Finest satire, 28 March 2005
Author: ddcnews from Switzerland

In the last 15 years, some remarkable Cuban films were made that criticized aspects of the Cuban society, being "Strawberry and Chocolate" probably the most known of them and people might think it is also the most critical one.

But only "Alicia en el pueblo de maravillas" dares the unthinkable: it puts Fidel Castro and the role of his Comunist Party in the target of the critics. No one else did this before.

I have seen this film full of metaphors at least 3 times. Each time I discover new details. It requires a deep knowledge of the Cuban society and history to unveil the many symbols.
