Accurate rendering of life in Puerto Rico in the 1940's.
13 July 2002 | by (Austin, Texas USA) – See all my reviews

I grew up in Puerto Rico at the time depicted in the movie. I was in my late teens and early 20's just about the age of Mr. Julia in the movie. I was in the same social circle as shown in the movie and can state that the customs shown are very accurate. Every time I see the movie I remember the happy days of my youth.
