This Oscar nominated film is the story of two men who are opposites, one gay, the other straight, one a fierce communist, the other a fierce individualist, one suspicious, the other accepting, and how they come to love each other.

This movie reflects exactly a quite polemic EPOQUE for the youth and the Cuban families, I as Cuban young woman of the 90s can say that when I saw this movie it could not stop crying, since just it was like to see my family reflected in her, it was like to remember when I also young man me was dreaming of going to the Africa because to think about this, was transmitting his sensations of freedom and simultaneously of sadness, for something completely unknown. It was then when in the same epoch although not in all the sectors of the society it was the same impact, many families and young people reacted such and since this director shows us in his undoubted intelligent movie. Me impact also the movie, because my mother was always saying that he was reminding him to me and almost it was not up to seeing her when I realized my own mother met me in those years of confusions. Fodder that one of the movies and one of the most important directors of this century!!!!!!!! Sorry for may English!!!! could be worst!!!!!
