiece directed by the legendary Tomas gutierres Alea and photographed for the amazing cinematographer Mario Garcia.
