Alice still lives here, 17 June 2009
Author: Lee Eisenberg ( from Portland, Oregon, USA

A weird spin on "Alice in Wonderland" portrays a woman moving to a small Cuban town to be a drama teacher, only to discover that it's the town to which people get sent as punishment. There's something wrong with everything about the place! I figure that "Alicia en el pueblo de Maravillas" was intended as a satire on life in Cuba. Mostly, it comes across as the sort of movie that Terry Gilliam (or Jean-Pierre Jeunet) would have made.

Next year, Tim Burton has his own version of Lewis Carroll's story coming out (starring Anne Hathaway, Johnny Depp and Alan Rickman). I will certainly be eager to see it, but it'll be hard-pressed to attain the bizarre feeling created by this version. I certainly recommend this one. It looks as though one pill does make you small after all...
