Storyline

Cinematographer Carlos Macovich met Yuliet Ortega, a young "jinetera" (prostitute) from Havana, when he shot a video in Cuba, starring model Fabiola Quiroz. When he realized that the two women had not seen their respective fathers for many years, he made this documentary, which is also a reflection on the process of filmmaking.

Trivia

When Yuliet Ortega sees her name written on the screen as "Juliette", the way director Carlos Marcovich thought it was written, she angrily writes on top of it with her name the way she spells it, so it reads on screen "¿Quién diablos es Yuliet?" - arguably the correct title. See more »

like no film I have ever seen before....
28 August 2004 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

I was introduced to this film by a friend of mine. What drew me to

the story, more than anything, was the theme of fatherless young

women. I, too, was a fatherless young woman up until last

November when I finally met my biological father--a physics

professor from Venezuela.

Fabiola, the beautiful Mexican model, and Yuliet, the beautiful,

sassy and broken sixteen year old prostitute from Cuba are

amazing to watch. Both young women grew up without knowing

their biological fathers and carry emotional baggage and pain

locked up in their hearts. Although, the subject matter of child

prostitution, despair and intense identity crisis seem heavy, the

film is funny and uplifting. It also is emotionally rich and may very

well make you cry. I found myself wishing the best for both young

women. Their beauty and strength of character really struck a

chord in my heart. Thank you to the director and the young women

who brought so much to this story.
